Private lessons with David Phillips
David studies more than Argentine tango. He studies mind-body methods (such as NLP and Alexander Technique) that help produce understanding and results, and he studies best practices for teaching, coaching, and learning. He wants to help students understand Argentine tango, not merely dance it!
I like group classes because it motivates me to see how I compare with others, and I learn from both good and not as good examples. I like private lessons because I can focus on precisely what I want to accomplish and have personal attention.

“My approach is grounded in understanding fundamentals that produce Clear, Consistent, Comfortable, and Creative dancing. We can also work on all the figures you can imagine, always looking to make them successful on the social dance floor. Learn them not as figures to be memorized in one piece that rarely fits the music or the space as a whole, but as movement components that can be mixed and matched, where you can recognize how to fit pieces into different beginnings or endings.”
