About this pro

I have been teaching tango almost 20 years. I started training on ballet and modern dance in Argentina and then I drifted to tango. I trained with the most respected teachers in Argentina. Please check my website at 

Known for her outstanding technique and grace, Makela stresses that tango comes from the heart as well as the body. For ladies, she focuses on what makes a woman dance more beautifully and easily. For men, she concentrates on what makes a man a confident and clear leader so that women will love to dance with him.

I love giving the gift of the passion of tango to people. I see people's transformation on how they carry themselves and become the best of what they can be.
