About ME

Hello, I’m Kelly! Thanks for checking out this page!

I started my Tango journey in London in 2009 and have been studying with some of the most well known and respected teachers in Buenos Aires since 2014. I have been teaching since co-founding the Argentine Tango Student Association in 2016 at the Auckland University of Technology, a platform that allows students to learn, practice and share the beauty of Tango!

My passion is to introduce the new generation to this captivating and beautiful dance and to grow the Tango Community in Auckland. For me, the Tango is a dance that comes from the heart and complements the music; Less is More.

Other than teaching, I also organise social dance events (known as Milongas), DJ and perform at various events.

About the Classes

I teach the authentic Tango as you would see and dance in Buenos Aires milongas and around the world.

The classes are fun and informal with focus on technique, musicality and developing the partnership; to cover the basics and give you the confidence to dance socially with anyone at the Milonga.

There are more to learn about the Tango than its dance form which you’ll learn during your journey with me.

*What is Milonga? The term “Milonga” has three meanings: (1) A style of Tango; (2) Tango music genre; (3) A social event or location for tango dancing. Here, we are referring to (3).


Authentic Tango

Tango is a culture and necessity – particularly in the hearts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Tango became a symbol that reflected the music and folks’ way of living and emerged in the 19th Century. This style of dancing is social and unique in the genre of music.

The beauty of Tango is in its improvisation; there is no set sequence or steps to follow; and we dance with different partners all the time. No two tango dances are ever the same.


Class Benefits

As Tango isn’t built around learning rigid steps or sequences, it’s both great fun and relaxing especially after a tough day of studying or working. It’s also a great form of exercise both physically and mentally. It’s also a fantastic way to meet people and make new friends.


Do I need to Sign Up?

No sign up required.


What should I wear?

Clothing that is comfortable to move around in. For footwear, wear shoes that you can pivot easily and don’t stick to the wooden floor.
