TANGO 101 at Argentine Tango Festival

TANGO 101 at Argentine Tango Festival

Rommel Oramas and I will be teaching a Tango 101 course at Arizona State University’s Argentine Tango Club’s hosted festival on April 1, 2, 3. 


3 Great Reasons to attend the Festival:

3) SUNNY ARIZONA IN APRIL and for some of us, it’s right here!!

What an amazing line-up of teachers. I think the best teachers all in one place:

Tomas Howlin – I have taken classes with Tomas many times over the years. He is a student of my dearest maestra Graciela Gonzalez. Tomas has so much to offer and does so with whit, charm and sincerity.

Shorey Myers – I remember Shorey from festivals way back! I have seen her grow in her dedication and drive to understand this dance and its music. SHE IS my most FAVORITE DJ! I AM REALLY EXCITED TO HAVE HER HERE IN PHX!

Homer and Cristina – This lovely couple are not new to Arizona or to ASU. They have generously come to share their love and professionalism with the students of ASU and Flagstaff. The always wow the ASU students and inspire them. I know you will love them too.

Eric Lindgren and Rebecca Rorick Smith – I met Eric in Buenos Aires several years ago and fell in love with his dancing! I had seen videos of Rebecca and admired her from afar and didn’t officially meet her until recently. They come with a wealth of information. They are a tall couple and I know that all tall students will benefit from their perspective as well as their beauty. I took class with them recently and found the class completely fun and relaxed! I look forward to having them here as well.

No Nest… possibly returning to the North in a couple of weeks?

We are sorry that the weekend at the Nest in Jerome was canceled due to more snow. 

We are looking at some weekends coming up to head to possibly Sedona to revisit the material we were going to teach.
