Gabriel Gaumond

Gabriel fell in love with tango as soon as he learned how to take a side step. He realized then, the infinite potential for creative expression available through this dance, and has dedicated his life ever since to mastering this skill and sharing it with others. Gabriel feels most fulfilled when he is teaching, helping his students reach their tango goals. One of his favorite experiences is that of witnessing the look on someone’s face when they finally understand something in the dance that they had been struggling with before. Gabriel is talented at troubleshooting steps and finding solutions to complex figures, regardless of whether their style or aesthetic fits his own. He believes that tango is a language we speak with our bodies and he is particularly interested in exploring the subtleties of how this communication works. His favorite topics to teach are musical interpretation using the body as a medium for expression and the mechanics of connection.

Catrinel Iftode

Catrinel sees tango as an excellent tool for personal growth. She finds pleasure in noticing the ways in which her growth in tango has mirrored her inner journey of self improvement and discovery. She has a lot of fun noticing the similarities between the way a person dances and their personality, as well as the parallels between the challenges in one’s growth in tango and in life. Through dedication and practice, dancing tango can be a much lighter and more fun way to gain insight on many of our personal struggles. Seen as an embodiment practice, tango can help remove many of the physical, mental and emotional blocks that stand in the way of full freedom of expression. Catrinel hopes that through her teaching and dancing she can help others to feel confident, empowered and comfortable in their own skin.
