From Buenos Aires, Argentina
Luciana Valle began dancing in the nineties and was part of the Tango Investigation group of Gustavo Naveira and Fabian Salas, a project that produced what is nowadays known as the tango language used all over the world to teach tango.
She is both an expert leader and follower, and has won widespread recognition as one of the best female teachers. She teaches with fantastic energy and exuberance, has a wonderful eye for detail, and uses descriptive movement images, making complex actions accessible. Her classes focus on the structure of the dance, the technical keys to moving comfortably and expressively, and the strong connection between leaders and followers challenging and benefiting both leaders and followers alike. She is a co-founder of the El Motivo Tango.
Since 1999 Luciana has been coming regularly to Portland to teach tango workshops and give privates.
