Guest Teacher Profiles

Brigitta Winkler has been studying, exploring and living tango with passion for the last 30 years. She was one of the first Europeans to study Tango in Buenos Aires in the early 1980’s and in 1986 she opened one of the first tango studios in Berlin. She is one of the founding members TangoMujer, the first all-woman tango company that traveled the globe performing.

Today, Brigitta Winkler is a Tango legend– famous for being among the first who integrated training of body awareness and body work in her teaching concept, one of the first woman in tango to travel and teach internationally as well as being one of the first queer tango pioneers and early teacher of the last (at least) two generations of queer tango teachers and dancers.

She now lives and teaches in Berlin and New York, when she is not traveling around the world teaching and organizing women’s tango retreats.

We are so very honored that Brigitta returns to us for 4 special classes at Abrazo.
