Jaimes Friedgen and Christa Rodriguez

Jaimes Friedgen and Christa Rodriguez in Vilnius !!!
Jaimes is one of the most inspiring tango dancers in the United States. Over many years he has studied with a wide variety of teachers, but his two main influences are Angel Echeveria and Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli. He is sought out for his creativity and deep insight into the inner workings of the dance. A dancer of extraordinary accomplishment, Jaimes is hailed for his beautiful movement and musicality. He is driven to be a full time tango teacher by his love of watching people continually grow and blossom through their exploration of tango, and feels very fortunate to be a part of that process.
Christa has been dancing for over many years, she is an extraordinary teacher and dancer. She is one of the most influential dancers in the city of Seattle and serves as the primary inspiration for a whole generation of dancers. Christa takes great pride in the progress of her students and continues to pursue her study of dance as a student and a teacher.

Their visit will further our dream of creating more tango dancers and taking the dance skills of those who already dance to the next level.

In addition to all the classes & workshops we are going to have both teachers at our milongas.
