Patty Leverett and Kevin Rossio have a combined teaching experience in Argentine Tango of 25 years!  Individually and together they have been fortunate to study and dance with many of the great Argentine maestros: Copes, Gloria & Eduardo, Fabian, Fernanda & Guillermo, Carlos & Alicia, Gabriela, Miriam & Hugo, Gavito & Marcela, Susana, Cacho, Paiva, etc. Between attending and teaching at dance camps across North America and studying in Buenos Aires, they have been exposed to all styles of traditional Milonguero, modified Close Embrace, Salon and Exhibition Argentine Tango, as well as newly evolving forms of Tango Nuevo.  

Personally, Patty and Kevin favor a V shaped close embrace, which allows them to dance in tight spaces, yet open up when appropriate. Their dance style is described as elegant, connected & expressive. Their teaching, however, is adapted to close and open embrace styles.  

Both Leverett and Rossio are also trained musicians and savor the musicality available within the many moods and tempos of Argentine Tango, Vals and Milonga.  Still, their focus is on sensitive, intimate  partnering, allowing two to move as one while playing the music within.  

Workshops focus on - balance, centering, smooth movements & good technique - which promotes listening, collecting, focusing on partnering, sharing and trading moments of expression and embellishment - the musicality & individuality within common (uncommon:) Tango moves.  

Private Lessons: $75/hour for both of us or $50/hour for 1 of us.  That way we can book 2 privates at the same time.  The price is for 1 or 2 persons.
$50 FOR 5 CLASSES if paid by 1/13/2006.
