Luiza Almiron

Luiza Almiron

Luiza is a very talented and an exceptional tango dancer. She started dancing in a primary school. She danced ballroom dances, jazz, salsa and swing/lindy hop and she has been teaching dancing since her studies. She’s been dancing tango for 19 years now and teaching tango since 2003.
Luiza is one of the first tango dancers and teachers in Poland (1998). Since 2009 she’s been working all over the world with her husband Marcelo Almiron, professional Argentinean dancer and choreographer. Their dance is a quintessence of tango, it’s passion, sensuousness, a conversation at different levels.
They give workshops and exhibitions all over the world (i.e exhibitions in milongas in Buenos Aires such as: “Porteño y bailarin”, “Gricel”, Hay un Lugar”, “Cachirulo”).
In cooperation with Luis Bianchi (Argentinean dancer) she produced the first Polish tango show for the theatre (“Tango Historias” 2006), in which she participated as a dancer too.
In Buenos Aires she was teaching tango with another Argentinean dancer Osky Casas in one of the most popular traditional milongas: El Beso (2007-2008). Together with Osky they danced exhibitions in such popular milongas as: “Cachirulo” and “Milonguita” in Buenos Aires.
She organizes workshops and performs in exhibitions in Poland and abroad (Buenos Aires, Italy, Sweden, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Canada, Ukraine etc.).
Tango is like a conversation for her. Her dance is full of warmth, sensuousness and precision.

Teaching methods – from dance to therapy:
Her teaching is based not only in tango. She uses different methods of didactics combining bio-mechanique, psychology, Alexander’s technique, body work and dance/movement therapy techniques, methods of expressive therapies and relaxation techniques.
Based on her vast education and hundreds of hours of special trainings and workshops she created an unique author’s method of teaching - to give her students a deep understanding of the body and movement  so they can discover and develop their potential and enjoy the dance. Technique and aesthetics of movement are important to her but also the fact that the movement was healthy and full of grace.

All the styles – all the music:
She dances all the tango styles: she has experience both in traditional tango/tango salon, tango milonguero, tango nuevo as well as milonga, tango-vals and canyengue.
She’s been working with her husband Marcelo Almiron since 2009. They are one of the few couples in Europe that dance all the tango styles and know how to show and explain their differences and subtle characteristics.
They know well both old styles of tango and contemporary styles and methods of movement. They find themselves perfectly in milonguero style or canyengue as well as in tango tradicional, tango salon. They use lots of tango nuevo solutions and they enrich their dance by tango escenario (tango show). They love milonga too.
On regular basis they organize courses, workshops, special seminars and perform many exhibitions in Poland and all over the world.
