Amanda Archuleta’s dance path began in Albuquerque, NM at a very young age. She began dancing Classical Ballet and Contemporary, which led her to years of performing and competing. Later her interest shifted to partner dancing, and she began learning Swing, Salsa, Bachata, and many other ballroom dances, which eventually led her to Argentine Tango. Amanda’s full-time focus on Argentine Tango began in 2005, and she later moved to Buenos Aires to further study this dance. She has studied under many greats with her major influence coming from Fabian Peralta, Virgina Pandolfi, and Horacio Godoy. Since then, Amanda has taught at festivals and workshops all over the U.S. Most recently she has worked with Jay Abling, Robin Thomas and Ney Melo, which gives her a nice diversity of style and technique.
What's Argentine Tango?
Argentine Tango is the musical genre and dance that originated in Buenos Aires, Argentina in the early 1900s. The music and the dance flourished until the 1960s when it's popularity was eclipsed by rock n'roll and other popular music of that time. To further it's decline, the political upheaval in Argentina during that time made it illegal to have gatherings. Thus, a whole generation of Argentines grew up not learning how to dance tango.In the mid-80s, Argentine tango experienced a resurgence in popularity and Argentine tango teachers started traveling around the world and spreading the dance. The dance also made it's way onto university campuses (embraced especially by engineering students) and now there are tango student clubs at Harvard, MIT, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and Michigan. Nowadays, it is possible to travel to any major city in the world, embrace a stranger, and dance the tango! We at Brooklyn Tango are not only professional dancers who get invited around the world to teach and perform, we are also social tango dancers who care about the growth of our tango community: NYC!
