Kara and Dominic

Kara Wenham

Kara came to tango in 2000 and since then has been going ever deeper into this dance form both as a dancer and as a teacher. She learned, trained and worked as a dancer/teacher in Buenos Aires where she lived for eleven years and was affected not just by the many wonderful teachers and dancers along the way, but also by the culture itself. She danced for seven years with Matias Facio and then another seven years with Javier Antar. These two partnerships powerfully shaped both her dancing and pedagogy for the past fourteen years. With them, she traveled and attended prestigious festivals and schools both in Buenos Aires and around the globe.

 

Dominic Bridge

Dominic started dancing in 2005 at the age of eighteen in the United States. Completely taken by tango, a year later he packed his bags for Buenos Aires. From the beginning, his focus on connection, action-reaction, energy, and emotion as something to be studied and cultivated has had a deep influence on his dancing and teaching. Dominic began teaching in Europe when he assumed instruction of tango school in Florence in 2008. In 2010 he moved to Paris, and from 2011-2013 partnered with Sigrid Van Tilbeurgh, featuring in various eminent tango festivals. His career became increasingly international, with artistic residencies and tango school-building in Florence, Paris, Moscow, Budapest, Portland, and now Berlin. With over ten years dedicated to teaching, a background in music and psychology, Dominic’s passion for teaching continues to grow constantly, having worked with thousands of students in over fifteen countries.
