Workshops

With our yearly trips to Buenos Aires, and after dancing and studying with the finest tango teachers in Argentina and North America, we are constantly improving our own dancing, our teaching methods and also developing numerous contacts in the tango world.  We are pleased to bring instructors of incredible calibre to our Edmonton Tango Community to help all our Edmonton tangueros accelerate their tango learning and to improve their ability to dance social tango!  

Intensive Training with Ivan Terrazas & Sara Grdan

October 5-7, 2018 Thanksgiving Long Weekend

Want to know about Ivan and  Sara and their accomplishments?

Ivan is from Mendoza, Argentina, where he started his artistic career as a soloist at  12 years of age.  He was trained by his parents Eduardo Terrazas and Beatriz Herrera in competition Malambo and other forms of Argentine Folklore, as well as classical ballet and Argentine Tango.  Upon his arrival in the United States, Ivan added salsa and tap to his repertoire.

Kinetic since an early age, Sara studied regional folklore dance and classical ballet technique in Zagreb, Croatia.  Her obsession with Argentine Tango started in the late 1990s at the milonga, and she subsequently learned Argentine folklore. In order to better understand body mechanics and to teach movement technique, Sara also became a Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor.  Ivan and Sara met in New York City and have dedicated themselves with passion and intensity to Argentine Tango. Trained primarily by Diego DiFalco, Pablo Pugliese and Natalia Hills, and also drawing from many other influences, such as Jorge Torres, Roberto Herrera, Guillermina Quiroga, Gabriel Misse, Carlitos Perez and Raul Bravo, together they are among the youngest and most recognized teachers and performers in the world of Argentine Tango.  As instructors, they have developed a modern systemic approach to teaching traditional tango.  Their goal as teachers is to instill strong fundamentals by emphasizing technique, analytical thinking, logic, naturalness and comfort in both the close and open embrace. Ivan and Sara encourage students to look for connection, quality of movement, creative expression and musicality to make their dance uniquely their own.After living for 7 years in United States and Argentina, Ivan and Sara are currently based in Europe, and in addition to being members of the prestigious company ‘Tangueros del Sur’ directed by Natalia Hills, they have recently performed with ‘Tangox2’ and ‘Miguel Zotto in Concert’ directed by Miguel Angel Zotto, ‘Obsesion Tango’ directed by Tamara Bisceglia, and ‘Compania Roberto Herrera’ directed by Roberto Herrera.  In addition to their theatre credentials, Ivan and Sara are festival and workshop favorites, and have participated, among others, at the Belgrade Tango Encuentro, Sultans Tango Festival in Istanbul, Perugia Tango Festival, and Puerto Rico International Tango Festival.Their latest project involves creating a curriculum for the online tango video instruction giant Tangomeet.  Ivan and Sara’s online teaching videos appeared in the spring of 2016.
