Tango Atelier - Sharon Vanesse

Sharon loves the fact that it is never a challenge to greet the day as every day has an element of dance for her. Introduced to Tango in 2001 and attending the very first of the NZ Tango Festivals, Tango has been a wonderful journey of discovery with several trips to Buenos Aires and many workshops from some of the most fantastic Maestros and Teachers. She enjoys taking her students through the process of being able to confidently dance socially, and loves the fact that like many cities of the world where one can dance Tango, Wellington has a very vibrant scene that holds its own.Sharon
