Glykeria Manis has been studying Argentine Tango over 14 years. Given her background with two graduate psychology degrees, Glykeria went on to obtain her third graduate degree in the study of dance & movement therapy with a focus on the benefits of Argentine Tango to our health and well-being.
Her classes and workshops are enriched with this knowledge, offering a supportive learning environment and promoting the art of connection. Moreover, Glykeria strives to infuse her teaching with somatic awareness, emphasizing balance, elegance, solid technique and creativity.
Glykeria began her Argentine Tango journey in NYC and Buenos Aires and has been living and teaching Tango in PDX since 2014. She is the co-host of the weekly Thursday social “Milonga La Divina” at The Village Ballroom, 704 NE Dekum St.
Glykeria is the creator/ founder of GREEK ISLAND TANGO ~ Annual Tango intensives/retreats on the beautiful island of Milos since 2013.
“Argentine Tango is not only an art form and social dance, but also a vehicle to explore non-verbal communication that increases attunement to ourselves and to others”.
