Eddy & Vernoica  Hernandez Trill teach and dance tango. They employ a mix of Milonguero style and Tango Nuevo. They describe their style as “ full of passion, creativity and beauty.”  Both learned their craft from some of the most important tango masters in Argentina, including: Antonio Todaro, Pepito Avellaneda, Orlando Paiva, Juan Carlos Copes and Gustavo Naveira and many others. The two teach together and have more than 25 years of experience, teaching and dancing in many different countries:Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Austria and the U.S. and more. They also perform in the most important milongas in Buenos Aires and New York.

Both were raised and educated in Argentina and aim to transform feeling into movement to make the tango more than “just” a dance but an “art of infinite expression.”

When asked the ever perplexing question (especially for men, who pay less attention to our footwear)—What kind of shoes should I get for dancing tango? Eddy gives a few pointers.

“The shoes should be comfortable and flexible Plus the shoes should give you good stability because have good balance is very important when you dance. The tango shoes should be made by an expert shoes maker specialized in dance shoes, especially tango shoes.” says Eddy.

Why the tango for Eddy & Veronica? The response is; “Because it belongs to our culture. We both grew up in Argentina and our families were always involved in Tango. Tango is in our blood.”

Among the duo’s favorite tango songs are: Junto a Tu Corazon, Tormenta, Suerte Loca, and Humillacion..

“We love these songs and many more, because they inspire us to dance from the bottom of our hearts” says Eddy.

Sometimes I feel left out in some of the many tango email I get. They are for tango apparel, women’stango shoes, amusing tips for women dancers. Now THERE are all sorts of half off deals for men but HERE is something I can really use. Nine suprising Tango Tips, an ecourse for me.

All you have to do is sign up and subscribe at permissioneduction.com and you will get one lesson via email every three days. The site also has tons of other great information.

They also note that they do NOT share your information!. By the way Helaine Treitman (author of this course) is in the picture (her dance partner in this photo is her firiend Filippo Avignonesi from Rome).

I have really been trying to get some dancers or instructors to chat with Gricel.org about the tango, about why it specifically appeals to them, about what about the culture of the tango has become part of their lives and why.

But so far, no luck!

I attribute this to something similar to the oft quoted "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture" which was of course the comment of a whiny musician who had some bad notices and felt the need to be clever. In the case of dancing, however, there is something to it, especially in the case of my trying to get people to TALK about dance.

What is there to say? And those who dance professionally or instruct are often more about action.This isn't to say I am going to stop trying. I may just get out the video camera and go to work with that!

As always suggestions welcome and place let us know about Tango events, videos, products and anything to do with Gricel.
 
Every Thursday at 49 N. Federal Hwy in Dania Beach you can practice and dance for two hours. Wine and snacks provided for $15. Have a step you are having trouble with? No problem! Yanira is glad to help

And remember! In July men are half price.

Pablo Repun is teaching a load of tango classes at various points around the USA this summer. The next group are in the D.C./ Baltimore area. Even more interesting Repun has a step by step tango instruction DVD available for purchase at his website. And while I don't think you are going to get the same impact as if you were to take a private lesson or attend a workshop it certainly won't hurt!

Find out more about all of this at the Pablo Repun Website.
