About Ney & Jennifer
Ney Melo is an internationally renowned Argentine Tango teacher known for his innovative teaching methods and passion for teaching. His tango instruction is sought out by beginning and advanced dancers, as well as other teachers and choreographers from all over the world.
The atmosphere in his classes is relaxed, personable and lively, and he places equal emphasis on the follower’s role as well as the leader’s. Technique and the essence of tango, both fundamental to dancing well, are stressed in whatever step is being shown. Ney is dedicated to inspiring students to dance tango with feeling, musicality, cadencia, and connection – the way it is danced in Buenos Aires.
Ney’s tango inspiration and training came from the master couple “Javier Rodriguez y Andrea Missé” and other Argentine masters of the salon style of tango. In 2007, he and his long-time partner Jennifer Bratt established a tango school in the Nob Hill section of San Franciso which reintroduced the traditional salon style to the young generation of West Coast tango dancers. In 2011, they moved back to New York City in order to be closer to their families.
After Jennifer took a break from teaching and performing tango in 2011, Ney went on to partner with Maestras Cecilia Gonzalez and Virginia Pandolfi on teaching tours to Iceland, Australia, Germany, and Italy.
Ney and Jennifer will be teaching Workshops on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon, a pre-Milonga workshop on Saturday evening and they will perform at a very special HARTS Milonga, also on Saturday evening. The workshops will focus on technique and musicality as pertaining to Vals and Milonga.
More details regarding venue, times, costs and workshops descriptions will be provided soon.
