Alberto Dassieu in Europe

Alberto Dassieu's website:

Our friend and teacher Alberto Dassieu will be teaching in Switzerland in May. If you are going be around that area during that time, don't miss his classes!

Alberto had a very serious health scare last year, but thankfully he has recovered and recommenced teaching. We always treasure the time we spend with him and his wife and partner Paulina each year, and this past March was no exception.

We exchanged emails last week and Alberto and Paulina told us that they were very happy with our progress and enjoyed the videos we made of our class this year. Alberto requested that we put the videos up on Youtube so that he could post them on his website. Here's a review video of the vals section of his class. The vals is "La Tapera" by Edgardo Donato - Alberto also performs to this vals with Paulina:

We are gradually uploading other videos of Tango and Milonga.

We've recommended Alberto's classes to all our friends - and those who have taken his classes know that he is one of the best teachers and dancers of his generation. In fact, we took his class this year along with our best tango friend - she's the one who is coughing and talking in the background of some of the videos! She has confirmed that dancing and learning from Alberto was one of the most amazing tango experiences she's ever had - and she too, like us, have made lifelong friends in Alberto and Paulina.

Thank you again, Alberto and Paulina - and we wish you every success in your tour of Switzerland!
