Yuyu taught me how to become a better tango dancer. Not surprising, as that is what you would expect from even a mediocre tango teacher (at my level of dance). What was surprising was all that I learned that had nothing to do with tango (directly)! I left her classes a changed man! My energy was more grounded, my walk more balanced, my understanding of how we use our energy to interact with others more clear... all things I take with me into my daily life, and with noticeable effect, in my work, relationships, etc... She said to me "If you really learn tango, it will change your life". She was not kidding.
It was not Yuyu's intent to give me 'life' lessons. It seemed to come quite naturally to her as she 'read' my body and my energy and was able to hone in on where my problems with my dance come from... and it just so happens they parallel the problems I have in my life (go figure!).
After the first class she was able to 'read' me pretty well. "Your wings are bigger than your feet! If you are flying how can you be grounded? If you are not grounded, how can you have any stability? If you do not have stability, you will have no control and you will fall down. Come down to earth". "are we talking about tango still" I thought, because these words seemed to hit the nail on head when it came to my life.
Yuyu did not teach me 'steps'. According to her, if you connect with your body, your body will know how to move right way, and the steps kind of happen naturally. So we worked on exercises that would support my body to make those moves, but more importantly, the way I used, connected with, expressed myself though, my body. Where is my/her/our axis? how do I listen/transmit? Body language. Eye language. Finger tip language. what are my toes doing? "My Toes?? Really, are they that important?" She looked at me like I just killed my cat.
Maybe it is just a coincidence her name, Yuyu, means "magic" in Spanish, but she certainly did magic on me... and my tango has been transformed!
So, if you want to learn 'steps', she is not for you... but if you want to learn Tango, she's the one.
