Susana Miller is the preeminent teacher of Argentine Tango in the Milonguero Style, a term she coined to introduce tango apilado to students around the world. Milonguero Style is a synthesis of Susana’s studies over the years of the unique dancing styles of the older milongueros. She was the first person to study the anonymous and intuitive milongueros’ dance, to enjoy tango in the same way they have done for decades: dancing socially. She has a gift for deciphering their distinct vocabularies and choreographic combinations, and transmitting these to her students. In this way she has developed a rich language that condenses more than a hundred years of tango tradition. Her work as a teacher has shaped tango as we know it now, not only in Buenos Aires, but also around the world.
Her ability to focus on key concepts and communicate them with ease distinguishes her from her predecessors, since she can – with a language as technically correct as it is accessible – share the secrets of the Porteña milonga with everyone who wants to become part of it. Teacher of teachers, she has worked with most of the renowned milonguero teachers and is constantly training new generations of professional instructors. She has toured all around the world.
