Adam and Ciko are unique to the North American tango scene, and have had the opportunity to study with teachers from all over the world with very different ideologies, which has fostered their own approach to dance and dance instruction. Their style is defined by its sensuality, musicality and creative playfulness. As teachers, they transmit their mastery of the complex concepts of tango while retaining their innate humor and humility.
