A true tanguero, Sebastian Arrua was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His journey in dance began early in life, performing and competing with local dance troupes starting at the age of eight. He reached the finals in several disciplines of Argentine folk dances at the prestigious tournament “Torneos Juveniles Bonaerenses”. In 2003, Sebastian graduated from the prestigious “Escuela Nacional de Danzas de Buenos Aires" with a national dance teaching qualification.
Sebastian has performed in some of the most prestigious theaters of Argentina, including the Teatro Colón. He has spent much of his career touring and teaching around the world, including in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Italy, Slovenia, Canada, Brazil, Iceland, Austria, Spain and the United States.
His personal style of dancing is based on salon technique, but influenced by a rich variety of sources. Sebastian believes the most important aspect of Tango is the dialogue and the deep connection between the couple, expressed with elegance and fluidity. As a teacher, he focuses on the mechanics of movement as a way to facilitate that connection.
For Sebastian, tango is an incredible world that expresses a culture and a way of being, which he strives to share with his students. Enabling them to express themselves in their own dance, deepening their understanding and experience of Tango.
Be a part of BA. Tango Evolution with this online workshop for a taste of the technical training in our intensive tango program, with maestro Sebastian Arrua from Buenos Aires. This special online workshop covering tango technique, for both leaders and followers, will develop a fluid process of learning where basic concepts turn into creative movements. The goal is to improve the most important points of the technique to later be used in different moments of the improvisation. We take our dance to the next level when we can combine a higher level of technique with a clear understanding of the improvisation.
The workshop will cover technique for:
What does it mean to push the floor?
Combination of dynamics
Dissociation on axis and dynamically
Pivots with control
Planeos with dissociation
We look forward to seeing past BA. Tango Evolution participants, those interested in our programs, and anyone who wants to participate in this workshop! Focus will be on individual technique training, no partner necessary, all levels of experience welcome.
