Tango De Pista 2015 World Champions
Clarisa Aragón and Jonathan Saavedra

We saw them perform last year and it was absolutely dazzling. The control they had over their speed and power as a couple was stunning, and within a few steps, easily secured them a place in my mind as one of the most memorable dance performances I’ve ever seen.
–Gary Horton, Jr.

YouTube Channel for Clarisa y Jonathan Tango

Tango Tribe feels grateful for the honor and privilege of introducing the central Texas tango community to 2015 World Champions Jonathan Saavedra and Clarisa Aragón for workshops and private lessons. The same mastery and brilliance that they bring to the floor in their performances, they also share in their teaching, with clarity of material and modern pedagogy.

We were blown away when we first saw them perform. When we returned to Buenos Aires in August, we took a lesson with them and were really impressed both by their information and by their pedagogy.
–Adam & Tilly, Providence Tango

This is a LIMITED opportunity for no more than 12 ADVANCED couples. We want everyone to have a good partner to work with and to have individual attention from the instructors. If you do not have a regular partner, contact david@tangotribe.com about pairing you with a suitable partner.
