Learning tango at LA Tango Academy has been a life changing experiences for me. Before enrolling, I couldn’t dance, I had no rhythm and musicality. In less than two years with LATA I see a gigantic difference between the person I was before and the one I am today. I can now dance to the rhythm of music, and that is huge for me. I look forward to every class and every practica. Emma and Richard, thank you, thank you, thank you so so much.
Liz Hutchinson began her dance training in Seattle at the age of 3, studying ballet, modern and contemporary dance, contact improv, and many other styles. She received her BA in Dance and BS in Math from the University of Washington and has since focused on Argentine tango. Her 25+ years of dance experience, knowledge of anatomy, and geometer's brain have strongly informed and shaped her into a unique and powerful tango dancer.
Liz began teaching tango in 2011 in Seattle. She
has since taught workshops, performed, and DJ'd around the US,
Europe, and Argentina. From 2017-2019 she managed and taught
classes at Rose City Tango Academy in Portland, OR. And in 2019,
she relocated to Los Angeles and began teaching with LA Tango
Liz's classes focus on fine-tuning and perfecting the fundamental movements of tango and the subtleties of communication and connection. The goal is to create anatomically sound movement and a connected and organized partnership, which opens up the possibilities for more complex and better feeling improvisation. Her friendly and analytical approach, paired with the rigor of her sometimes intense dance training style, make her an asset in the tango classroom.
