Tango intermediate level with Gabi & Gustavo
Gabi & Gustavo Gómez
Vivetango – living Tango
Gustavo has been teaching together with Gabi for about 12 years in Germany. Previously, he worked in a dance school in his home country Argentina. Gabi from Munich, Germany, learnt the first steps in Tango with Gustavo during her stay in Argentina in 2002/2003. In December 2003, Gustavo joined Gabi in Germany. Since May 2004 they are married and have two children.
Gabi and Gustavo teach mainly in the south of Munich, Germany, also in Regensburg, Rosenheim, Innsbruck and in Argentina, where they are "at home".
Important Tango personalities who have influenced Gustavo's and Gabi's dancing are: Johanna Copes, Bruno Gibertoni, Alejandra Mantinan, Aoniken Quiroga, Martin Ojeda, Mariana Montes Sebastian Arce, El Pibe Sarandi, Adrian Veredice, Oscar Mandagaran, Jorge el Turco.
Gustavo and Gabi complement each other perfectly in their teaching. Gustavo has a contagious and emotional way in conveying his technique to the man/leader.
Gabi has a background of social sciences and years of professional experience in lecturing. In combination with her Tango training it is the ideal basis for teaching Tango, not only for the ladies. It guarantees that everyone feels addressed individually.
In addition, a shot of humor is never missing, a pinch of "the original Argentine way" and a handful of stories from real life.

The theme of the workshop at La Rogaia:
Discover your own Tango!
Gustavo's and Gabi's philosophy is that everybody already has his or her own tango inside. It is the teachers' task to awaken this inward tango. When we learn Tango we should not try to just copy other dancers. Thomas should dance as Thomas and Anna should dance as Anna. It is the individual originality that Gustavo and Gabi want to convey and promote to their students.
The lessons will focus on:
- Axis and equilibrium: each partner in his/ her own axis and at the same time keeping a common axis
- Male and female technique: walking, joint movements, leading, following and accompanying
- Musicality: phrases in music, legato and staccato, major and minor keys, melody and rhythm, instruments and vocals, breaks
- Precise movements: symbiosis while walking, turning and dissociating
- Improvisation: Getting away from preset structures
- El Abrazo: close embrace and the flowing change to the open embrace
