*This practical training, not in the least, has not any climes to be comprehensive presentation in the teaching of Tango Argentino! At once, included in the separate seminars - system, sequence, repeating and components are result from the unique and representative for LAOKOONTANGO style, as well as on our personal impressions for the necessary program-minimum in the process of mastering of Tango Argentino on the level of free and elegant dancing on milonga and satisfying of the deepest necessity of the receiver of training from attraction and setting free the personal fantasy!

Because of the complexity and the specificity of mastering of Tango Argentino in the worlds practices are perceived the trainings to be added with the so-called "Practica"**! It takes place once a week and it is a serious necessity in the process of mastering of the technology of dance!
 
**Practice session (Practica)
