Thomas Rieser’s first encounter with the beautiful world of Argentine Tango was during his training as a movement teacher and therapist in Stuttgart from 1998-2000. Subsequently in Berlin, in 2000, he had the good fortune of taking his first dance course with Udo Hartmann. The joy and intensity, with which Udo taught and danced, have become ideals for Thomas’ own dance and instruction. There have been many lessons, collaborations, and friendships along the way, with many tango dancers, teachers and organizers, both at home and abroad – all of which have influenced Thomas’ understanding of tango, his dance and his teaching style. Incorporating the individual development of each student into the demands of a group has emerged over the years as one of the particular interests and tasks in the classroom, as well as in the organization of the school. Each dancer stands in their individuality at the center, and yet a simultaneous active effort is required for the social culture of the dance – which is in Thomas’ view, the central element, and tension, of tango.

In 2004 Thomas founded the school Nou Tango Berlin. He understands the management of the school as having the primary task of giving positive impulses for the tango in Berlin, and beyond. The culture of this dance lives through every dancer, and only through us can it survive and develop. Tango is a contemporary phenomenon, with a long tradition, which Thomas feels committed to.
