This is the second visit to Edinburgh by this teacher from the USA who is coming back by popular demand.

Alex Krebs

Alex is based in Portland, and teaches in the USA and Europe. He teaches Argentine tango for the social dance floor, emphasizing the improvisatory side of the dance through a strong communication between the lead and follow and on musicality. Alex tries to give his students the vocabulary necessary so that each person can find their own unique way of dancing -- dancing the tango of their own body.
