Meet Detlef & Melina
Melina Sedó & Detlef Engel are amongst the most influential teachers of close-embrace Argentine Tango in Europe. Detlef and Melina started teaching tango in 2001. They live in Saarbruecken (Germany) in direct vicinity to France and Luxembourg, but have mostly been traveling since 2006. Their dedication, professionalism and unique teaching concept have set standards wherever they visit.
For Melina & Detlef’s the highest value in the dance is in the embrace, the connection between partners. They emphasize a style of dancing that is both close and creative in its simplicity.
Since their last visit to Boise in 2010, they have elaborated their teaching methods, published a comprehensive book + DVD, and developed a tango teacher-training that is followed by dancers from all over Europe and the USA. This will be Melina & Detlef's last visit to the US for quite a while, so do not miss this opportunity to learn from them!
