About the instructor:  Juan Manuel Alessandrini was born in the southern most part of Argentina and has been dancing Argentine Tango since the age of 10.  At age 18, he became an assistant in his Aunt and Uncle’s school’s “Tours de Milongas.”  He then moved to the United States and began tteaching at their Authentic Argentine Tango school in Summit, N.J.

 

For the last three years, Juan has been teaching and performing in the United States with his partner, Olga Pisano, in the tri-state area.  Juan prefers to teach in the more traditional style of Tango and “believes that the authentic principles provide the best foundation for any Tango dancer and that this is what is necessary in order to learn the proper way to lead for the man and the proper way to follow for the woman, as well as learning the embrace which is essential for the connection with your partner, and how to interpret the music.”

"I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day."
