Mike Malixi and Carrie Field have been teaching Argentine Tango in Taos since 2009. Mike has been dancing Tango for 9 years while Carrie has been dancing Tango for 6 years. They have traveled to Buenos Aires many times to study from master instructors and bring their experience home. Mike and Carrie’s dance and teaching style has been influenced by their studies with Gustavo Naveira, Julio Balmaceda, Corina de la Rosa, Fabian Salas, Carolina del Rivera, Cecila Garcia, and David Cohen.
Carrie has taught Pilates, Yoga and Gyrotonic® for the last 20 years and holds certifications in all three practices. Carrie incorporates her technical understanding of the body in her Tango teaching. Mike’s Tango teaching is influenced by his years of study in martial arts. Together they are committed to building a community of dancers in Taos where they offer weekly classes, practicas and organize monthly dance events.
“The dance competition for women and men is broken down by age group and dance style. These include for men, the traditional, fancy, grass, and most recently, chicken dances; and the women, the traditional, fancy shawl, and jingle dress dances. The “traditional” dance style can sometimes be separated or combined into a Northern and Southern dance style. Age categories include: Golden, Adult, Teens, Juniors, and sometimes Tiny Tots.”
