For many people tango is just a dance. But in reality tango is a whole culture; it is the character of the people, the music, the lyrics, the way we dress, the way we talk, the way we greet each other by hugging, our life stories, our codes, our language, the feminine, the masculine and all our feelings which we express through dancing. This is why learning tango is not about just getting the technique, and this is why tango always evolves into more and more levels for everyone. This is why most of us choose it as a lifetime experience that we can never get bored of, as tango is infinite.

Although the term “tango milonguero” is relatively new (before it was just simply called tango) it is the way it looked in it’s beginning. I choose to teach the milonguero style because i consider it the original argentine tango, the base of all other tango styles and a reflection of my culture and my character. The milonguero tango is the social dance that people dance in the milongas. It is, first of all, danced in a close embrace, and it pays attention more than anything to the embrace, the connection, the partner, the music and the other couples dancing around. That means it is not about big elaborate movements, ganchos, high boleos, lifts and other movements that would require a lot of space and are more suited to show dance.  It is about the connection with the partner, the music, and by respecting the other couples dancing around you and by not kicking them by mistake or bumping into them, with the connection to everyone else.  The traditional milonguero style has elaborate movements of its own, that can be very complex, intricate structures within the close embrace.

Alejandro Gée


I was born in Argentina and grew up in a tango family where my involvement in the tango culture began at a very early age. My grandfather Francisco Gée was a milonguero and musician, who danced and played in his own orchestra until he died at age ninety.

I am a psychotherapist by profession. Trained in the U.S., I hold two degrees in clinical psychology from the University of Washington and Seattle University. I did extensive research on tango therapy, where I explored the effect of tango-dancing on people’s moods and the experience of dancing tango. I had worked as a clinician for institutions in the U.S. and love to apply my clinical knowledge and experience to my tango instruction, which I have found to be very useful in helping my students achieve the desired results.

I was born in the north of Transylvania in Romania, studied violin as a child and then foreign languages. After University, where I studied English and French, I started to work in advertising and cinema, organizing film shoots. I started as an assistant and worked my way up to producer, but then one day I decided to take a sabbatical and come to Argentina to take tango lessons. I’ve always danced something, but I used to think it can only be a hobby. Nearly a decade later I am still here sharing and intensely enjoying the teaching experience with Alejandro and our students, many of whom have become my friends. I speak 6 languages, I am a photographer and a Positive Intelligence Coach.


Each person has a different body, different emotional, physical coordination level. Each individual relates differently to the experience of tango: some people are more open, some less, some are more critical, some more brave and curious, some choose to understand with the mind, some chose to feel with the body. So it gives me great satisfaction after each class to see the evolution that some of them might even not be aware of.


Tango in itself has a great therapeutical effect for anybody who gets into it. It is a very strong experience for every single person, as it brings up a lot of emotional and physical issues. The most elementary effect of it is that before anything, it cultivates awareness. The posture of a person is not just a position that we are supposed to stand/dance in, but also a reflection of who we are.


The way we connect or the way we lead or follow are also a perfect reflection of our social, emotional and mental status. This is why tango has the capacity to heal issues that we are or not aware of. By fixing the physical, the mind and emotions will follow. Or we will want to heal the mind and the emotions in order to be able to improve our dancing.


First and foremost, our main concept is supporting you, through Tango dance, in building the best quality of life you can achieve.


In my practice I encourage people to expand, to be creative, to do the things they want to do, and to live without fears or limitations. I believe everyone has the full capacity to grow, to expand and to do anything you may want in your life.  People are different but we all have the desire and capacity to live a fulfilled life.


Creating a safe space where people can feel secure and open and to have fun in the process is essential in coaching and therapy. I put a lot of emphasis on making you feel comfortable in your journey and leave room for flexibility. At the same time I encourage you to take charge of your life, to learn new tools, to build resilience, and to reach out for your goals. I use a positive approach, focusing on the strength of the person and not so much on the weaknesses or problems. I like to use as many theories and tools as I can learn and I find useful in my practice.
