PROGRAMS & COURSES–INTELLIGENT TANGO

INTELLIGENT TANGO

I wish I could dance and be relaxed, instead of having to think about the rules all the time, instead of growing nervous and hesitant overthinking of every step” G

For me things are simple, I want to feel happy, satisfied from my dances. And to get that I need to be in sync with my partner and the music and to be able to move effortlessly” S

If I had to use words to describe my ideal dance then those would be: giving in, mutual sharing, communicating, allowing my partner to express herself and easy” K

I love the dances that I find myself being in the moment and embodying the space” D

What I want to achieve in my every dance, is to feel grounded, energetic but not aggressive, solid but not stiff, able to listen to the  music and let it carry me in space feeling everything settling around me” J

Clear lines, perfect technique, impeccable posture, effortless balance and beautiful footwork. That is my ideal dance” C

Are you reading those quotes thinking: “Hey that is ME!” ?

If so, Intelligent Tango will not disappoint you!

Hi! I am Chrisa Assis founder of Bautanz.

Chrisa Assis Argentine Tango

Bautanz is in fact a construction company… The most fun construction company in the WORLD!

How modest of me…! ts ts ts haha
Think about it though, Bautanz takes people who love to Tango, to dance, to move, like you, and makes dancers!

And Intelligent Tango is the first well-rounded, smart Tango practice powerhouse, that is here to help you become the dancers you KNOW you can be.

Why I made Intelligent Tango?

For the past 5 years I would talk to my students, my Tango friends and generally people in Tango around the world and I would hear the same trouble, the same Tango pains and also the same wishes, dreams and hopes.

People would say things like:

One night in a milonga I heard 2 followers saying: *don’t dance with him, he is terrible!* I don’t want to be THAT guy”

I get so nervous when I am dancing, I feel that I am being judged by everyone around me, even my partner. My secret hope to get to a level that I don’t care any more. That I am feeling safe, confident and carefree”

On and off there are seconds of bliss, that everything is flowing and I can just let go. But then my mind starts racing to: is this right, is this wrong, how to step, what are my feet supposed to be doing, what do I look like, how should I look like…? And then it all falls apart.

“When it all works, it is magical. It feels like I can loose myself in it. So my question is how can optimize my movement to feel and look good in EVERY dance?”

“The feeling of becoming better just takes over me, it thrills me. I love the feeling of accomplishment. It makes me feel like I can do anything. I can become anyone”

I used to say every single one of the phrases.
No matter how many classes I took, no matter how many milongas I attended, no matter how many practicas I did even with a steady partner… NONE of it was enough. They worked for a bit and then I was stuck again.

It was only after I started my individual practice. Only after I started  focusing on the things I can control, on the the things I can change that I started to see results, to see real progress, to gain control over MY movement and to gain confidence, and true joy.

And then I asked myself: What would individual practice look like if it were easy?

Now lets be real here, practicing sucks… And practicing alone sucks even more! haha

How many times have said to yourself: “Starting tomorrow, I will be doing one of Chrisa’s free videos every day” and you have actually kept it up for more than a week straight?

And believe me I KNOW, you have many valid excuses, for example:

  1. Time restrictions
  2. No idea what and how to start practicing
  3. Not knowing if you are doing things right or wrong
  4. Having no steady partner
  5. Feeling guilty because this is just a hobby
  6. Having no motivation because there is no real incentive

So taking ALL these and many more into consideration, I thought to myself if individual practice were easy, it would be made of exercises that are:

  1. short, detailed and easily applicable
  2. on all Tango fundamentals instead of intricate steps/ concepts
  3. fun and spicy and
  4. that would get the Tango rules in my head and make them feel natural to the body

At the same time it would supported by:

  1. Ready made full practices ranging from 30secs to 2hours long
  2. Skype support call to get me started
  3. An online community so I can share with the teacher and other students my questions, thoughts and light bulb moments
  4. A step by step guide on how to get started and
  5. tools and tips on how to stay motivated

And THAT is exactly what Intelligent Tango is!

