Argentine Tango Workshops w/ Judy & Jon Margolis April 8-9 2017

April 8, 2017 @ 4:15 pm - April 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm UTC-4


International Tango Masters Judy & Jon relocated to Las Vegas in 2013 after 10 years working as tango professionals in Buenos Aires.

During the years they lived in Buenos Aires they acquired a profound understanding of the dance, history, culture, and music of the Tango. In Buenos Aires they performed regularly on stage and at famous Buenos Aires milongas including Sunderland, Salon Canning, Porteno y Bailarin, Gricel, Sin Rumbo, La Baldoza, La Ideal and La Nacional.

They were on the teaching staff of prestigious tango schools: Torquato Tasso, La Ideal, and Academia Tanguera.

Judy & Jon are esteemed for their connection and impeccable technique. Jon is known for his elegance, connection, sentimiento, and musicality. Judy is admired for her embellishments and beautiful footwork. They teach and perform traditional Argentine Tango de Salon social and
exhibition style based in their own Tango Verdad Method.

Judy & Jon are the only north American couple ever to have been awarded by the Secretary of Culture of the city of Buenos Aires the P’a Que Bailen Los Muchachos award – recognizing them as authentic Argentine Tango dancers, teachers, performers and milongueros.
