Is a rigorous, soulful method for learning the Argentine Tango. Students of the technique are given solid foundations that include the basics: walking, timing, and feeling, as well as advanced techniques of storytelling through dance. These essentials provide a framework for improvisation and spontaneity. Steps are not taught, however, as students’ progress to the intermediate stage they will have acquired tools that allow them to dance and create dynamic combinations with ease, grace and beauty. The technique also provides instruction in the Tango Vals (Waltz) and the Kizomba (a rhythmic form of partner dancing) Mr. Sighe, a native of Cameroon West Africa, is director and former owner of the Tango Magdalena Dance Studio in Oakland, California. He has worked with hundreds of students privately and in group format.
My passion for physical therapy began in 2002 when I worked as an assistant at a clinic where I led rehabilitation exercise, applied therapy, electrical stimulation, ultra sound traction and other rehabilitative techniques. After receiving my professional certification in 2003, I have committed to Bodywork and Massage as a way to provide a safe place for my clients to receive relief from stress, and muscular tension. A place to heal. I understand the incredible long term, and short term benefits of massage, and I work with each person to customize a highly effective treatment program. I look forward to working with you.