What is Intelligent Tango

INTELLIGENT TANGO is a series of 26 practice videos on all the fundamental elements of Tango:

  1. Posture
  2. Balance
  3. Walks &
  4. Ochos

I use EACH and EVERY one of the exercises for my daily practice. And 90% of them is exclusive content that I haven’t shared publicly.

What makes Intelligent Tango, intelligent though is that it doesn’t include only Tango drills, embellishments etc. but it brings in exercises from other activities such as every day type of walking yoga, fitness, ballet and more. Aiming to speed up your progress.

How does it speed up your progress?

Well firstly, it makes you realize that some of the rules of Tango you meet them in other activities too. THAT awareness in itself, can 10x your progress, since you will be going in your yoga class, for example, and you will be having Tango light bulb moments. Killing 2 birds with 1 stone.

Secondly, because often time we think so much of the rules that we loose every sense of how things are supposed to feeling. That is where we need to make a distinction between dance/ dance practice and exercise. And having an actual exercise to work with, instead of a Tango drill does the work perfectly

Thirdly, especially for those who have been into Tango for some time and are now feeling stuck, the good old Tango drills will do NOTHING for you, simply because there is no challenge there anymore. You know how to do them at a good enough level, and your mind goes on autopilot. You need therefore different ways to work on the same elements.

Fourthly, as Sebastian Arce has said: “You need to train your body for Tango. To be able to enjoy Tango more, your body needs to be stronger”

It is a powerful tool box of diverse, focused and fun Tango practice exercises to help you build a smart practice, that fits YOUR needs, shortens the frustration time and helps you become the dancer you know you can be!

This very system got some great results for my students

Christine

“Thank you so much! You have saved me from a lot of frustration and anguish! Thank you!”

Diana

“It was insightful and fun. You are a great teacher. Can’t wait to do it again!”

Linda

“It is amazing, not only because I can really practice without having a partner, but also because it gives me hope that despite my age I can still have good quality of movement, good quality of life

Dennis

“Hey (…) just wanted to give you some feedback on my trip down to BsAs… all of the teachers that taught me last year were very surprised at the jump in improvement from last year… What was more telling was Pedro, who saw me in december and said that there was a really big jump from december to march… i really believe that can be squarely attributed to your lessons…”(…) “thank you again… i tell you this, because it’s always nice to have good feedback, but also to confirm what you already know, you know your stuff.”

Corazon

“I love it. A good tool for everyday tango exercises. Thank you.”

Matevz

“I am one of those tango dancers, who do majority of tango training on their own, working upon the knowledge delivered by maestros on the privates, and who really desire to master dancing. Chrisa and her BauTanz help me immensely here.

She is flexible, goal-oriented and knowledgeable. And above all, she really does take time, listens and thinks things through. Which means a lot to me, so I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Yep

What should you expect practicing with Intelligent Tango

I’m going to be honest with you.
No one can ensure your success, other than you! And if someone promises great results in ZERO time, don’t trust them.

But if you trust the system, if you use the routines prepared for you, if you don’t  jump ahead and if you are consistent and smart with your practice, then this is what you should expect:

  • From day#1: You will be feeling different. In general. Possibly a bit relaxed, maybe more focused, and with your mind thinking: “Hm! this is different…” Keep exploring, experimenting and having fun with it.
  • First few milongas: They will suck..! I am being brutally honest here, you won’t be able to apply all the things you will learn to the milongas.  It is normal and only temporary.
    Be patient.

    Ego and thoughts like: “I have been practicing for 3 days now, shouldn’t I be feeling great?” are a loser’s recipe.
    Be patient and play the long game, it pays off!
  • Around 2 months time, you will be able to do longer practices, you will be feeling more grounded/ balanced, better connected to yourself, the music and your partners
  • Lastly during ALL this time, you will be getting 10x more out of your classes, privates, workshops, practicas because of all the detailed work you will be doing on your own.

