These well known dancers and teachers are celebrated throughout the United States for their style, knowledge, and creativity. Rod and Jenny believe that the connection, musicality, and technique are the keys to fully appreciate the beauty of Tango. In their classes they want to concentrate on how to be comfortable inside the embrace, based on the logic and naturalness of movement. Get to know them better on their website:

World renowned Argentine Tango dancers, performers, and choreographers who also play locally, Celina Rotundo & Hugo Patyn will also be in attendance. This couple is known the world over for their stunning and dynamic interpretation and artistry, as well as their ability to connect to their audience with genuine and breathtaking energy and intensity. Through their teaching and performing they aim to positively contribute to the world-wide Tango community and spark the joy of Tango in the people they come in contact with. Get to know them even better:

Exceptional Dj, John Turci is a music scholar, dancer, and DJ. He teaches in the Music Theory/Composition division at the University of Texas at Austin. He has presented his research on tango music in national and international conferences, and is currently writing a book on the early history of the tango. John favors music from the Golden Age of Tango, but over the course of the evening, don’t be surprised if you hear one or two tandas from more contemporary groups, such as the Sexteto Milonguero.�John has DJ’d the top festivals throughout Texas and is thrilled to take part in this Holiday Tango Weekend in Dallas, a community for which he has great affection.
