I’m so proud, after more than 25 years of dancing, to pass on the gift of Tango to so many students at the Academy every week. It is my pride, my life! There is nothing I enjoy more than witnessing my students taking their first steps because I know their lives will be transformed. Dance is inside of all of us, the only thing we do at the Academy is guide you through the journey and unleash your potential.
