April 29-May 2, 2005:
Patagonia Tango Festival held in Bariloche,
Who says Tango in Argentina is just a Buenos Aires phenomenon? It was
an incredible festival with as many as 500 participants (I had the privilege
of participating on the faculty as an invited assistant teacher, interpreter and Guest DJ).
Shahrukh Merchant is trained exclusively by top Tango maestros from Buenos Aires, and teaches authentic Argentine Tango as it is danced in the salons of Buenos Aires (where he has travelled for dancing and training 14 times in the last five years). Classes focus on proper technique in small groups where individual attention (essential for properly learning Tango technique) is possible. See more about Shahrukh under Biography and about his teaching style and philosophy under Teaching Tango.
