My name is Leah Anne and I’ve been teaching Tango since 2016. I received my Tango instructor certification through DVIDA and I am also certified to teach Adapted Argentine Tango for persons with gross motor skill difficulties such as Parkinson’s disease.
I had the fortunate experience of competing in Mundial (Tango World Championship) in Buenos Aires and the SoCal Tango Festival and Championship where I became the Vice Champion in the milonga category.
I have studied Tango across the US and in Buenos Aires with many Tango teachers including Jorge Torres, Julio Balmaceda, Maximiliano Alvarado & Paloma Berríos and Daniela Acuri just to mention a few.
What I’d like for you to understand when you study with me are the concepts of Tango movement. This allows you to learn to move your body in such a way that establishes clear, nonverbal communication between the leader and the follower. The walk is everything in Tango, it’s your signature.
Why learn Tango? It’s a journey, a life lesson, a moving meditation, and it teaches you to be in the moment. It changed my life. My hope is that you get to experience this magic also.
I look forward to seeing you in class.

Codigos of Tango
The Rules of Social Tango
Social Tango is more than just asking someone to dance and dancing with them. There’s a whole culture around the dance, and that’s where codigos comes in.
Before you can actually go ask someone to dance or accept a dance, you have to learn the rules of the floor. That’s what this section is all about.
This is where you’ll learn how to ask for a dance, how to enter the floor, what floorcraft is all about, where to sit, how to sit, what to wear and more. This is all under the heading of Codigos.
