Felipe and Ayano have a strong presence in the tango scene of the SF Bay Area. They embody the global nature of tango, traveling full-time throughout North America, Europe, South America, and Asia to teach, DJ, and lecture about the music. They also spend time annually in Buenos Aires studying and enjoying the dance and its history.
Felipe’s background includes a degree in education and 19 years of experience in tango. He is widely renown for his clear teaching strategy, enthusiastic personality, and ability to make real improvements in your dancing.
Ayano has been dancing tango since 2005 and is an accomplished and motivated dancer, with excellent movement technique and musicality. She has been teaching with Felipe for the past few years around the country.
Together, their demonstrations are clear and precise, offering students an excellent model of movement. Both Felipe and Ayano lead and follow interchangeably which is invaluable for teaching. Their series at Stanford University and their classes at The Beat in Berkeley are always in high demand, which is a tribute to their teaching excellence and wide appeal.
We are very fortunate to have tango professionals of this caliber in the Triangle. Come join us for a wonderful learning experience!
