Felipe & Ayano came together in the tango scene of the San Francisco Bay Area, and embody the global nature of tango, traveling full-time throughout North America, Europe, South America, and Asia to teach, DJ, and lecture about the music. They also spend time annually in Buenos Aires studying and enjoying the dance and its history.
Felipe's background includes a degree in education and more than 20 years of experience in tango and is widely renowned for his clear teaching strategy, enthusiastic personality, and ability to make real improvements in your dancing.
Ayano has been dancing tango since 2005 and is an accomplished and motivated dancer, with excellent movement technique and musicality. She has been teaching with Felipe for the past few years around the US.
Together, their demonstrations are clear and precise, offering students an excellent model of movement. Both Felipe and Ayano lead and follow interchangeably which is invaluable for teaching. Their series at Stanford University and their classes at The Beat in Berkeley are always in high demand, which is a tribute to their teaching excellence and wide appeal.
Based in San Francisco, Ayano travels and dances in milongas around the world including her annual pilgrimage to Buenos Aires.
She regularly DJs at the local milongas in San Francisco such as El Valenciano, Genesis, The Beat, as well as at Milonga de Nora, Alberto's and Milonga Rubia. She has been invited to DJ in Tokyo, Taipei, Maui Embrace Tango Festival, Pasional The Third Coast Tango Marathon, Holiday Tango in DC, Ronda De Ases in Portland, Marathon Z, San Diego Tango Marathon, La Mujeres Tango Marathon and Ann Arbor Tango Marathon.
