    They are every bit as good as teachers, as they are dancers. They were at the Boston Tango Festival, and we were so impressed by their workshops that my wife and I took a private from them. It was very helpful.

    I'm amazed when Argentines can be more clear with their instruction (in English) than some American teachers seem to be. They are nice people, and seemed genuinely interested in helping people improve.

    I 2nd that. In A workshop in NYC they also showed how to do the same figures in a more open and a more close embrace, with the lady adding more or less energy to the leaders impetus to create a larger or smaller motion

    One of the, if not the, best I've seen for that type of tango. Thanks.

    Aw. :) I am happy to see such positive response here about Miriam and Leonardo. Miriam is my "idol" when I think about good stage fantasia. Everything is so crisp and connected. There is none of this tricks framed by bad tango, or routine so obviously run through with no connection what-so-ever. Good stuff. :)

    Cool, I just finally noticed this thread. I took some group classes from them near where I live. They have a studio called Celebrations in Tustin. They do a great job with their students.

    This happens often for me - Argentine teachers apologize for their bad English, then go on to describe posture with all the complex English words for anatomy and body mechanics. Your English is better than mine, don't apologize!

    Not all of them. I once tried to attend a class in Paris by an old argentine who now lives here and beforehand lived and taught in the USA for years. It was a terrible mix of 20% french and 80% english. And a bad english with that. He would say "vurd" for world. You had to translate from english to english.
    I so wished he just spoke castillano.

    Btw the video link is dead and searching Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo - SYTYCD brings tons of YT pages.
