Eine wunderbar einfühlsame und klar kommunizierende Art, macht Spass mit Genia die Tänze zu erlernen. Danke für die wunderschönen Stunden.
Evgenia teaches chacarera in a fun and structured way that makes it very easy for beginners to follow the lesson and dance from the beginning. She dances so beautifully, it's very inspiring to watch her dance and learn this way from her. The atmosphere is super nice and everyone enjoyed to dance together.
Chacarera course exceeded my expectations and showed me how complex the dance truly is. It also completely opened my eyes to the world of argentinian folklore and its beauty. And the teacher is just amazing! I recommend it to anyone, who loves to dance.
So happy I had the opportunity to learn my first chacarera steps with Genia. Genias knowledge and love for the argentine folk dance in every class was very helpful for me to learn this beautiful dance in a safe and inspired environment.
