Special pre-milonga lesson & DJ

by

Rafael Baere (Brazil/ Germany)

 

Rafael learned DJ by talking to the best djs in Buenos Aires and by going to milongas only to pay attention to what djs where doing, how they were dealing and talking to people through their music. “I took a workshop with El pebete Godoy from La Viruta because he was one of the only djs to offer a workshop for djs on how to play in a milonga. And i also asked my best friends who are old milongueros on their taste and preferences. That made me play as i play nowadays. My aim is to play for the dancers, not for me or for my personal taste, so i never bring playlists. I try to play with the dance floor and interact with people paying attention to their response.”

 

Rafael started his life in dance at the age of 8 with break dance. Later, when he was around 15, he started learning classical ballet and contemporary dance. At the age of 18 he met ballroom dance and other embrace dances, like tango. In love with it, he started leaving all other dances behind and dedicated himself to very few dances, one of them tango. Since 2002 he took many seminars and private classes with Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne, Chicho and his partners Eugenia parrilla and Juana Sepulveda, Fabian Salas and his partners, Moira Castellano and Julio Balmaceda with Corina de la Rosa. At the age of 22 he started giving classes and since then he travelled around Europe, Russia, Brasil, Argentina Asia and Oceania and the USA giving classes, private classes and seminars, with a partner or alone. He aims to posture, balance, fluid energy, embrace and musicality in his classes, considering that the best way to learn how to dance is studying, not only copying sequences.
