From Los Angeles, CA
She encountered tango by total accident. With no dance experience or training, she had no intention of ever dancing it. But tango had other plans for her…
Tango doesn’t have to be complicated… Yelizaveta aim is to clarify, simplify, and demystify the inner workings of social tango so that dancers have the time of their life whenever they step on the dance floor.
At the Portland TangoFest 2023 she will be teaching a class open to all levels to introduce followers to the art of leading and leaders to discover the meaning of following.
In recent years, her focus has shifted to responding to the acute need in the tango communities for more leaders by teaching women the leading role. She believes that equipping women with the skills to dance both roles empowers them to be in charge of their dance experience and really get what they want out of tango.
At the core of her teaching philosophy are 3 foundational tenets required for becoming a successful and satisfied social dancer: movement, musicality, and mindset. In her classes she incorporates all three so that students can integrate the information and be able to apply it on the dance floor as soon as possible. Everything she teaches is meant to make tango leading less intimidating and more accessible so that students are able to start leading on the social dance floor as soon as possible.
