Reviews about KosherLat Valeria Duek 2016

Hi Valeria:

Bob and I (and our friends the Mandels) enjoyed touring with you.
Your extensive knowledge and enthusiasm of your dear Buenos Aires helped make our  trip more meaningful.  Bob and I did get to the magnificent Opera House.  We even heard part of a dress rehearsal.  This is a gem.

Best regards.
Bobbie Palter, MA USA

Kosher Tango in Buenos Aires

Naomi Klinger, a modern Orthodox business woman of New Jersey, mother of four, came to KosherLat with very specific requests for her one week family trip to Argentina on January 2016. "I know my people", she kept saying.
Among the services requested, the Singers wanted a private tango lesson on motzei-Shabbat. Valeria Duek, the director of Kosherlat, knows the best tango dancers in town to teach tango for beginners in a fun, easy and very enjoyable way.

Trinidad Solar and Claudio Strang are international teachers of tango. Both have traveled the world teaching and performing Argentine tango. Countries visited as dancers and teachers include Finland, Korea, Canada, Brazil, Peru, Israel, the United States, and Italy. Working closely with the students, their intention is to provide each student with the best instruction, giving real importance to the critical elements of tango.

Claudio and Trinidad are native to Buenos Aires and both began studying tango in 1995 with renowned masters of traditional tango.
The tango class took place in the traditional “porteño” neighborhood of Boedo.  The barrio is known for its influence in tango culture and its cafes were important meeting places for writers and musicians.

Trinidad and Claudio include pictures, a video of the class and Kosher snacks.

Enjoy the video of the Klingers tango class and begin dreaming of yours.
