Jay and Rachel.jpg

J Abling has been teaching tango for almost 25 years. Drawing on his knowledge from fields such as martial arts, body mechanics, and music, J has a metaphor that fits every situation and every student. Rachel Moon has been an avid social dancer for over 25 years, and fell in love with tango in 2009. In 2015, she spent 6 months training in Buenos Aires and, soon after her return, began teaching with J in the DC area. Since that time, they have traveled to teach and DJ across the U.S. and in Europe. From 2020-2022, J and Rachel focused primarily on Tango Music Trainer, an online musicality training program. They are now based in Minneapolis.

While J analyzes and breaks down complex movements and concepts through an arsenal of visuals and metaphors, Rachel brings a focus on kinesthetic learning, striving to translate the feeling of tango and help students acquire new muscle memory. Together, J and Rachel provide a holistic, multi-sensory learning experience.
