I become a different person on the dance floor, and that person is really out there. I'm not a mum, I'm not a wife, I'm not a grandma, I'm a dancer!
~ Suzee Freeman (2017 & 2018 participant)
It's amazing to work with such talented dancers. I think that's very special because they care a lot. You know that everything you are trying to work on is for you.
~ Gregory Trigub (2018 & 2019 participant)
...very specific targeted feedback that you then had to practice, and they would go, yes, you've got that right!
~ Robyn McWilliams (2018 participant)
If I can do this every day, I'll be like a champion by the end of the year.
~ Amie Dupuy (2018 participant)
When you capture the heart of tango you don't worry about the steps...when you go to dance it's the heart... An essential element of this particular program is trying to capture that heart, the heart of tango.

That should be a byline of BA. Tango Evolution:
"You just learn faster."
~ Andrew McLachlan (2017 & 2018 participant)
Best program ever. Nothing like it. If you want to seriously improve your tango substantially and effectively, this is the way to do it.
~ Monica Gomez (2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 participant)
Such a great way to maximise your learning and dancing experience in Buenos Aires. I highly recommend it and plan to return again next year!
~ Juliette Fox (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 participant)
I would recommend this program for anybody who is serious about digging deeper into tango. Since the instruction is personalized, your level of experience or skill doesn't matter. They will take you for what you are, support and encourage you, and help you get closer to whatever it is that drew you to tango in the first place!
~ Randall Cook (2018 participant)
Consider this an investment programme to better dancing skills. Well structured, intensive, individualised with a focus on building blocks. So whether a beginner or seasoned dancer, there is always something to be learnt. Practice makes perfect. Thanks Mira and Sebastian. Till the next time!
~ Joy Sa (2017, 2018 & 2019 participant)
No words to truly share how blessed I feel and how much this magical experience has captured my heart. Tango you are forever engraved on my soul. Mira and Seba work tirelessly to bring together a truly exceptional and affirming experience. The BA. Tango Evolution course came together in such a synchronous and harmonious way that I believe everyone found a little piece of themselves that they didn't know they were searching for. The environment that was created was so unique and special, people were able to release their inhibitions and truly be themselves. A massive thank you to both of you for creating such a wonderful experience, and to all the teachers for sharing their incredible knowledge, advice, time, and personalities with us. And I would highly recommend BA. Tango Evolution to anyone looking for affirmation, guidance, and FUN in Tango !
~ Carole Lacroix (2018 & 2019 participant)
This program is great for tango students of any level. You get over 3 hours each day with professional tango teachers/performers, in the birthplace of tango, focusing on whatever facets of this dance that you like: basic movement skills, the embrace, technique, improvisation, musicality, but most importantly, the essence of dancing together, rather than just leading or following. In the evenings, you get to attend a variety of tango events in the city to practice and enjoy your new skills. In addition, you can, and should, book private time with your favorite instructors, because an opportunity like this is not to be missed! Each program also includes a shopping day for shoes and/or clothes, and a sightseeing day, as well as other special events.
~ Nik Gervae (2018 participant)
I had a truly wonderful time. I would recommend this programme to anyone with a love of tango and music, whatever their experience of learning. It was fantastically organized so that participants were able to immerse themselves in the process of moving forward in their tango journey. Mira and Sebastian were constantly available to give practical and emotional support whenever needed and held a wonderful group energy for the duration of the programme. Can’t wait till next year.
~ Barbara Harrington (2019 participant)
I recommend the program to every dancer as it caters for all levels through its individualized approach, which is supported by the high spirit of the professional team and their infectious smiles and enthusiasm for tango!
~ Rosmarie Erben (2019 participant)
I was impressed by the program organisation and content. I came away with a deeper understanding of tango music and the importance of the connection through the tango embrace. I would recommend this program to any one wanting a deeper learning experience of tango music and dance form and culture.
