Between 1996 and 2001, Daniel Trenner produced 72 instructional videos for
his Bridge to the Tango label (including two with Omar Vega). The videos
cover Daniel's own teaching and dancing, Rebecca Shulman's and that of a
number of other masters from the older and younger generations. These
videos were distributed by the Tango Catalogue through 2006.
The Tango Catalogue closed out its Bridge to the Tango catalog on December
31, 2006. All Bridge to the Tango instructional videos were withdrawn
from the market as of January 1, 2007.
Some of the titles may become available in DVD format in the future, but
that will involve complex negotiations in Argentina involving the the
rights to the video images and the music used in the videos. I've been
told some of videos?including those with Daniel, Rebecca and the earliest
recorded in the masters' series?will never be available again because the
original video production was not suitable for conversion to DVD. In late
2006, a representative of the Tango Catalogue said that they expected to
carry any of the titles that become available on DVD. None has become
available so far.
Daniel Trenner's website still has information about the videos.
The TejasTango webpage also has information about the videos.
No outlet for retail sales is mentioned on either website, but I've
occasionally stumbled across a few of the videos for sale in online tango
With best regards,
