MUMA is a tango teacher and a dancer of enormous experience. She was born in Buenos Aires, the cradle of tango, where she has taught with the best milongueros of her generation. She is coming as part of her West Coast Tour of the USA to share her accumulated knowledge and her teaching with the late Ricardo Vidort, considered one of the best milongueros of his time. She has also taught extensively with the inimitable Dani ‘Flaco’ Garcia,one of the living giants of the milonga with traspiéthe specialty that makesMUMA sought after in B.A. Having a milonguera of this caliber in Eugene is an opportunity not to be missed by dancers of any level, but especially by the more experienced ones who can perfect their already good styleIf one of your goals is to dance in B.A. with the best of the milongueros, these classes are made for you.
