Verónica Palacios is a rare Argentine professional tango dancer famous for her understanding and teaching of tango in its purest and richest form. She encourages men and women how to achieve balance in tango, center of gravity, key moments of reaction, from where we should be doing all the main movements, body articulation, musicality and foot reaction among others. They give us the opportunity to MOVE and COMMUNICATE with freedom and body awareness. Verónica teaches to make all the movements of the woman more sensual and elegant, activating points of our body that we do not even imagine using in the tango dance. At the same time, Verónica's classes help us find and express the best of ourselves through dance: freedom, creativity, complicity and a strong connection.
