Tango Club of Albuquerque presents


January 19, 20, 21, 2018

Lloyd Shaw Dance Center
5506 Coal SE, Albuquerque, NM

Homer and Cristina both started their tango obsession in 1997. They met each other in 2001 and were married in 2002. That's also the year Homer left his seven-year mechanical engineering career to pursue teaching tango full-time! He found it natural to transfer his life experiences (teaching swimming and martial arts, tutoring math and science) into teaching tango. Besides being an amazing tango follower and leader, Cristina also brings her 20 plus years of yoga study and other movement experience into the mix. As a tango teacher she gets right to the point and addresses the often hard to see problems in a very clear and concise way.

Each brings with them over nineteen years of social dance experience emphasizing a fusion of tango ideologies, via the "one tango" philosophy.

As teachers, Homer & Cristina are committed to creating a positive class environment and try to reduce barriers that may inhibit students from really finding their own dance! They have created many didactic review videos of their classes, and also the TangoStudent Blog complete with detailed class notes. They are currently working to develop a more thorough online learning experience via their website: TheOrganicTangoSchool.org