You will see results. Real results, applicable on the dance floor.
Changes in your technique, the quality of your dance but also on your confidence.
You will find yourselves complaining less and appreciating your dances and milongas more.

It is not just that…

What I personally find extraordinary about Intelligent Tango is that it makes my brain practice in finding connections between different activities–fitness, yoga, swimming etc–and Tango. This leads to better movement overall!

And as Linda says: “{ you can gain} good quality of movement, good quality of life”.

BUT WHAT IF…?

Now I know there are some troubling questions here to be answered:

  • I don’t know…Is “intelligent tango” really for me?

    So let’s see who this is not for, as I would hate it for you to take the course and be disappointed.

    This is NOT for you, if:

    • You have never done Tango before.
      Unfortunately, this course will not teach you Tango, it can only make you better once you get started. So start with group or private classes and we will be here for you when you want to get better, faster
    • You want to learn more sequences
      This is not a course that builds on sequencing. It is a course focusing on helping you feel more free and creative while dancing, through mastering the fundamentals. Of course, when you start feeling more confident, you will be able to improvise more BUT you will not learn new sequences with Intelligent Tango.
    • You want to compete
      If you wish to be the next Mundial champion this course and any online course can only have a great supportive role. What you need is private classes with an experienced coach or former champion

If you are someone who wants to enjoy the milongas more, who wants to feel free and confident, to be creative on the dance floor, then this is a course for you, no matter what level you are at!

  • Is this a course follower or leader focused

This course is for both leaders and followers. How you create movement has nothing to do with your role in the dance. How you interpret movement or how you express yourself might have something to do with your role in the dance but how you create movement is the same for leaders and followers.
You are the leader of your own body and therefore you are responsible for your movement not your partner.

  • I am really too busy at the moment

The greatest part is that you have lifetime access to Intelligent Tango
It is not going away but it’s price is going up. So financially, it is best to make your move now.

On a more psychological level, this course might actually be your chance to get your life back. We encourage our students to start small, really small with their practice, and specifically with a 30sec Tango routine, and 5min focused practices. We ALL have 5mins and you deserve to have 5mins on something you love…
Think about what Tony Robbins says: “If you don’t have 5mins you don’t have a life”

  • Bad timing…I have more important things I should be taking care of.

I know! But taking care of yourself is one of those important things. I am sure you are working hard enough to be able to grant yourself 5mins of “me time”, of “tango time” without feeling guilty about it . And don’t forget you have lifetime access

  • Can’t I just do this on my own..?

Of course you can! I did it, so you can too.
Have in mind though that it took me 8 years to get here despite/ thanks to my dance background. Plus, the resources that I had from working in dance schools and gyms, where with minimal or no-fee I could access equipment and all types of classes. So you do the math of how long it might take you, and how much it is going to cost. I can’t calculate that for you, I can only share my experience.

  • I have tried other online courses and they haven’t worked for me… How is “Intelligent Tango” different and how do I know it is going to work?

One thing that will put you at ease is that this course comes with 100% 60-day money back guarantee.
This means that you can try the whole course before you even decide if it is good for you.
There are 2 more things that make Intelligent Tango special:

  • I have selected, the best, exercises from MY practice. There is not one exercise in there that I don’t personally do. So I know that these exercises can give you great results in a measurable amount of time, because I do them..!
  • It aims on making the practice, a habit, a behavior, an experience to look forward to and not just another thing you HAVE TO do. You can be really experimental with your practice, even build a practice on your own. The guides provide you with all the tips to do that properly. Or you can use per-structured practices that are also provided for you.
  • I am not really fit, will I be able to do the exercises?

    There is no reason to worry about that, there are variations offered for all levels of fitness and comfort. So you can choose the variation that feels safer and then you can build your way up.

  • Am I too old for this?

