Eric Lindgren - March 2017


Tango Mercurio is thrilled to host Eric Lindgren in DC this Spring! 
Eric is a world-renowned teacher and a superb dancer, who brings with him a deep knowledge of tango technique as well as clear and precise language to describe movement, dynamics and musicality.

Eric's Bio

Eric fell in love with Tango in his first class. A month later he had moved to Buenos Aires to pursue the dance full time. In the decade since he has continued to explore the many unique avenues of style, technique, and self-expression that Argentine Tango offers.

Eric has taught, toured, and performed throughout the US and Europe and continues to revisit Buenos Aires regularly as source of inspiration and clarity. Eric is exceptional both for his endless willingness to re-examine his dance seeking new depth as well for as for the unusual breadth of his knowledge and experience. 

In classes, Eric focuses on pursuing presence, ease, expression, and pleasure, as the quickest and most rewarding paths to further our understand of the dance.

Enjoy one of Eric's latest performances here.
