Adam and Ciko are unique to the North American, and especially to New York, tango scene.
They have had the opportunity to study with teachers from all over the world, who come from very different ideologies, which has allowed and fostered their own approach and character of dance. Their dance has evolved by blending these outside influences they had with their own personal growth as a couple. Their style is defined by its sensuality, musicality & creative playfulness.
They emphasize the importance of a good technique with a comfortable, musical walk over complicated moves. Their goal as teachers is to bring their students’ personality out in their dance by teaching them the music and the concept of countless possibilities the dance offers. They cannot overemphasize the value of active followers which makes the dance much more interactive and fun. When teaching they are able to transmit their mastery of the complex concepts of tango while retaining their innate humor and humility.
As well as being dancers and teachers, they are Community Builders. This is a big part of what they value about Argentine Tango, that it brings people together and creates a sense of belonging. They visit different Tango communities around the US regularly and have become part of their development as well as their own local community. To list a few; Argentine Tango at Penn State, Princeton Tango Club, Yale Tango Club, Philadelphia Argentine Tango School, The Cleveland Tango School, University of Kansas Tango Club in Lawrence.
Adam and Ciko have started doing online lessons beginning of 2019 as part of a Tango program online.
When Covid-19 put all sorts of social activities on hold they immediately started events, classes through Zoom and other platforms to keep Tango Community connected, inspired and motivated during these difficult times. They have taken part in online Festivals, Lectures, Events and Classes during these months improving and developing their ability to teach and connect through online platforms.
