This session will be Aidan Huene’s debut as the beginning class instructor for Tango Utopia! Aidan discovered tango in 2015 at the University of Pittsburgh’s Tango Club. She began exploring both roles in 2016 and has since danced both roles socially. Just as Aidan learned and developed her own tango in both roles, she takes a practical approach to teaching. She focuses on imparting elements which get students onto the dance floor and into embraces that create awareness of one’s own being, connection with others, playfulness with the music, and joy in every tanda.
