Milonga Workshops with Angel Garcia Clemente
The purpose of progressive classes is to provide dancers an
opportunity to acquire skills over a period of two weeks instead of an
intensive weekend. While the emphasis of these workshops will be on
dancing milonga, the vocabulary and skills learnt in these workshops
can be easily used for other musical genres - tango and vals.
Originally from Mexico and currently residing in New York, NY, Angel
Garcia is an extremely versatile dancer and choreographer. Apart from
dancing tango/milonga/vals at a world class level he has a special
interest and specializes in Latin American Folk dances including
dances from Mexico and Argentina.
Angel has been an invited teacher in Cincinnati, Cleveland, San
Francisco and Portland. More importantly Angel is a semi-permanent
fixture in the Detroit Metro's tango community and his classes are
