I am from Malaysia and spent most of my adult life in England until 2013 when I moved to Auckland.

I started my Tango journey at a respected Argentine Tango School in London nine years ago and have also studied with some of the most well known and respected teachers in Buenos Aires.

One of my greatest passions is introducing the younger generation to this captivating and beautiful dance and to pass on what I’ve learnt from these great teachers to anyone who wants to continue developing their Tango skills. For that reason, I became one of the founders and resident teachers of the Argentine Tango Student Association at The Auckland University of Technology.

For me, Argentine Tango is a dance that comes from the heart and complements the music. To be able to achieve that unique and sensational feeling at every tanda, a combination of various techniques is fundamental and I’d love to share them with you.
