Improvers Class with Rilind Modigliani

7pm ~ 8.45pm


Well, Rilind first discovered his love for Argentine Tango at Pasion Por Tango (Marion’s studio) in Auckland. In 2011, he moved to Buenos Aires to dedicate his time professionally to tango, taking classes with various maestros including Mariano Chicho Frumboli, Sebastian Achaval, Gaston Torelli & Moira Castellano and many others. Over the years he’s danced and performed at many Milongas in Buenos Aires.


Like any good Tango teacher, Rilind focuses on the technical elements of Argentine Tango but also knows how to have fun and to express himself through the music. He has an ability to adapt to any dancer he dances with and he’s keen to share his experience with you over the next 2-3 weeks whilst he’s in Auckland.


Rilind is arriving in Auckland this week and he will be giving his first class at the AUT on Friday, 9th March 2018!!


Rilind will also be available for private lessons so, please contact Kelly on 021 679 762 or directly with him on if you fancy booking some.

Our classes are fun and informal with focus on technique, musicality and partner works; to cover the basics and give you the confidence to dance socially with anyone at a Milonga (a social dance event)


*Everyone is welcome to join our class whether you are a student or not*


 ~~~ Story of ATSA ~~~

Welcome to the Argentine Tango Student Association (ATSA)!

 I’m Fritz, currently a second-year student in Bachelor of Creative Technology. This ATSA club was founded by Sheldon, Kelly and me; the idea is to create an association/platform that allows students all over Auckland to learn, practice and share Tango!

Never thought I would ever dance in my life until half way through the last year in high school; when I accidentally walked into a Tango Practica (a session where people practice their tango). Two years later I thought Tango is one very interesting thing that happened to me so…I thought you might like it as well (?)
