ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Calesita Tango dance school was founded by Dana and Darko, as they had a wish to bring traditional Argentine Tango, Tango Salon, to this part of Europe. There are many styles, and even Tango Salon is not the same everywhere, but we are talking about the style with an emphasis on elegance and improved walking in a closed embrace with your partner and to the music. We teach drop-in group classes twice per week in the heart of Ljubljana.
We teach private tango lessons and prepare couples for the wedding’s first dance. We invite you to visit us during our regular classes or milongas.

Argentine Tango Teacher

Svojo plesno pot je začela še kot otrok, z latinsko ameriškimi in standardnimi plesi, leta 2007 pa se je prvič srečala z argentinskim tangom in življenje je takrat zavilo na novo pot. Leta 2008 je takoj odpotovala v Buenos Aires, kjer je čez dan obiskovala individualne in skupinske tečaje ter nato do jutra plesala na večernih milongah. V Sloveniji in bližnji tujini se je nato udeleževala milong in delavnic številnih gostujočih učiteljev iz Argentine. Že leta 2009, je z željo, da bi spoznala in se učila od maestra Javierja Rodrigueza nadaljevala svojo pot, tokrat je odpotovala v Apuglio, Italijo, kjer je imel tedenski seminar s plesalko Stello Misse. Njegovih tečajev z Andrejo Misse se je v letih 2010 in 2011 udeležila še v Firencah, Italiji. Leta 2011 je odpotovala v Pariz, Francijo, kjer se je eno leto izpopolnjevala pri svetovno znanem paru Sebastjanu Misse in Andreji Reyero in večere preživljala na številnih pariških milongah. Pariz je bil vedno evropski dom tanga. Skupaj z Darkom vodi plesno šolo argentinskega tanga Calesita, kjer poučuje tango salon, kot se ga pleše v Buenos Airesu na glasbo iz zlate dobi tanga, med letoma 1935 in 1955.

Our values

How you dance, not what you dance.

For us it’s important how you dance and not what you dance. Meaning, you can learn meny tango steps and figures, but it all means nothing if they are not danced properly. We truly want to motivate our students to progress also by doing individual exercises. 

FUN, FUN, FUN

Tango is a social dance and we are having lot’s of fun together!

LEARN FROM THE BEST

 

Each year we are hosting one of the best tango couples worldwide who give us their knowledge about the dance and tango culture. Last year we were lucky to learn from one of the leading couples of “Villa Urquiza”style: Andres Laza Moreno and Luciano Arregui. This year we had an awesome workshop with Ivan Terrazas and Sara Grdan. At the same time, we too, travel and learn abroad from the best teachers. On the picture: Darko, Noelia Barsi, Javier Rodriguez and Dana in Trieste.

SOCIAL DANCE

Argentine tango that we teach is going to help you dance better on the tango social events called milongas. We teach tango for the milonga and not for the stage.

Tango school Calesita also organizes milonga “La Calesita”, which was the first regular Saturday milonga in Slovenia, which hosted foreign and local DJ’s and is now one of the most recognized milongas in Slovenia. At least once a month we dance on a great dancefloor and we’re hanging out with tangueros from Slovenia and other European countries and beyond. Tango is a social dance in the truest sense of the word. Genuine human contact still matters most. Schedule of future “La Calesita” milongas can be found here.