~ Lauri Andriske (2019 participant)
The opportunity to have effectively a series of 10 minute private lessons with competent teachers one after another after another is a unique and valuable learning experience. Sebastian structures his teaching by concepts and not generally as a sequence of steps. This makes the course suitable for all levels of dancer. Highly recommended if you are serious about evolving your tango.
~ Matthew Civil (2018 participant)
I heard a lot of good comments about BA Tango Evolution before coming onto the trip. But my experience has far exceeded my expectation. The entire programs is well thought out and perfectly structured. Both Sebastian and Mira were highly professional and super friendly hosts who made the entire experience in Buenos Aires very enjoyable. The highlights of the program for me are the insightful teaching by Sebastian and dancing with the highly professional assistant teachers during classes and practicas. The individualised teaching/practising benefits participants of all dance levels. I highly recommend this unique and valuable learning experience to anyone who is looking to evolve their tango whatever their level might be. I will certainly come back myself!!!
~ Wendy Dear (2018 participant)
I found BA. Tango Evolution so valuable due to the amount of time we got to dance with professional dancers in structured prácticas. The program is also such a nice soft landing to the craziness of B.A. milongas - you could easily get lost here and go to all the wrong places - it has been so nice to have guidance and go together as a group. Sebastian and Mira were very attentive regarding all aspects of the trip, and helped me experience tango in B.A. in such a welcoming and accessible way, my dancing has improved so much and I look forward to attending again next year! I highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to experience tango in B.A. and would like to improve their dancing in short amount of time.
~ Shira Yaziv (2016, 2017 & 2019 participant)
I was a participant in Sebastian and Mira's Buenos Aires Experience in March 2015, which I heartily recommend to anyone who is serious about the tango and wants to pack as much value into their Buenos Aires time as possible. Sebastian and Mira were charming and professional hosts who made Buenos Aires as easy as possible so that our group could concentrate on things that matter. We were treated to a wide variety of milongas and musical experiences, plus selected classes with recognised masters and practice sessions with professional dancers. As a result I not only had a full-on tango experience but obtained a very noticeable improvement in my skills, as did the other group members.
~ Mark Sidebotham (2015 & 2017 participant)
I recommend BA. Tango Evolution highly to anyone looking for a way to elevate their dancing. Especially if you've tried many workshops and immersions and still haven't had the breakthrough you'd hoped for. This very personalised intensive style of teaching with extremely high caliber assistant teachers is unlike anything I've heard of before. It has to be experienced. Also the care given to all participants from the moment of arrival is special. Buenos Aries is made accessible to everyone with all details and needs taken care of in a luxurious hotel with a family feel. Thank you Sebastian and Mira. I'll be back.
~ Susan Callan (2017 participant)
This trip is not cheap, but if you want to make the most of your time in Buenos Aires, it is a great investment. Being part of a group is very supportive. The professional assistants and teachers are invaluable for giving us different perspectives and ideas on how we can develop our dance. Would definitely do this again if I have the money.
~ Shelley Ashley (2017 participant)
BA. Tango Evolution was a perfect way to get a concentrated dose of Buenos Aires in one hit. Mira & Sebastian both made sure we got the most out of our time there, from arranging masterclasses, regular practices with professional dancers, and escorting us to milongas, doing everything possible to ensure that we had a happy trip. I have many fond memories: chatting in the courtyard, wonderful live orchestras and medialunas at La Viruta at dawn. The trip gave me an extra push to improve my tango, and I'm still exploring the things that I learned there.
~ Iain Fyfe (2016 participant)
Thank you so very much for making my first stay in Buenos Aires absolutely wonderful in every way! You two are such genuine and amazing young people whose personalities and sincerity provided so much warmth and Buena Onda to our tango and overall experience of B.A. every day and night. It’s a great pleasure to know you and to have spent those unforgettably beautiful three weeks with you in B.A.
~ Zlata Sajdl (2016 participant)
Thank you very much Mira and Sebastian. It's truly a holiday I will never forget. It turned my life upside down and was such a far cry from life back home. But very special to experience tango in Buenos Aires with the support and fun of the group. Thank you both so much.
