Adam Cornett & Tilly Kimm (Boston) Interview, Performance: Adam has a deep and varied background in kinesthetics and movement that he applies to his dancing, ranging from study in the martial arts, to formal education in the fields of medicine and massage therapy. His teaching style is grounded and tactile, as he experiences tango as a physical, reactionary dance. His aim is to make the dance feel good, as well as look good. He encourages his students to be creative, inventive, playful, and musical, as these are the qualities he cherishes most about tango.
Fernada & Cristian (Chile/Berkeley) Interview, Performance: We started working on our dance together in 2011. The landmarks of that year in our tango career were competing in the Tango World Championship in Buenos Aires, and being invited to perform in an important Tango Festival in Mendoza, Argentina. In 2012 we traveled and performed in Europe, specifically Madrid, Seville, Barcelona, Paris, Lyon, Marseilles, and Nice. Wherever we danced, we were well-received by the European tango community. We have recently moved to Berkeley, California, USA, where we are excited to participate in the vibrant tango community!
