Montango is proud to receive these two high-calibre dancers once again. Sandra and Jorge perform and teach around the world in milongas, festivals and special events. They have worked in several dance companies and have appeared in movies and on TV as guest teachers and choreographers. Sandra and Jorge are known in Montreal for the quality of their dancing and teaching. The couple, charismatic, unique and efficient, have a wealth of knowledge and experience and take great joy and pride in sharing their passion.
Sandra and Jorge describe their teaching method as follows:
"Our mission is delivering to our students the authentic essence of tango. A complete dancer must develop strong body mechanics and awareness, coordination, technique and core strength in order to feel free to move and find harmony in the couple. With technique comes artistry and from a comprehensive understanding of movement, students can create. To help achieve that, we offer organized structured lesson plans, detailed analysis and breakdown of each pattern and movement, which allows our students to feel instant results, from beginners to advanced."
