Join Angel and Julie for a very special romantic Argentine TangoClass at the Tango Room this Valentine's Day
Your Instructors: Angel & Julie
The owners of the studio.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Angel Echeverria has been dancing tango for more than fifty years. He was taken under the wings of the master milongueros who taught out of love for the dance when tango was specific to the neighborhood clubs and local dance hall, before tango shows, before videos, before tango became a business.
Angel's approach to tango is to teach you to dance from the heart, to help you make a profound connection with the music and with your partner. He teaches the essential techniques that make steps and combinations seem effortless.
Angel and his partner, Julie offer classes that focus on bringing authenticity, precision and fluidity to your tango, as well as an emphasis on improvisation. And Angel happily shares his repertoire of tango stories.
Julie Friedgen is a former ballet and flamenco dancer who studied with Michael Brigante, one of the most well-known teachers in Los Angeles. Julie grew up listening to the music of Carlos Gardel and watching her parents' Argentine friends dance tango at parties. The music was always in her soul but it wasn't until over seventeen years ago that she began to study tango.
Once she began, she knew she had discovered the dance for the rest of her life. The technique she learned over the twenty years she studied dance gives her a strong foundation for the demands of tango and it is her joy to pass this on to her students.
Together she and Angel have become well-known for their distinctive "milonguero" style of tango.
