Text Box: Houston Argentine Tango Association
IN COOPERATION WITH
Always Tango
IS PLEASED TO WELCOME
Teté Rusconi & Silvia Ceriani
OF BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA
TO HOUSTON, TEXAS, MAY 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 2007
 
             Workshop schedules and related information posted at the bottom of this page.

The Houston Argentine Tango Association considers Pedro (Teté) Rusconi to be among Argentina’s national treasures.  Recognized as one of the foremost teachers of Apilado (stacked on) Style of Argentine Tango, also
known as Milonguero Style, Teté
and his partner, Silvia Ceriani, have been dancing and teaching together since
1995.  Teté and Silvia have toured Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and
the United States, offering group and private classes, exhibitions, performances, and instruction as part of tango festivals. Their focus is on musical compases, i.e., interpretative phrasing of the beats found in Argentine Tango
and Tango Vals music, bodily sensibility, and liberty of movement.  Teté is noted for his musicality, and he is acclaimed for his individualistic interpretations of tango valses of the 1940s and 1950s the Golden Era of Music
in Argentina.   While Teté stresses the specific importance of the abrazo (embrace) and puts the feeling of the
music at the heart of the dance, Silvia’s creativity and corporal awareness conveys the essence of femininity.

Valued for their teaching ability, their willingness to travel to share the cultural significance of their dance, and
their
poignant prescription for the joy of dancing, Teté and Silvia will be teaching workshops with themes of Tango
and Tango Vals in Houston the third weekend in May.  For an introduction, or to deepen your awareness of this intuitive and spirited style of dancing, join us.

WORKSHOPS WILL BE PRESENTED FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS

Those with little or no exposure to Milonguero Style Argentine Tango will have the opportunity to participate
at an introductory level.  Workshops will also be held in Tango to accommodate those with experience in the
dance, and workshops in Tango Vals will be available to more advanced dancers.


Paul Pellicoro, tango instructor, recognized cinematic choreographer, and author of the book entitled,
Paul Pellicoro on Tango
(Barricade Books, April 25, 2002), wherein he discusses the “masters of tango,”
Teté and Silvia included.
