My goal  is to inspire you to move.  To Dance …
Sharing my exuberance for tango, teaching  YOU how to go about learning the “language” of tango– finding your personal style, your own expression– not simply to imitate… how to find connection while embracing the sensuality, fluidity & fun in Argentine tango.
Never danced before? Well it’s not too late, Jean  is your guide,  opening the door for you, showing you the joy in learning, feeling confident and dancing.
Begin now your ever-expanding tango-journey!
Once  a research scientist, now  “converted” to work with movement, tango and wellness and healing, via  teaching Argentine Tango & Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® and  also a Certified Reiki Practitioner.  Jean began partner dancing over 25 years ago to recover from injuries, and once she “happened on” the tango, she’s found her home and has been tangoing for over 20 years. As one of the tango “pioneers” in the USA, she can claim much credit for creating the tango community in the greater Philadelphia area. In her pioneer work she brought in a virtual who’s who of performers and master teachers of tango to the area. She gratefully acknowledges the inspiration and training received from the following luminaries (and now friends) of the tango world and among them are: Brigitte Winkler, Cacho Dante, Carlos Gavito, Daniela & Armando, Daniel Trenner, Eric Jorrisen, Eduardo Arquimbau, Ester, Mingo & Pablo Pugliese, Fabian Salas, Gullermina Quiroga, Gustavo Naviera, Juan Carlos Copes, Lorena Ermocida, Nito & Elba, Osvaldo Zotto, Pepito & Suziki, Rebecca Shulman, and Rudolfo Dinzel.
She has lectured on the history of the dance and tango music at Community College of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  She has also taught tango in a variety of other settings, and is currently based in NYC affiliated with Dance Manhattan, perhaps the outstanding tango teaching institution in the US.
To deepen and expand your dance experience, Jean offers EFFORTLESS DANCEworkshops, where you explore and acquire increased movement possibilities and awareness through Feldenkrais Method®, while expanding your Argentine Tango repertoire, adding finesse to all your dancing.
A note for Baby Boomers: want to keep that youthful sense of vitality and in lively wellbeing?  Jean is also a certified Change Your Age® teacher, we offer classes and workshops that will show you how to retain that youthful wellbeing. Shattering the belief that aging means debillitation, let past “middle-age” be your best years yet!
