She dances tango since early age, has learned the essence and spirit of this dance, in a natural way and in its true popular context: the first steps with the grandfather and later by the old milongueros of the Confitería La ideal. For many years the tango remains a simple but passionate hobby. Until in 2009 she undertook the professional study.

*Active female role and couple communication.
*Theatricality: Interpretation and expression for social and scenic tango.
*Ladies in the masculine role
*Technique and senso-perception
First than all Amparo is a continuous and curious apprentice of argentine Tango. Reason why her pedagogy is constantly renewed. Students are also a chance to learn. She supported on Dinzel System. It was created by Gloria and Rodolfo Dinzel, Masters of teachers, international fame researchers and dancers, honorary members of the National Academy of Tango. Result of more than 40 years of passion for dance, research and work, it is a compilation of philosophical and scientific ideas, rules, procedures, forms, methods, techniques and mechanics. These form a coherent unit, designed for Tango creative development, study, research and teaching. The system is used at Estudio Dinzel in Buenos Aires, at the “Tango Educational Center”, the former University of Tango, as well as by teachers in several countries. It was also the first method used as therapeutic application of tango dance for blind people, Parkinson's disease, young people with down syndrome and as a psychological support for patients in palliative care.
Dinzel system is also a special way to think the tango and its possibilities. Dancing tango is a soul exercise and source of health, wellness and personal development. With its "HUG" fraternizes all the sensitive men and women of the world who want to approach this art.
We let do to tango, its accommodates to each one, accepts the ways of being, producing little by little a change. Therefore the teaching will be accompanied by this adaptability, learning to accept and observe, to listen and to live in freedom.
The technical background of the Dinzel system is specific, detailed and exhaustive without being rigid. It is not a value itself but an instrument to achieve expression and action freedom in our dance. Both roles have equal responsibilities in the dance, making it, a true conversation and adds spontaneity and sparkle to every tango. The female role of the Dinzel system is distinguished by being active, thinking and creative. The male role by the courage to listen to the women's proposals, accepting the challenge to leap into the unknown. To achieve this colloquial state, our research and didactic focuses on communication and expression; in that anxious search for a conscious freedom.
Amparo also has a baggage of other artistic studies such as theater, academic dances, music, contemporary art, meditation techniques and body awareness that applies to tango teaching.
In this line she offers workshops and seminars around the world.
SPECIAL SEMINARS -Examples-
The seminars are intensive and detailed training on a specific topic. They also intend to be a guide to access to an empirical knowledge, linked to the concrete experience of certain sensations. Normally the laboratories hold for one or two days on weekends.
Dance of listening
The laboratory's goal is to amplify our listening skills. Learn to listen, listen to learn. We will apply meditation, breathing and physical theater techniques and training to tango. The aim is sensitizing to listening ourselves, our partner and the human and social group. We approach the Argentine tango on the basis of the Dinzel system integrating the concepts of cell, organ and organism. We will try to integrate in the present moment all the listening levels necessary to enjoy our dance in harmony with the social context.
Interpretation, expressiveness and presence in Tango. Taking instruments from disciplines such as dance-theater, physical theater, butoh dance, the art of the clown and supported by the Dinzel System; We will work on the presence, character, listening and breathing applied to the dance of tango. Based on theatrical games, scenic proposals and body awareness training, we will try to explore the emotions that arise in our dance and how to canalize them. We will try to extrapolate useful tools in those other disciplines for the practice of improvisation in the social and scenic context of tango.
The musical stimulus
The seminar goal is to amplify your possibilities and stimulate your creativity as a dancer by the musical stimulus. Through tools, exercises, practices and theoretical knowledge. We will also try to make you aware of the elements that make up the music in order to be able of externalize them in your performance. We take music as a stimulus for our spontaneous and creative expression, without enslaving to it. We also consider it as an additional door to bind with each other and others.
"The only truth is freedom, instinct of the human being that expresses itself in the tango as a dynamic symbol and that uses improvisation as its only mechanic." Rodolfo Dinzel.
Communication, sense-perception, traditional mechanics of improvisation and creativity. The seminar belongs to a work developed by our masters "los Dinzel". It is an experimental work that aims to bring the participants to what they call "pure state of improvisation" in their theoretical work, in which were the first tango dancers of history.
A mature hug
Let's try to redefine roles from a different place than lead and follow. To access on an active and thinking female role
it takes courage from both of us. But we will discover together that we both have the possibility of proposing and we can together build the choreographic discourse, through the same codes of understanding and inside the hug oneness. We intend a masculine role that knows to listen women's proposals and has the courage to accept even on the forms that he doesn't know. A man who recognizes an equal ally in women, to facing dance floor challenges. Both in a conversational state of mind. We are ultimately looking for a final design that is the conjunction of two expressions, in an equal level of efficiency.
Body and Soul
Dancing tango is art. Consider it a form of art presupposes that there is something beyond muscular combustion and mere fun. This workshop is an invitation to undertake an intensive path of study beyond the surface of the form. An invitation to immerse yourself in the complexity of simple. A research that slowly can frees us from impurities, preconceptions, self-limitations, blocks, closures, insecurities in order to make our tango creative, enjoyable, free and natural. A space where you can explore Yourself through Tango.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to deepen knowledge, listening and practice the musical universe of Tango. "Ennio Fioramonti
"Dear Teacher, I met a woman in milonga last night who changed my life. I met you, I met the tango. The improvisation seminar is slowly maturing in my flesh. Sculpting the body is not easy, teaching to do it is divine enterprise. I admire you because you want to sculpt the human living and dancing bodies. You are a Master above all for the fact that it's waht you want to be. You have the vocation to take a person hand by hand and drive him into stormy forests. The universe contains as much wild as order, as much disorder as logic, in between the sea of possibilities, between the uncultivated and the cultivated. The art of dance is the navigation from the complex to the primitive, from the mind to the body. Thank you because you took me by the hand and shown me precious treasures. You have shown me the child joy who looks at the lightning and thunder with shining eyes. I wait for you in my nest to share with you and Seba the enchantment that is depositing in my veins. with love" g?