We need to define what “too old” means here. If you can still dance Tango you can surely do the Tango part of the course, which includes posture, balance, walks, ochos, embellishments, enrosques and embrace focused exercises.

Regarding the fitness/ yoga part, I have used the same exercises for 70year olds in my fitness classes. In the first few classes, they thought I was crazy…haha…They complained a lot, they were scared and insecure.
1 year later they are way above these exercises. They are doing intervals and applauding themselves at the end!
So, yes, some of these might be difficult in the beginning but they are doable.
Also, in the guide on how to choose the right exercise and variation, you will find variations for chronic pain and other trouble you might be having, and tips on how to proceed with safety.

This is, also one of the reasons I am providing the skype call, so we can talk about all these things.
Lastly, get in the program, take the exercises to your doctor, and if they say you should be avoiding them by all means…NO WORRIES.. there is money back guarantee!

  • But don’t I really need a partner to practice..?

You need to practice with and without a partner. You are responsible for the quality of your movement, not your partner. To have a good dance, YOU need to be a good dancer first and that is where individual work comes in play.
Plus, especially if you don’t have a partner and you want to get one, who is in fact good, then you need to have something to offer. Start practicing now to be able to suggest a partnership and add value to it.

  • How do I know if I am doing things right?

Well I would be very surprised if you did everything right. I do this every day and some days just suck! haha
Now, the great thing about the program is that it comes with a Facebook private community. When you get stuck, or you are unsure you write a post or make a video and there you go, you won’t only get my opinion but other people’s opinions too.
Plus if you are really feeling stuck, you can always book a Tango breakthrough coaching call with myself through Skype.

  • I really need to get good REALLY fast, would this work?

No, it will not! And I would suggest that you don’t join Intelligent Tango because it will create more frustration to you and to everybody else in this group. You have a very different goal and you are looking for shortcuts. But there are no shortcuts to getting good in Tango, like there are no shortcuts to getting fit, so no matter, how good a program is, it will always be a disappointment to you, because of your mindset.

  • I am not motivated enough

There is a big misconception and huge problem around motivation.

  1. We believe that some people are just born motivated, as if it is a gene or something.
  2. People rely on external factors to get motivated… like how many dances they get. If they dance with the “good” dancers. Whether they can do all of Pablo Veron’s ganchos or simply what other people think

These things though don’t matter, because they prove nothing and they only weigh you down!

Motivation comes from results. You start doing, you get results and you want to do more.
Do you want to have great experiences on the dance floor, or do you just want to go the milonga, have a mediocre night, complain about everything and everyone and then go home and get ready to repeat that the next weekend?

Start doing, be patient and motivation will come along with results, pleasure, and beautiful dances.

  • Does this course include musicality

This course doesn’t include musicality drills per say BUT it targets the most troubling aspect of musicality, feeling the music.

This goes beyond finding the beat, or doing fancy steps on the music.
It is more on finding the rhythm your body follows aka your breath, learn to listen to that and then match that to the music flow.

Plus after you get more secure with the technical aspects of Balance and posture and walks and ochos you WILL be able to listen to the music a lot more.

So if you can’t find the beat, THIS is a great way to start and if you want to master musicality THIS is a great way to boost your awareness and allow yourself to listen deeper.

  • Is this for beginners?

Absolutely, positively YES!

Not only you will be enjoying your dances sooner. Not only you will save on time and money in the long run. BUT ALSO, you will avoid the mistakes 90% of social dancers make that turn them into robots on the dance floor

There can be a million questions troubling you, a lot of uncertainty and insecurity, all that is expected and reasonable.

BUT if you are fed up with feeling rejected, ignored, stagnant, frustrated and you want a chance to enjoy your nights in the milongas, to take your milonga and class experience to the next level; if you want to feel creative, free to improvise with ease and have more connected enjoyable dances with your partners, then I Intelligent Tango will NOT disappoint you!

Give yourself the chance to be the dancer you know you can be!
