WELCOME to TANGO CIRCLE!
ENTERING INTO TANGO CIRCLE CLASSES IS POSSIBLE WITH OR WITHOUT A PARTNER.
The learning system that we offer is complete. That means, you will learn tango from all perspectives: HOW TO GENERATE THE DANCE AS LEADERS, AND HOW TO EQUALLY DEVELOP A HIGH LEVEL OF SENSITIVITY TO FOLLOW. BASICALLY, WE APPROACH TANGO AS A LANGUAGE WHERE EVERYONE LEARNS HOW TO ASK AND HOW TO RESPOND.
Our vision of teaching is based on empowerment and on freedom of expression.
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO GUIDE YOU IN YOUR TANGO JOURNEY.

Yerpun Castro

Teacher / Organizer / TDJ

Yerpun Castro began teaching tango in 2007. He was a musician until tango took him over and he learned to use his own body as an instrument. His long career in music and Alexander’s technique classes played a crucial role in his love of tango dance and his approach to teaching.

His pedagogical approach focuses on unlocking the potential of the body, connecting with the partner and the music simply and consistently. He works on the quality of embrace, gait, attitude, sensitivity, aesthetics and musicality.

Here’s how he describes his tango:
My tango is about freedom. Every time I take a new student, my goal is for them not only to learn the canons of tango but also to discover their own dance. I help them replace their standard behaviors that lead to misuse of body and mind with new ones.

My tango is about beauty. The beauty industry bombards us with images of “pretty” girls and “pretty” guys. Tango does something different. Tango makes you truly beautiful. It may sound exaggerated, but I’ve seen people who aren’t pretty at all, but when they dance… it takes your breath away.”

Alina Jacobs

Teacher

The beauty of tango for me as dancer and teacher is that the dance is created every time in the moment while being based on a very profound foundation of practice, culture and history. Tango asks from us to connect deeply with ourselves, with our partner and with the music, and can teach us to be fully in the here and now. It is a dance that can accompany you your whole life and in which you can grow and discover endlessly.

As dance pedagogue  specialized in improvisation (bachelor dance in education) I am able to guide people with different backgrounds with clarity, precision and creativity.
My background as GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® trainer allows me to teach students in developing a supporting posture and fluent movement patterns for their dance. Divers experience as professional contemporary dancer and choreographer adds the artistic approach to my way of teaching and performing.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are customised to your personal needs and are a great possibility to understand and develop your full potential in order to have more joy, freedom and confidence within the social dance. Book your lesson via What’sApp: +31 6 4536 3100
