Finding Fluidity in FunTango
Jean’s goal: Inspire and share her exuberance for tango, teaching YOU how to go about learning the “language” of tango--finding your personal style, your own expression-- not simply to imitate... how to find connection while embracing the sensuality, fluidity & fun in Argentine tango.
Begin now your ever-expanding tango-journey!
Jean Fung, a former research scientist, “converted” to work committed to movement, tango and healing, now teaches Argentine Tango & Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® and is also a Certified Reiki Practitioner. Jean began partner dancing over 16 years ago to recover from injuries, and once she “happened on” the tango, she’s found her home and has been tangoing for over 12 years. As one of the tango “pioneers” in the USA, she can claim much credit for creating the tango community in the greater Philadelphia area and now, in Bermuda. In her pioneer work here she brought in a virtual who’s who of performers and master teachers of tango to the area. She gratefully acknowledges the inspiration and training received from the following luminaries (and now great personal friends) of the tango world and among them are: Brigitte Winkler, Cacho Dante, Carlos Gavito, Daniela & Armando, Daniel Trenner, Eric Jorrisen, Ester, Mingo & Pablo Pugliese, Fabian Salas, Gullermina Quiroga, Gustavo Naviera, Juan Carlos Copes, Lorena Ermocida, Nito & Elba, Osvaldo Zotto, Pepito & Suziki, Rebecca Shulman, and Rudolfo Dinzel.
She has lectured on the history of the dance and tango music at Community College of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She has also taught tango in a variety of other settings, and along with her continued teaching and organizing in the Philadelphia area, is currently affiliated with the NYC studio, Dance Manhattan, perhaps THE outstanding tango teaching institution in the US.
