Richard Council has taught and performed on stage and television throughout the United States and abroad. In 2003 he and his partner Colette Hebert won the US IDO Championships. They were finalists in the Tango Salon category and semi-finalists in the Stage Performance category at the World Championships held in Buenos Aires in 2005. In 2006 they performed in Tokyo at the Tango Libertad festival. He has been an invited instructor at the Portland Tango festivals a number of times and performed with Colette Hebert in the movie The Heart of Tango. 

 Richard continues to tour and give workshops around the country. He is appreciated for his elegant style of tango and the clear and the precise methodology of his teaching. Richard continues to sharpen his skills as a dancer and teacher so that he might teach and enrich others in the art and passion of the Argentine Tango wherever he travels. We are very fortunate to have a dancer of this level come to Bend to do a series of workshops.
