Korey is a professional composer turned
tango dancer. He brings a lifetime of musical experience and an
unquenchable thirst for tango to his teaching.
He developed his
dancing on the social dance floors of the world's tango capitols.
Originally from Kansas City, Korey has spent the better part of the
last eleven years traveling and teaching tango in England, Holland,
Spain, Germany, Russia and Argentina, sharing his passion for tango,
music, expression, and connection.
In recent years, this mission has
grown to include work with aspiring tango musicians at festival
throughout North America and Europe to create live music for dancers.
As a teacher, he shares his huge knowlegde of both the dance and tango
music with clarity and humour. His teaching received positive feedback
every time he has taught at Bramshaw.
Adeline's dance experience began with a decade of jazz dance and
aerobics, which led to her first teaching experiences. In 2002, she
found argentine tango and was fascinated by the degree of awareness
necessary for tango's intensity of connection.
teaching tango during her time at Humboldt University in Berlin, where
she received her Masters in Gender Studies and Pedagogy. Her desire to
enhance her effectiveness in teaching tango motivated her to pursue
graduate studies in dance pedagogics at IBT. Upon completing her dance
teaching credential she immediately migrated to Buenos Aires to study
and teach tango. She returned to Berlin and began work as a full-time
tango instructor in Berlin's three largest Tango schools (TTMS, Nou, Mala
Junta). She worked with a great variety of colleagues which fostered an
openness for different techniques and styles.
In addition to the 2014 line-up of workshops, Steve and Debbie are delighted to
annouce a special weekend in the company of the fabuous dancing and
teaching combo of Daniela Pucci and Luis Bianchi (pictured above) on

work on tango musicality receives award from sallycatway.com in Buenos
SallyCat in Buenos Aires has awarded an ABBBA to Steve for his exciting
and original work in the field
of development of musicality in tango dancers; especially, his weekly
workshops in Advanced Musicality at Bramshaw Tango (which I would love
to attend one day), and this brilliantly clear and effective chart of
tango orchestras through time.
"Steve has always been an inspiration to me because of the strength,
passion and generosity in his tango heart, the wide range and quality
of the tango events that he runs with his wonderful wife Debbie, and
the musical genius that he brings to the British tango page", SallyCat
writes in her blog.

MILONGA UNO! THE
Milonga Uno happens every 2nd Friday of the month, 8pm - midnight.
There is so much choice for dancing argentine tango socially these days
if you are a
confident dancer. For the
last few years we have observed
beginners and recent beginners try a milonga or tea dance once or twice
and then give up. The problem is the seniors in the dance community are
getting better and better but from a beginners' perspective 'better and
better' is perceived as 'intimidating and exclusive'.
A dancer who was a regular tango dancer 7 years ago, dropped in
recently to say hello and commented on how much the scene had changed,
saying "You know Steve, it's not as much fun as it used to be". That
got me thinking.....
Milonga Uno is designed to be fun. It is not
in any way a
milonga - we offer this format on other nights, as do most other
organisers. Milonga Uno is for people who enjoy dancing, having fun and
going out for a great social evening. The music is skillfully mixed by
include some real gems of Argentine tango, vals and milonga, but more
than 70% of the playlist
will be alternative, modern music that
dancers can connect rhythmically to. MILONGA
There are no tandas (a collection of 3 or 4 tracks followed by a
cortina). Music is played track by track to encourage dancers to dance
one track at a time instead of adhering to the 'finish the tanda
whatever happens rule'. Its a party, not a trial by jury!
With this eclectic, esoteric mix of music, you are likely to hear some
tracks that you don't want to dance to. Take a seat and socialise, the
next track is less than 4 minutes away.
Hot and cold drinks and snacks are provided and the fun starts at 8pm
and goes on until midnight. If you are getting a little bored by your
dance, or are a tango newbie who wants to gain confidence while having
fun, or if you simply love to dance, Milonga Uno is perfect for you.
