2017 HK Intensive Tanguera Week with STELLA MISSÉ
Stella Missé is part of the famous Misse tango family with her siblings Andrea, Sebastian, and Gabriel, and a shining star in her own right. She began studying Argentine folk dance at the age of 5 and from the age of 7 began her studies in Argentine Tango with her siblings under Maria and Carlos Rivarola, Miguel Angel Zotto and Osvaldo Zotto. As a young girl she frequented the milongas with her family, where she danced and learnt with the great milongueros such as Osvaldo “Cachito” Mantegaza, Ernesto “Pupy” Castello, Pedro “Toto” Faraldo, amongst others. Since childhood she has given performances in the legendary dance halls alongside the greatest tango figures of the 80s and 90s.
From the age of 17, she began to work in tango shows in Buenos Aires such as La Cumparsita, Tango 1921, Museo Casa Carlos Gardel Tango and Tango x 2 by Miguel Angel Zotto. She participated in major festivals around the world to replace her sister Andrea Misse during her pregnancy in 2009, partnering with Javier Rodriguez. In 2010 she returned to Buenos Aires to join the cast of the tango show, “Senor Tango” until 2013. In recent years she gives private classes and performances mainly in Buenos Aires, while traveling around the world to spread her art.

Please feel free to walk-in the event. Thank you !
Is Stella teaching alone in Hong Kong?
Stella will be coming to HK alone and will be teaching the classes by herself with the assistance of Felipe and Sandra if needed. She has many years of experience teaching alone for both group and private classes in Buenos Aires to students of both genders.
The name of the program is Intensive Tanguera Weekend. Are the classes only for tangueras?
We named the program "Intensive Tanguera Weekend" not because the classes are only fit for tangueras. The idea of the program is to learn Tango from a woman's perspective as most workshops are usually conducted by the man with the assistance of his partner. Most of the classes offered are suitable for both men and women (with the exception of the Ladies technique class which is focused on footwork and adornos for ladies).
What levels are the classes for?
All 6 workshops and the guided practica are for dancers of all levels.
What are the topics for the three Solo Technique classes (T1, T2 & T2)?
The three technique classes are for all levels and are not progressive (meaning class 1 is not a prerequisite for class 2, and class 2 is not a prerequisite for class 3), nor are they arranged in levels of difficulty, although more basic topics will be covered in the earlier sessions, therefore it is highly recommended that you do take all three classes. These classes are for both men and women with in-depth explanation and intensive exercises on personal technique, covering topics such as posture, axis, dissociation and pivots, walking, ochos, giros, voleos and enrosques.
