It’s an excellent core workout because your abdominal muscles are always engaged. It helps you get the tall and elegant posture a Tango dancer.
The DI TELLA® Apparatus features PVC Bars that are rigid enough to maintain themselves in an upright position, but flexible enough to move with your body while you perform the choreographies.

Following the legendary saying: “it takes two to Tango…” all the routines and exercises can be performed in couples, though they do not necessarily touch.
The DI TELLA® Apparatus is small (39 inches x 39 inches aprox.), and it’s squared shape makes it easy to carry, stack and store, one on top of the other, in a corner of the Studio when the class is over; or under the bed, if you happen to be in your house. It comes with its own book; the Instructive Manual; and a Collection of 30-minute DVD’s that include all levels of workouts.
