and sublime. Mong-Lan, Vietnamese-born artist, singer and musician,
with remarkable dexterity and talent, interprets the tango with deep feeling
as if she were a porteña, from Buenos Aires. With Enrique Santillan,
Argentine virtuoso guitarist accompanying her, they form a captivating
and memorable duo.

"I left Lan's classes full of ideas, concepts and exercises that were very useful for me in my own dancing of the tango." -Ernesto V.

"Lan's classes are fun and interesting -- I was able to better understand the Argentine tango in ways never before." -Jim S.

"That was a great class: I feel energized, and ready for more! I feel that Lan really knows the tango, and knows how to explain it and teach it well." -Ana T.

"Lan is the quintessential tango dancer who knows the dynamics of the tango, knows how the body works, and knows how to teach the connection so necessary to dance the tango well." -Sandra B.
