"Helaine, I took to heart your emphasis on the importance of minding our Infinite Axes. It's my mantra now... As a result, I feel I have better balance, I am more relaxed while dancing, enabling me to focus on the music and connection, and my tango moves are more articulated than before. I do receive compliments about my dancing, which gives me an infinite joy. And it really seems that ladies are more enthusiastic than before about accepting my invitation to dance! So, thank you once again!"
Roy Horan, Arkansas, US
"At a practica last night, received outstanding feedback. One follower told me I have improved dramatically, another said 'lots of passion' & my wife said 'best dance ever!' Things are working." Two months later: "Confidence: your program has helped me become bolder on asking followers that appear much more advanced than I - a good embrace has really helped - the art of the pause has really wow'd many followers when I dance with them......there are not a lot of tangueros that use pauses in the communities I dance in - this is HUGE."
Ulrich K., Germany
"Although I had been dancing tango intensively for more than three years I still felt a little uncertain and unsteady on the dance floor. The fact that this communicated to my dancing partners made things worse. Helaine's program was a complete and amazing turn for the better! Within two months my whole approach to tango changed, I gained more stability and presence, felt way more comfortable and at ease. The transformation was immediately noticed by my dancing partners and brought me compliments and a far bigger choice of tangueras who obviously enjoy dancing with me. Helaine's coaching brings ideas and concepts that will hardly ever be taught in regular dance classes and puts them in a very clear way. Highly recommended..."

"Before I started working with Helaine I felt lost in the sea of instructions and couldn't really advance. I had a feeling that confidence in tango is something that happens only after years and years of practice. Her online modules made a huge impact on my understanding of tango and its important elements so I could finally start making progress . . . Overall her program skyrocketed my pleasure in dancing, balance, autonomy and confidence by giving me a foundation of knowledge, core concepts, excellent visceral explanations, clear structure of tango, easy yet profoundly efficient exercises that advanced my pleasure in dancing to a very high degree. "
Gary Alexander, England
"This is great stuff, and just what I need. Some of it I do already, and some is new, but these exercises help me become much more precise . . . Here they are all blown away that we can have such good results from an online course!"

"Helaine is a game changer who put together a program specific to my needs, coaching me to not only become a better dancer, but fed my hunger to learn more about the culture that surrounds the dance. As a result, Argentine tango is now part of my DNA. That is a gift. The combination of accelerated coaching in the studio with milonga experiences offered a whirlwind of dancing peppered with cultural insights exemplified in her tips and writing. As a result, I have choices and a repertoire based on grounded instruction and attitude that now define my dance, all thanks to Helaine. Highly recommended to anyone seeking to learn tango beyond figures, aspiring to be a true tanguero and all it embraces. Helaine has the key to open that door."
Cornel Durlut, Romania
"As I tell my tango friends, I mainly learned tango from three ladies: two instructors from Romania and yourself with Musicality and your tips. Your Musicality program, together with the first '9 tips' for leaders, and '27 BA insider tips' did help me decisively to understand the tango music and have significant progress with my dance. That gave me the courage, this year, on September 11th, to compete in the first Romanian Championship, for non-professionals, where I received the 2nd position out of a dozen couples. Once again thank you very much, you are doing great work!"
