Special class (all levels) with Helen La Vikinga.
Helen "La Vikinga" has been teaching tango since 1992 in Sweden, and since 2005 in Buenos Aires. Helen works with the Argentinian tango as a dance, as an expression, but most of all as a communication and as a connection to the other, both in the leader and in the follower role. Helen teaches from traditional tango to "queer" tango and everything in between. The most important is to be able to communicate to the other and enjoy the TANGO!
She started early to dance both roles in the tango and became well known as La Vikinga at the traditional milongas in Buenos Aires for dancing the 'man´s" role. Helen has been organizing in Sweden, the milonga Libertango and in Buenos Aires the milongas La Vikinga (one of the first alternative milongas in Bs As), Italia Unita, Bien Pulenta and Mano a Mano (open minded traditional milonga). In her own tango school, Escuela La Vikinga, she teaches both group and private tango & milonga lessons alone or with Javier Guiraldi.Beside dancing and organizing tango Helen designs and produces La Vikinga Shoes and Sneakers.
