Alex has taught in 10 countries and over 80 cities for more than two decades. He has studied in Buenos Aires for over a year across 9 visits. He has played the bandoneon and directed various tango bands since 2001 releasing 7 albums and collaborating with talented musicians around the world, including Alberto Podesta. Most importantly though, teaching tango is Alex’s primary passion. He loves sharing his love of the dance and culture, watching students grow, and connecting with people.

Alex loves teaching students of all levels and gives students the basics they need to enjoy the dance quickly and successfully.

He also hosts one of Portland’s most popular milongas every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at his studio:
