John Miller & Jesica Cutler

They have an easy rapport with students, extensive knowledge of technique and structure, and superb understanding of body mechanics and movement.

When the realization struck, he decided to pursue Tango as a career and has been teaching full time since 2009.

Rebecca’s Tango journey began in 1999 while pursuing her BFA at the University of Oregon. All these years later and her feet keep dancing!! From 2000 Rebecca has lived and taught Tango within numerous communities in the USA, and around the world. After 5 years teaching in Berlin, she is back in the USA, settled in Portland, OR.
As a teacher Rebecca has always believed in the transformative process of learning Tango and is fueled by the metamorphosis of her students.
Starting her tango career in Portland (OR), tango has taken Jennifer all over the world: to Europe, Argentina, Uruguay, and extensively throughout the United States and Canada.
Now based in San Francisco, Jennifer has toured for over a decade out of the two decades she has spent dancing tango, spreading her love of tango where ever she went.
Skilled in both leading and following, Jennifer frequently teaches alone, but has also taught regularly with known tango masters Alex Krebs, Robin Thomas, Evan Griffiths, Damian Lobato, and Martín Bel.
Jennifer's dance is characterized by her desire to strive for versatility. Since tango is a social dance, she believes it is integral to master not only close and open embrace, but also everything in-between. Furthermore, after having a connected and comfortable embrace, nothing is more important to Jennifer than the music. This is transmitted in her teaching, as she approaches every class with a strong command over the music.
