With their flowing, sensual and graceful style, Michelle and Joachim harmoniously combine the traditional essence of tango with dynamic elements of contemporary tango.
In their teaching they strive to create a sensitive, vibrant and unique connection in the couple and with the music. With useful exercises and imagery, precise technical explanations and body mechanics, and an open flow of energy and ideas, they aim to find freedom and pleasure in movement and expression.
