Bulent and Lina are well known for their innovative and improvisational approach to Argentine Tango as well their elegance and fine sense of musicality.
As teachers they stress the importance of understanding the structural foundation of tango as well as good connection, musicality and techniques that are essential to become an excellent dancer. They also emphasize the ability of leaders and followers to improvise, create and explore, and the dance partners are then able to have the freedom to develop their own style and musicality.
Bulent and Lina like to encourage their students to experiment and to have fun. The dance becomes more than just figures and sequences, it is a personal expression and creative interpretation of music, where partners communicate, improvise and grow into the masters of their own style.
