This is my private tuition e-tango setup. And this is fascinating.
Adapt, adapt is the key word – I’ve started to give e-private tuition at the beginning of March 2020, to some students in the U.K. and abroad. At first it felt odd – at the beginning of the year, I wouldn’t have thought giving online private tuition would have any appeal. But, being forced to stay apart, brought a few surprises with e-tango.
First, I found every student to be so attentive and focus on the details, willing to repeat a move several times to make it perfect – in contrast with, in a person-to-person context, they preferred to do it just a few times and quickly come back to the pleasure of dancing.
Some also told me it was surprisingly interesting (they thought it would be less exciting than in embrace), and gave them the homework they needed as they faced isolation or quarantine. A few already took from these lessons their lunch tango training.
And this is what perhaps astounded me the most – the fact online private tuition often feels more intense than dancing in a face to face environment. My students told me they felt they had a true workout in the end. Perhaps, because things get so precise, they need to have a high level of concentration. The result is astonishing- in many cases, the learning is not less but at least equal compared to a face to face context. Also because I need to prepare more solo exercises, the student goes away with things they can practice over and over until they feel perfect.
Of course something is different – since there is no actual […]
