Fiona Foster & Nick Jones. Fiona knows that “to be fond of dancing is a certain step towards falling in love.” She was the president of the CU Tango Club when she met Nick in 2005. She half-hails from a land of petticoats and pettifogging, England, where she DJed, taught, and organized for visiting teachers. When not dancing, you can find her playing tango violin and Baroque recorder, studying Anthropology, and hosting a radio show on KGNU.
Nick is just a “hoofer with a spare set of tails.” These he keeps in the Library for emergencies along with ’78 RPM records and bizarre musical instruments. He started dancing tango in 1996 and playing bandoneon in 2002. He put together a tango quartet, Tangozo, in 2020.
Together Fiona and Nick have studied with Gustavo & Giselle, Pulpo & Louisa, and Omar & Monica. They have taught at Tango on the Rocks and give special weekend seminars. Fiona and Nick, like two Tango Planeteers, have combined their powers into a Voltron of Mystery, Sensuality, & Musicality.
