I have been dancing tango argentino since 2000 and teaching and performing since 2007. In that time I have worked with different partners and taught all over Europe, as well as in Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia and USA. I teach couple classes with a partner and also individual technique classes alone. In Paris I am one of the teachers and co-founder of Tango Mon Amour and I also give private classes both in Paris and during my travels.
You can see my recent videos here.
During the events in which I teach and perform, I also offer conferences on the topics discussed in my essays as well as my insights from bodywork techniques, dance education, neurophysiology, neuroscience, psychology and social dynamics in tango.
Ilyas L., France: "After our class on posture, that same week I went to dance. The first day was so-so. The day after it got worse, seriously worse... I just couldn't feel my back. In the dance, I mean. Nothing was working. Nothing. I couldn't make a turn, couldn't walk, couldn't even disscociate a bit. My partner also was telling me: "I don't feel you. I don't get your lead". It felt horrible and frustrating. I thought: first thing in the morning I call this Toumanova person and tell her: I don't know what the hell you have done to me, but I want my money back, I want my dance back, I want my posture back, probably erroneous but at least before I was able to have fun and enjoy it! Then I decided to give it a try the next day. I don't know what happened. Something clicked. Planets aligned. It was there. That next night we went dancing and... IT WAS WORKING BETTER THAN EVER!!!!"
Marina P., Russia: "I met Veronica in 2014 when she came to teach workshops in my city of Tomsk (Russia). And I believe those were the most useful workshops I have ever attended. Her workshops gave a structure to my knowledge of tango and, most importantly, her pedagogical approach turned out to suit me perfectly and confirmed once again that I was moving in the right direction. Right now I am using my knowledge in my own teaching and hope to meet Veronica again soon."
Sergei V., Russia: "Veronica is very sensitive to each student's specific needs. In a class she is able to really become that student and therefore offer solutions and improvements that hit precisely the right points. Her classes are not about just tango or just people: it is about a specific tango specifically in you. She is also capable of explaining and demonstrating things with very good imagery, so that you immediately can incorporate the images she gives you into your dance. Besides, she is a great source of all kinds of tango tips and tricks: how many followers was I able to enchant just by slightly changing the position of my right hand!"
Aleksey V., USA: "Veronica's pedagogical skills are outstanding! She has a way of explaining things and providing useful tools, regardless of what type of learner you are."
Mélanie T., France: "Veronica is not only an accomplished dancer, she is a beautiful human being able to transmit the knowledge of intelligent movement. Dance is about understanding your body and your energy. Passionately, generously, she invites each one of us to create our own tango, one that matches our inner self."
Galina Z., Belarus: "A solid, well-founded pedagogical approach, well-structured information, beautiful language and a gentle attitude towards the students create this very special atmosphere that is the mark of Veronica's classes."
Gerlinde M., Austria: "Veronica was suggested to me by my German tango teacher when I went to Paris for a longer period - deservedly so. In her courses she starts with simple exercises and before you know it you are learning rather complex movements (and they still feel easy). Thanks to her cheerful personality she makes sure that even the teaching of subtleties or dry body physics still seem light and entertaining. Highly recommended!"
