I never had a desire to dance and would even go to great lengths to avoid dancing. That was until, at the age of 31, I experienced a ballroom dance performance that inspired me to start my journey in dance. After dancing ballroom for a number of years with no awareness of the existence of Argentine Tango, I stumbled across an Argentine Tango class whilst on holiday in Seattle, USA. It was not long after that, that I largely discontinued ballroom dancing and pursued Argentine Tango. With this new found passion for Argentine Tango, I travelled to Buenos Aires, Argentina on numerous occasions and more recently spending time in Europe to further my growth and development in Tango.
My major focus is on connection and creativity between partners, and have a continued passion to develop my understanding and knowledge of Tango movement.
I believe that the beauty of tango is to dance with a person and feel connected in that moment, and then to be able to walk away with a feeling of pleasure and a smile. I believe that it is about creating moments that take your breath away!
I am analytical & enthusiastic in my teaching, understanding both roles of leading & following. My journey from a non-dancer (with two left-feet!) to an accomplished dancer places me in good stead as an effective and patient teacher. I believe that Tango is meant to be fun and enjoyed which hopefully comes through in my teaching and dancing.
