Among many brilliant teachers in all the corners of the world from whom I was honored to learn different subjects, from theoretical physics to the art of drama, Lena is one of the most outstanding teachers on this huge planet!
While most of the teachers teach you to dance steps, or music, or sequences, Lena teaches you the very essence of tango. She teaches that tango is a dance for two personalities, and that every movement and everything you do would tell all the truth about you. The truth about who you are, about your dreams, your ideals, about your attitude to life, to the opposite sex, to children, about how you make love, in brief, about everything your life consists of.
Lena is an amazing teacher also in that she has no need to demonstrate you how incredible she is. She shows you instead how incredible you can be. You will ask, how does she do it? In a truly magical way: when she looks at you, at your body, at the way you move, you have an impression that you have been scanned by some super-computer and that there is nothing that might slip her attention. Then some mysterious calculations go on in her head, and she understands the most important problem which keeps you off the person you want to become. How could she do it? Like a true goddess, she only makes a minimal effort to get the absolutely necessary information to you.
