Salida, Colorado is famous for hot springs, skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, fishing, art galleries, & now TANGO!Join us for a  Milonguero Style Tango Encuentro.

This is a weekend gathering of committed, experienced Milonguero Style dancers coming together to study, build community and enjoy dancing together!  We have great DJs lined up and a relaxed schedule of classes.

Last year we filled up early, so if you know you want to be part of this weekend, register as soon as you can. Registrations are accepted on a first come first serve basis, and we will be keeping gender balanced.

Liz began dancing at the age of five, studying ballet, modern, tap, and jazz throughout her childhood in New York City. She performed with the Jose Limon Dance Co. at Lincoln Center and later through the Julliard School of Dance. As an adolescent, she was a scholarship student at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center.

Since 1991, Liz has focused on authentic club-style social dances originating in Latin America. She has been dancing Argentine tango for the past 18 years. While she has studied all forms of the dance, her love lies in the on-body,  “milonguero-style” tango – the tango of the Golden Age and the tango of the crowded dance floors of Buenos Aires. In this style, she has studied extensively with Ricardo Vidort, Alicia Pons, Susana Miller, Osvaldo & Coca Cartery, Maria Plazaola, and Pedro Sanchez.

Liz has had her own business teaching dance for the past eighteen years in Santa Fe, New Mexico and now works full-time teaching milonguero-style Argentine tango both privately and in group classes. In addition, she teaches tango, nationally, in weekend workshops, including five Denver Tango Festivals, and with the late Ricardo Vidort, a renowned and deeply respected milonguero of the Golden Age. Liz has been hosting statewide milongas in Santa Fe since 2002. She currently hosts a monthly Two Moon Tango Milonga in Santa Fe.

Liz’s love of people, her technical ability in both leading and following, and her passion for the energetic and emotional elements of the dance have led her to develop effective ways of teaching not only the physical and functional aspects of the dance, but also the more elusive, transcendent qualities of the dance. Her exploratory form of teaching allows for a visceral experience of tango as a form of communication, creativity, profound connection, and the joy of self-expression.

Liz holds an interdisciplinary Bachelor’s degree in art and psychology from Bennington College and a Master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialty in body/mind integrative therapy from Antioch University. She gave up her career in body-psychotherapy in 1998 in order to devote herself to teaching dance full-time.
