Rebecca Rorick Smith has been involved in Tango since 2000. She began in Eugene, Oregon, and facilitated the expansion of the community by helping open the non-profit Tango Center there (http://www.tangocenter.org). Key influences in her career came from Evan Griffiths, Jaimes Freidgen, Kara Wenham, Dana Frigolii and Luciana Valle. After multiple trips to Buenos Aires, she settled in Ashland, where she has been teaching tango at SOU and traveling to teach in many of Oregon's developing communities. Currently she is moving to Portland to pursue Tango full time.
She is well known in the US Tango circuit for her comprehension of many styles and as a strong female Lead. Her classes are accessible and clear with a vigorous mix of work and play.
