style as a follower is powerful, sensual, musical, with elegant
footwork and ornaments."
“I've been really excited about AnaLinda's
classes because of her teaching style.She has a lot of energy and
passion for dance, and really cares about her students' progress.
She has that combination of ruthlessness and kindness that makes
for a good teacher. I like her emphasis on understanding the elements
of the dance and the logic of putting them together with a sense
of musicality, rather than merely mechanically memorizing step patterns.
She teaches dance from the inside out. Also I like that she takes
the time to emphasize connection, taking care of your dance partner,
dance etiquette and building community. There is a good energy about
her class and she seems to attract dedicated and sensitive people.”
"I have seen the work of a lot of Tango teachers
since I became passionate about the dance. But AnaLinda's teachings
of Tango embellishments and woman's footwork outreaches the work
of even Argentinian teachers I have met. Tango was made for her
and the love she puts in teaching it is reflected in her students
persistance in wanting to be better. She is extremely giving of
her time, attention and feedback to her student. At first, I did
not know she was a teacher. I approached to ask where she had learned
her sense of style and musicality. And I was lucky to find out that
she has extraordinary talent to teach to others the elegance and
beauty that she brings to Tango."
This is just a quick note to let you know that our first dance at
our wedding was a phenomenal success. The Argentine Tango blew away
our guests and we got a standing ovation! You were right - all the
lessons and the practice were worth it. My husband and I wanted
to thank you so much for teaching us to Tango. You were a great
instructor and we really appreciated your techniques, your words
of encouragement and, most importantly, your patience. We are looking
forward to continuing to learng this beautiful dance from you.
"I’ve been profiting from AnaLinda’s
teaching incredibly. Her basic approach to teaching is to impart
a profound understanding of the art of the Argentine Tango. She
knows perfectly how to address her knowledge to the students at
their level of experience but at the same time offers a whole lot
more in her passionate personality. Her beautiful variety of skills
inspire the students to explore this great sophisticated dance.
Her teaching is something to just experience...!"
“Gabrielle and I think you are a great teacher!
We enjoyed yesterday's class so much. At one glance you see what
is missing and what can be improved on our dancing. What
we particularly appreciate is your passion about Tango, your fun
about dancing spills over to us. This is finally our greatest motivation
I will always remember your dancing technique, musicality, expression
(&) style. This is what keeps me surfing through the clouds
of bad teaching, lack of inspiration and sleepy tango rythms.. Hopefully,
at the end of the tunnel I will be back in Boston and taking as
many classes with you as possible...
from a new student: "As a woman, Linda knows
what I feel like inside my body and conveys so well the feel of
the dance. Sometimes when I’m dancing I hear her voice telling
me to have a beautiful extension in my leg. She gave me the word
“delicious” – at the milonga, if I have one “delicious”
dance per night, I am happy."
