Caren Bayer is the director of Manhattan Center for the Alexander Technique, which certified teachers from 2001-2014. She received her certification in London from Patrick MacDonald in1984 and since then, has maintained a private practice in New York City as well as teaching workshops internationally. She has been on the faculty of Pacific College for Oriental Medicine and currently has a teaching affiliation with the New School for Social Research. As a former dancer and longtime student of the martial arts, Caren brings 30 years of movement research to her teaching. 

Caren: My approach to the Alexander technique is a beautiful compliment to Tango. In this method, teacher and student coordinate, listen and move together freely while aligning and restoring the integrity of their backs and center. The fundamental teaching whether for the lay person or a dancer is to unwind tensions that interfere with their natural poise, to gain greater awareness of spiral pathways flowing from the ground up and to. find the precision and comfort that makes dancing easier and more enjoyable.

Manhattan Center for the Alexander technique

YVONNE MEISSNER - TANGO dances tango since 1987 and met the Alexander Technique in 1996. Learning tango from the 90ies in the famous Salón Almagro in Buenos Aires with legends like Eduardo Arquimbau, Pepito Avellaneda, Teté Rusconi, Antonio Todaro, Vanina Bilous, Susana Miller, Cacho Dante for tango de Salon apilado, Tommy O’Connel and El Tango Guillermo for milonga con traspie and Canyengue Orillero with Rodofo y Maria Cieri and her teacher Pocho Pizarro. Mostly she is formed by the nameless milongueros in those times who called here bebe’, as by then the young generation Argentinians didn’t dance tango yet, as they only started from 1996.
Since 22 years she teaches tango and internationally performed in festivals next to names like Pablo Veron (Toulouse Festival, France), Osvaldo Zotto & Lorena Ermocida (Sitges Festival, Spain), Gustavo Naveira & Giselle Anne (Hamburg Festival, Germany), Miguel Zotto (Ithaca New York Festival, USA), Carlos Copello (Hamburg & Sitges Festival), Fabián Salas and Cecilia Gonzáles, (Hamburg Festival, Germany), Nathalia Games & Gabriel Angio (Contesto Brussels, Belgium, being jury members) and Leo Calvelli & Eugenia Usandivaras (Sitges Festival & Toulouse Festival) and Facundo (Vermont Festival, USA). 
Since 1996 she has become famous for her practical analytic teaching with various body work techniques and looks back at 25 years experience in teaching tango. Yvonne is trained in Contact Improvisation, Modern Dance Techniques, Bodynamics and holds titles in Focussing, Somatic Experiencing and Alexander-Technique. From 1996 she has taught all over Europe and from 1999 in the USA/Canada/Brazil/Argentina, since 4 years in Asia. In the USA she was historically the second female professional to be invited without partners due to her didactics in teaching.
Yvonne's style redefines the role of the follower in Tango. Yvonne emphasizes the use of torsion including the use of the hip, synchronization of the movement inside the couple and interaction between lead and follow resulting in a conversation of bodies. She became famous for the rhythmical decorations of her footwork, being taught by the older milongueras in Buenos Aires she witnessed in the 90ies plus Canyengue delivering an unbridled sense of communicative play for the couple.
She partnered emblematic figures like Susana Miller, Cacho Dante (and was their first organizer ever outside Argentina), Rubén Terbalca, Eduardo Aguirre, Ricardo Maceiras (El Pibe Sarandì), Luisito Ferraris, Ana Maria Schapira, Pocho Pizarro, El Pibe Avellaneda and many others of the young generation like Fernando Serrano, Luis Rojas, Sebastian Pereyra, Rolando Valdivia.
