Makela Brizuela lends her name to Makela Tango, a dance-education emporium that specializes in the characteristic dance of Brizuela’s homeland, Argentina. She organizes classes that cater to learners at every level with informal practices, basic lessons, intermediate instruction, and classes about dancing in heels. Brizuela brings more than a decade of dance experience to the table, having honed her craft at the National School of Ballet of Argentina. Over the years, she’s taken advantage of prestigious opportunities such as performing at the Ford Amphitheater and creating, producing, and directing a cabaret show at the Museum of Latin American Art. The tango that she teaches is characterized by passion, joy, and ease of movement. On her company’s FAQ page, she recommends that, before class, pupils shower, floss, and go easy on any perfume that might offend a partner or attract hornets.
