A native of Maryland, Liz began her tango journey in 2005 in Montevideo, Uruguay, where she lived for two years, teaching English and improving her Spanish. In that lesser-known co-birthplace of tango, across the river from Buenos Aires, she studied the dance with Aníbal Domínguez, Mauricio Borgarello, Regina Chiappara and Martín Borteiro, and Eduardo Ferrar and Gabriela Farías. She has studied with Argentine masters Chicho Frumboli and Juana Sepulveda, Pablo Rodriguez and Corina Herrera, Martín Maldonado and Maurizio Ghella, and Juan Cantone and Sol Orozco. Stateside influences include Jake Spatz, Aja Fenn, and Sharna Fabiano. As an instructor, Liz prioritizes creating a sense of community and play while emphasizing comfort, versatility, floor craft, and musicality.
