For the first time ever, we are welcoming Alicia Pons and Luis Rojas to Madison, WI for a weekend of intense workshops on May 23rd and 24th, 2015!!
Alicia Pons is an elegant and accomplished dancer with a refined technique and distinctive personality. Her ability to imbue the role of the woman with verve and style has made her one of the most sought after female partners in Buenos Aires milongas.
She is most noted for her beautiful foot play and the strongly sensual connection with her partner, which is done with humor and decorum. She exemplifies communication and presence in the dance, and this is a focus in her teaching for both men and women.
Luis Rojas has taught and danced tango since 2004 and studied with maestro Jorge Firpo until 2007 in Mar Del Plata. He moved to Buenos Aires and soon after began teaching and dancing tango there. He traveled to Europe in 2009, where he has taught and performed in Italy, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil and Finland.
He has been DJing for many years in the milongas of Buenos Aires, Italy, Brussels and Amsterdam. He continues to tour Europe on a regular basis , and now returns to the US to teach and perform. His musical dance and close passionate embrace has also made him a sought after dance partner.
