Sanja Zalar Gostimirović
She’s been in a relationship with tango since 2009 when she experienced her first milonga (a social tango event). Fascinated by the diverse embraces and styles, the warm community, the meditative component, the aesthetics, the dance technique, and, last but not least, the spirit of tango, which deftly escapes words, she felt that she had met one of her greatest loves and immediately registered for the tango course.
Many courses, workshops, and years of work on her tango techniques later; she started teaching in 2014.
As a psychosomatic practitioner, consultant, and teacher, she holds space for a holistic experience (personal, that is, movement and music-cultural).
She experiences tango as a dialogical movement meditation.
He dances the tango since 2013. As a tango instructor, he brings relaxation and pedagogical experience in communication and leadership to the courses he has taught in the business world for more than ten years.
His attitude to tango is respectful, exploratory, and relaxed. He constantly explores a deep sense of connection in tango and enjoys exploring dance creativity and freshness.
For him, tango is a constant personal growth, where he seeks better contact with himself and his fellow dancer. With such an attitude, he wants to help you enrich and deepen your attitude towards tango and life, in general.
