Steve Rose has been dancing tango for almost 20 years. He has studied with dozens of teachers of various styles. He taught tango classes in Atlanta regularly for 5 years. His core idea about tango is that dancing basic steps as well as possible, with nuance, creativity and musicality, provides the greatest personal satisfaction for social dancers. Before turning his attention to Argentine Tango, he had danced and taught many other types of dance, ever since he was a teenager.
