Instructor's Bio

Eric fell in love with Tango in his first class. One month later he had moved to Buenos Aires to pursue the dance full time. In the decade-plus since he has continued to explore the many unique avenues of style, technique, and self-expression that Argentine Tango offers. Eric is a much sought-after instructor, performer, and dj all over the world, having worked extensively in the US, Europe, and Buenos Aires. He is exceptional both for his endless willingness to re-examine and refine his ideas as well for as for the unusual breadth of his knowledge and experience. In classes, Eric focuses on pursuing presence, ease, expression, and pleasure, as the quickest and most rewarding paths to further our understand of the dance.

Fundamentals for Colgadas
Shared axis movements can be intimidating at first and are often taught as a collection of ‘special’ techniques for ‘advanced’ dancers. In this class we’ll take a different approach, exploring colgadas from a perspective friendly to all levels of dancers. We’ll look at how minor changes to our ideas of pivoting and collection can make this oft-daunting movement accessible and hopefully even enjoyable.
