Expectations blown out of the water.

I enjoyed the Bootcamp very much and have been able to retain and bring much of the information and concepts back to home - something I cannot say about many of the workshops I have attended in the past. The coding system you created is clever and useful for the creative dancer. It is taking some time for me to embed the terminology into my little grey cells, but that process is moving along...It was a great experience and an afternoon well spent.

Love the idea of finding the common denonimator of tango moves
— Charla, Austin
It was truly inspiring and mind-blowing!! The concept of breaking down tango into the component parts this way is beautiful and fascinating and, frankly, both a fun and an effective way to explore! Much gratitude for bringing it!

Wealth of information, many thumbs up about it. Tango lexicon is genius. I can see how it can help.

"A wonderfully productive, interesting bootcamp! I had a bit of skepticism when the first terms were introduced. "You're going to have us invent and learn new terms for tango moves as a way to make creative explorations easier?!?!" But of course it wasn't so much about the terms themselves as it was the way of thinking about tango in a well structured way that supports either a highly organized or a totally randomized - or both - way of creating and testing tango possibilities. And even though David said this was only about creating or analyzing figures, that exploration -- "What works well?" "Is this possible?" "What must we change to make that work?" -- all played nicely into partner connection, geometry, lead/follow/follow, what fits different sorts of music well, "so THIS is what makes that figure work!", and on and on. I enjoyed how you just assumed that everyone would both lead and follow in the work, and they did. I also appreciated the "stick partner". It was good to see people volunteering for it and making good use of it without waiting for an odd dancer out. Congratulations on developing this system of tango thinking and exploration. I think you've made a significant contribution to the art form."

"I had an amazing experience! The lexicon has given me some ideas about how to share tango with other beginners in digestible chunks. The work was challenging, and the amount of time we had was perfect - it kept us moving forward and challenged, but still allowed us to process the material."

"The lexicon workshop was fabulous."

I got a real fundamental understanding of Tango...that knowledge freed me, gave me a kind of permission to pursue new combinations and not just the regular suspects.

It was a great course, it was hard but I got a lot out of it, even more than I expected to. It was the kind of course I always wanted to take to help understand the fundamental structure of Tango with all its complexity, variation and beauty.

It expanded my tango horizons by giving the structure for improvisation and trying out/learning/conceptualizing old and new things.

I think this class attracted some serious serial learners, everyone was really committed to figuring this stuff out. I’m really happy with the results of the class. Overall I feel like I have more understanding of the available movements while dancing, and have new and different ways to explore movement.
— Ali G., Los Angeles
It was a great experience overall. I appreciated the lexicon and tango terminology that was outlined in the course. It had given me a clearer understanding about the freedom of movement and symmetry in tango. It was pretty fierce and challenging at the same time.
