Very personable with a good sense of humor!!
I have taken tango classes with Daniel Arias for two years now after 8 years of classes in many cities. I have finally found an instructor who teaches one how to dance tango, how to develop one’s own dance, how to understand the music and apply the steps to it, and how tango technique informs the quality of one’s movements. He teaches Argentine tango in its musical and social cultural context. Not.just.tango.steps!
Daniel is an excellent teacher. His focus is on traditional, close embrace tango danced in confined spaces – the real social tango. New or inexperienced dancers – start off right with a firm tango grounding. Mature dancers – eliminate bad habits, cultivate sensitivity to your partner, and improve your floor craft and tango protocol.
Daniel Arias is a wonderful Argentine tango instructor. his classes are informative and detailed. he teaches Argentine tango milonguero style wich is the style danced at traditional milongas in Buenos Aires.
His emphasis is on musicality and connection and tango dancing in reduced spaces. Highly recommended.
Providing an authentic Argentine Tango experience for you right here in Los Angeles, Maestro Daniel Arias is not only unique and highly skilled tango maestro, he also is the only Milonguero style tango class instructor in Los Angeles.
Milonguero tango is characterized by a close embrace dancing style with an emphasis on the connection between you and your partner and expressing ourselves through the music while moving in connected unison. Daniel’s style is the traditional style of tango so prevalent in Milongas throughout Buenos Aires.
Emphasis is also placed on musicality, improvisation and crisp movements. Daniel does not teach steps per se. Rather, he teaches you to develop your tango dance essence so that you may improvise and combine learned tango steps on the spot and immediately participate and connect with the music instead of mechanically dancing to a set of predetermined patterns.
