If you're brand new to partner dancing or a regular at the local milongas, I can help you achieve your goals as a dancer, whether that's attending weekly group classes with confidence or becoming a sought after partner at milongas and practicas.
I focus on preparing students by providing them with a strong technical foundation, including instruction on the technique, figures, skills, and etiquette necessary to thrive in the tango community.
In addition to tango, I have an extensive background in ballroom, jazz, modern, ballet, and Pilates, all of which inform my teaching methods.
Argentine Tango is a complex dance- elegant, sensual, passionate, and intricate. Unlike most other social dances, Argentine Tango does not have a set syllabus of choreographed figures to be performed on the dance floor. Instead, partners improvise together to chain together sequences of steps, pivots, crosses, and subtle changes of weight, allowing each dancer to interpret the music. Since its inception in Buenos Aires and subsequent global popularity, the dance has established itself as one of the most iconic partner dances. The SF Bay Area boasts one of the strongest communities in the United States, with opportunities to dance every night of the week.
