The Teachers

Natalia and Agustin (13 - 15 July):  

They conquered our hearts during last year's Scandinavian TiT event in Randers. Very nice, social, and open-minded people, superb teachers, and dancers. The classes are fun, motivating, and bring you further as a dancer. They strongly believe in double role dancing as the future of our social dance and are very motivated to come again to enlighten us with their experience.

 

Nat y Ag will give 2 daily classes about musicality.

Andreas and Mikael (16 - 18 July):

With over 30 years of tango experience, Andreas has a lot to share, as a dancer, teacher, organizer, DJ. You can find more about him here. I am very happy to have him with us during our event.

It is thanks to Mikael that we are here in Åsa :). Together with Andreas, he organizes the Gotenborg queer tango festival, and they teach together during this event. Mikael started tango dancing as a double role dancer, and he gives weekly classes in Gotenborg.  

They will teach every day a 1'15'' hour class 

Elena Shabrova (16 - 18 July):

Elena is our co-organiser for the TiT Moscow event. Dance has always been a part of her life. In 2005 Tango came into her life and it hasn't left her since.

Rather unexpectedly for herself, she also started to teach. Since 2015 she has been training dancers with different levels and skills, both for leading and following roles, individually and in groups. None of us is perfect, and we shouldn't try to be either. Elena will help us to be ourselves in the dance. Every step taken with the music is a dance.
