The Art of Tango


about Florentino

Florentino Guizar & Jennifer Thomas

Avid Social Dancer, instructor, Organizer, & Tango Promoter

I started dancing tango because I had no social life after my separation. Other forms of dancing were just not satisfying the longing I felt for connection. After reading a newspaper story about Tango, I decided to learn to dance Tango by taking private lessons. For years, I danced at every opportunity. Five years later, I started teaching at UCSD Recreation with Isabelle Kay but only after breaking down every single aspect of tango to truly understand how to best teach beginners. I've taught hundredths more

"After just one private lesson and a couple of group classes, I amazed myself by the fact that I could start dancing and doing things that I did not even know I could do.”
"After my first class, I was so excited and I was so inspired that someone was teaching Argentine Tango so intuitively."
