About your dancing:
Rosa's dancing is powerful, sexy and very feminine, emphasizing connection with the partner and deep feeling for the music without compromising freedom of movement or individual expression.

About your teaching:
In her teaching, Rosa is truly committed to the development of each student, sharing with them the deep and rich knowledge that she brings from other disciplines. Her generosity and open heart creates the perfect environment for the personal growth of everyone who approaches her.

I have been dancing for three years and my main focus is the comfort and enjoyment of my partner. The challenge in my case was my posture that was affected by my 4 years of Parkinson’s disease. My right hand tremor miraculously stops when I start dancing but I had a tendency to cramp down on my follower. I was really happy when Rosa not only agreed to take me up as her private student but told me she is excited about testing her approach to teaching tango on me. We both worked very hard and over a period of approximately 10 weeks. Rosa was able to prove that I can maintain a posture that gives comfort and enjoyment to my follower. I cannot forget the smile on one of my follower’s face when at the end of a dance she looked at me and said: this is nice. How did Rosa accomplish this? I don’t know for sure but part of it has to do with her really good understanding of the body mind dynamics especially the importance of visualization in correcting posture problems. Rosa is also a very patient and persistent instructor who understands the importance of fundamentals and musicality in tango. Being a beginner I am less qualified to judge Rosa as a dancer but I would say that as a dancer Rosa is able to add her own interpretation to the lead and music delivering to her leader and audience a fun and exciting experience. I would highly recommend Rosa to anyone interested in learning to dance in a way that is fun comfortable and enjoyable for both dancers.

Rosa is one of those rare teachers able to notice and provide insights about the way you are moving very quickly--and accurately. So her suggestions in both workshops and private classes have helped me to feel more comfortable almost immediately, and have also given me great ways to focus how I am practicing.

The exercises and images she offers come from her broad exploration and understanding of movement, and she generously provides them in ways that are creative, fun and always encouraging.

"I know Rosa as a dancer and as a teacher. In both capacities she gives herself entirely to the moment and transforms it into something unique and valuable. The first time I danced with Rosa, the sensation I had was that she transcended tango and moved as only one can that has absorbed the movements and rhythms of myriad dance forms and physical disciplines. As I soon discovered (and her bio will certainly attest) my sensation did not belie the facts. Recollections of my more recent dances with her bring to mind a feeling of sharing, as when good friends come together to share a glass of wine and good conversation. Steps and technique, while constantly present, seem to step aside and honor the moment of sharing that is taking place on the dance floor. As for her teaching, I took several private lessons with Rosa and I vividly recall the emphasis she placed not on steps but on the quality of the movement, the connection in the embrace, the energy in the walk. Those classes were revealing because they told me a lot about who Rosa is as a tango dancer and teacher but in the process allowed me to alter my view of tango. With her help I began to understand that tango is not something you learn, as in steps, but a never-ending process of refinement and exploration with movement, the music, and your partner. Thank you Rosa."





I believe in "Conviction of the Heart". Rosa is a breath of fresh air. She lives life from her heart. She teaches and dances the same way.
Her passion as a teacher makes one love what they learn from her.
Her passion as a dancer makes one love dancing with her.

“It is possible to fail in many ways...while to succeed is possible only in one way”. Aristotle.

For Rosa Corisco, the only avenue for accomplishment is hard work. She is a restless achiever and thrives when faced with challenge. Over a decade elapsed since her first introduction to Argentine tango but her self development as an artist, performer and teacher is continually evolving.
Her creativity has no limit when it comes to music, dancing or movement as a broader discipline. Her extensive knowledge of several dances such as salsa or her certification as a Gyrotonic® trainer give her an understanding of the body that are key to perfect her technique and develop her own personality when dancing tango where fluidity and dynamics meet subtleness and refinement.

Her unconditional love for life and the dance is felt in her versatile embrace and heard loud and clear as her heart and soul pour out at every step she takes in the street, the studio or on the dance floor.

As a tango dancer and teacher, Rosa Corisco is highly regarded for her emphasis on body awareness, connection, and musicality. Her classes and workshops are well known for their creative exploration and innovative approach to teaching tango’s fundamental movements.

Students are encouraged to develop attentive knowledge of the body, as well as how to bring individual expression and interpretation to the music and dance.
