Workshops focusing on follower’s techniques, MUJER is a series of movement and technique workshops, designed to focus first with in-depth mastery of movement.
April began her journey into the world of Argentine tango in 2003 in Buenos Aires. She immediately fell in love with the music, and then the dance when she took her first class there. After taking classes for some time when she returned to the US, April joined Barbara Durr’s class in 2005. She studied primarily with Barbara, and during this time, she began to develop her own dance.
