A Chat with Rockstar Tango
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Rockstar Tango turns traditional tango on its head by adding a hip-hop twist. Rockstars will learn the tango fundamentals in a way relevant to today's music that they can take to parties, clubs, or more private engagements...
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
There's a certain sensual intuition to human motion. A student in tune with their body and the way it moves with another will enjoy what tango has to offer.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Traditional tango is just that: Traditional. I started Rockstar because I wanted to share a form of tango I could take outside of the dance hall. With Rockstar Tango, I combined the music I love - hip-hop, R&B, pop, and electronica - with the sultry Argentinean fundamentals.
What do you love most about your job?
I love watching my students open up to their dance partners and themselves, in a dynamic, fun environment. My biggest joy is seeing one of my students get the stars in their eyes and take what they've learned out of the classroom to events and parties.
