Students’ feedback

Feedback TeachingThese are some comments from students about my classes.

“Thank you Bärbel Rücker at Forest of Dean Tango for a fabulous class. Far too exhausted when got home last night to post and slept line a log. Technique is key and you’ve got all the keys to share.”
Julie J. – facebook –  Wednesday Tango Lessons | Lydney [Jan-Mar '17] (9th March ‘17)

“Thank you so much for such a good lesson tonight Bärbel….and a special thank you for your endeavours in getting me ‘more grounded’. …”
Cathy L. – facebook – Monday Evening Tango Classes in Hereford (30th January 2017)

“Listen people, this lady is an amazing tango teacher and we are very very lucky to have her teaching at two locations in the Forest Of Dean. If you want to learn to dance tango or more importantly if you want to learn to dance tango correctly from day one, then this lady is for you. There are other good teachers of tango around, but you will have to travel to get to them,This lady is on your doorstep. Try it in the free taster sessions you may be pleasantly surprised at the opportunity of a whole new social life that will eventually open to you. Coffee break and soap box over, back to my scissors.

“It’s easy to be enthusiastic with such helpful and relaxed teaching. I really feel I’m learning the basics of this dance and can’t wait to learn more. If anyone wants to learn this dance and has stopped and started and felt overwhelmed like me, then Bärbel Rücker has the perfect style of teaching.  ❤️”

“HEREFORD TANGO CLUB Thank you to Baerbel for a very enjoyable, structured lesson last night. Positive feedback from one and all. If you haven’t tried Baerbel’s teaching yet do come along and try for yourself.”

“Please read all way thru xx
Amazing Argentine tango class last night at the Old Bream infant school with teacher Bärbel Rücker.
All about axis, connection, weight change and much much more.
Barbel has a great teaching style and is able to give something to each of us. The 2 classes consisted of complete beginners, improvers and intermediates and yet she was able to ‘give’ something to each of us.
To learn to do anything correctly from the start is frustrating and takes time . However to unlearn bad habits after years of dancing or discover you are missing fundamental technique is worse. Learning with Barbel will prevent that. So…….
Anyone that wants to learn this beautiful dance it’s every Friday 7.30pm for beginners. Don’t worry that you’ve missed 3 classes it makes no difference, you won’t be playing catch up, tango is not taught in a way that it matters if you can’t make every week. It’s very clever.
For improvers/intermediates and indeed advanced tango dancers I can assure you your dancing will take a leap forward… Or your money back,
This class will compliment any other tango classes that you may be taking.
I dance at others that I also love, but this class is a bonus. …”

“1000tak Bärbel Rücker for musik og inspirerende undervisning. ♥ / Birthe H.”
Birthe H. – facebook – Tango Aarhus (milonga, workshop & praktia), Aarhus (21th April 2012)

“For at få en førsteklasses introduktion til det agentinske tangounivers, bookede vi en privat undervisningtime med Bärbel. Det var både sjovt, lærerigt, udfordrende og meget brugbart. Efter kun én time med god instruktion i musikken, rytmerne, de første trin, tangostemningen m.m. kunne vi forsætte dansen alene hjemme i køkkenet. Bärbel er en virkelig dygtig og inspirerende danseinstruktør, det formår at tilpasse undervisningen et hvert niveau. Vi vil helt sikkert igen prøve kræfter med den argentinske tango. Tak for en god aften!”

“Kære Bärbel Tusind tak for en aldeles udbytterig søndagsworkshop hos dig. Hvor har du dog en fin forståelig og pædagogisk måde at forklare tangoens trin og finesser på. Tak for din tålmodighed, tænk at du vedbliver at rette og rette og forklare, så vi efter 4 timers workshop forlod dig med en bevidsthed om at vi havde fået stort udbytte af dagen. Vi kan kun anbefale alle tangodansere at strømme til din undervisning. Mange hilsener fra Mogens og Hanne
P.S.: Ja og det er fantastisk at du oveni købet bruger tid på efterfølgende at sende optagelser af os fra danseundervisningen, så vi selv kan se, hvad vi gør. TUSIND TAK :-)”

Hanne N. – facebook – Balance Class – (July 2011)

“Selv tak, din indfaldsvinkel til baglæns ochos har været til nytte “i byen”, det giver mig større variationsmuligheder og opleves mere integreret med resten af dansen i stedet for som en figur for sig selv.(..) ”

“Mange tak for en inspirerende weekend med god musik og god undervisning. Vi var meget tilfredse og syntes vi har lært noget. Bl.a. har vi fået meget ud af eneundervisningen med dansefatning, det har i særdeleshed givet mening. Håber vi ses en anden gang!”
