Emma James & Tyler Haas
Emma & Tyler are passionate about sharing their love for the tango connection, movement and musicality. They have traveled all over the world in their search for tango nirvana and love meeting new tango communities. Their goal is to create a learning environment that is fun and positive.
Tyler & Emma have been dancing and teaching tango together for over 10 years. Currently they teach group and private lessons in Bend and travel occasionally for workshops around the state.
Alicia's goal is to empower her students to dance relaxed and confidently. She emphasizes the fundamental elements of Argentine Tango dancing: the music; posture, the walk; the embrace; the connection and navigation on the dance floor.
Tango music has been part of Alicia's life since she was born (her parents met dancing "Nostalgias" and she remembers dancing as a small child in the arms of her father). After taking tango classes and attending a few milongas in California in the late 90s, she became an avid tanguera. She has been involved with tango activities in Bend since 2003.
