Teaching methodology of Yiraje Tango, which has been carefully designed throughout 14 years of experience, is focused on body language, communicative aspects of tango, and feelings. Tango dance has nothing to do with rationality and reason, but everything to do with feelings. Rationalisation of tango would mean rationalisation of feelings, which by definition hinders dance expression.
Students are encouraged to learn tango unrelated to dance levels or gender roles. The focus of the lessons is placed on tango dance as a language and communication through body movements. Leaders and followers are encouraged to change roles while dancing in order to develop more profound understanding of dance expression and creativeness. As such, the methodology aims to decrease segregation in tango.
Learning to dance tango develops in interaction between the group’s knowledge (students) and the dance teachers, who propose a movement and then encourage students to explore, analyse and interpret it further.
