About us

Alejandro

I was born in Argentina and grew up in a tango family where my involvement in the tango culture began at a very early age. My grandfather Francisco Gée was a milonguero and musician, who danced and played in his own orchestra until he died at age ninety.

My tango style is traditional milonguero and was inspired by my grandfather but it continues to evolve through the influence of different well-known milongueros and milongueras of Buenos Aires.  My style emphasizes elegance, musicality, strong connection through close embrace, dancing for your partner and expressing that feeling through the music.

I am a psychotherapist by profession. Trained in the U.S., I hold two degrees in clinical psychology from the University of Washington and Seattle University. I did extensive research on tango therapy, where I explored the effect of tango-dancing on people’s moods and the experience of dancing tango. I had worked as a clinician for institutions in the U.S. and love to apply my clinical knowledge and experience to my tango instruction, which I have found to be very useful in helping my students achieve the desired results.

Erzsebet (Joujou)

I was born in the north of Transylvania in Romania, studied violin as a child and then foreign languages. After University, where I studied English and French, I started to work in advertising and cinema, organizing film shoots. I started as an assistant and worked my way up to producer, but then one day I decided to take a sabbatical and come to Argentina to take tango lessons. I’ve always danced something, but I used to think it can only be a hobby. Nearly a decade later I am still here sharing and intensely enjoying the teaching experience with Alejandro and our students, many of whom have become my friends. I speak 6 languages, I am a photographer and I am currently studying neuro linguistic programming and ericksonian hypnosis.

If you are interested in having an authentic cultural experience and understand what tango is about, send us a message and we can schedule one or several classes.
