Teaching

As a tango teacher and forever a student of dance, I prefer to focus on the fundamentals. Quality of movement, connection to your partner and musicality are the three areas my lessons focus on. 

I  currently teach fundamental group lessons in Gainesville on Mondays at 7pm. I also teach an intermediate-advanced TangoFix class in a home studio every other Tuesday evening. Classes are role-balanced and you must register in advance. I also teach private, semi-private and group lessons upon request in my home or your studio/home. 

In addition, I teach at and help run the Argentine Tango Club at the University of Florida on Wednesday and Sunday evenings.

DJing

As a tango DJ, I enjoy playing music which will actively engage dancers and keep them on the floor all night. My preferred style is more traditional, with a wide sampling of orchestras from the Golden Age, and more particularly from the Golden Decade of the 1940s. Some of my favorites are D'Arienzo, Biagi, Canaro , DiSarli, and Troilo. 

Although I prefer traditional tango music, I understand the importance of playing for my audience. My DJing is adaptable for each community. I look to the organizers of a milonga to give me guidance on the dynamics of their attendees and will adjust my music selection accordingly. 

 


I also organize the annual Tampa Tango Festathon, this year being held during Thanksgiving weekend.
