About Ramu:
Ramu took his first tango lesson on April 27th, 2000 in Buenos Aires
and was hooked instantly. He still has the same excitement for the
dance and his love for the music and the dance continues to grow.

To share that passion with his friends and colleagues, he started 
Michigan Argentine Tango Club @ the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor 
and was actively involved in growing it into a community that is now well
known for its excellent social dancing skills.

Ramu has since danced, DJd and taught all over the US and Canada.
His teaching and dancing are characterized by a keen musical 
interpretation, infectious enthusiasm and a deep love of the music
and the dance that is fanatic. He teaches tango for the social dance
floor with an emphasis on connection, musicality and improvisation. 
He is one of the most knowledgeable and sought after tango DJ's in
the US and has been a featured DJ at most tango festivals in the US.

Currently, he lives in Washington DC where he is the host, DJ and
resident teacher at Milonga Zandunga, one of DC's popular milongas.
Ramu is available for private lessons in Arlington, VA & Bethesda, MD.

About Rick Kim:
Rick found tango by accident in 2008. He has been dancing, DJing, and
teaching since then. Rick's beginner class has the following philosophy:
Tango is a dance of polarity, of the masculine and the feminine. Dancing
tango socially for a song is, basically, spending a moment with your partner
under the music and with other dancing couples. Enjoying tango dancing
does not require athletic skills of a professional performer. Standing right,
embracing right, walking right, and understanding the basics of marking are
all that are needed to enjoy dancing tango. With food as an analogy, it is
already a basic but nice meal. The beginner class teaches how to make
that basic but nice meal. Also, social tango dancing has unique codes
of conduct which were developed for the best interest of everyone involved.
The beginners class teaches these codes as well.
