important elements in salsa and she incorporates this in all of

Jerry & Christine Perez
over 10 years of experience in various styles of dance
as professional teachers, dancers
choreographers, Jerry and Christine shifted their focus
towards Argentine Tango in 2004. Their lifelong
fascination with tango propelled them to make a splash
onto the national tango scene at the first ever 2007 US
Tango Championships held in NYC judged by Jorge Torres,
Sergio Natario and Alejandra Arrue. After taking first
place, they realized this would be the beginning of
their journey into an entirely new direction in their
professional careers. Upon arriving back home to Miami,
Florida they returned to the drawing board and dove into
an investigation of this complex and mysteriously
beautiful dance. Jerry and Christine felt a strong
desire to develop a more comprehensive, organic, fun and
straightforward approach to understanding and teaching
social improvisational based tango classes. They wanted
to provide what they found to be lacking in their
initial search for information. Out of necessity,
creativity was born. They deconstructed the long
patterns they were taught by breaking them down into key
elements of the dance as well as finding ways to easily
improvise by finding the endless amounts of
possibilities this dance offers. They are known for
their infectious enthusiasm and generosity as well as
their genuine interest in the development of their
Jerry and Christine understand the value of placing
strong emphasis on improvisation, technique and
etiquette for the social dance floor. They believe
anyone can learn to dance and teach by the same formula
they use for success...discipline, dedication,
consistency and a positive attitude are key.
