Argentine Tango Teachers, Performers, & DJs

Adam began his obsession with dance in 2000, when he found tango. The organic movement and improvisational nature of tango appealed to his desire for exploration. The desire to continually experiment and share his own discoveries led Adam to begin traveling and teaching throughout the US. He has a deep and varied background in kinesthetics and movement that he applies to his dancing, ranging from study in the martial arts, to formal education in the fields of medicine and massage therapy. His teaching style is grounded and tactile, as he experiences tango as a physical, reactionary dance. His aim is to make the dance feel good, as well as look good. He encourages his students to be creative, inventive, playful, and musical, as these are the qualities he cherishes most about tango.

Tilly has been a dancer and musician her whole life. She grew up in the classical world, training as a ballet dancer and working as a chorister before branching out into musical theater, where she first encountered tango as a choreographer’s assistant. She approaches dance as a physical manifestation of music, and she views tango as a particularly expressive medium for communicating ideas and feelings not well-captured by language. Tilly is also a pianist, and transcribes, arranges, and performs live tango music with Boston-based Orquesta Sin Trabajo. She recently finished her Ph.D. in Neurobiology at Harvard University. In tango as in science, she encourages students to take joy in the process of discovery and experimentation.
