Stephen Shortnacy and Paola Aguillon are personal-growth enthusiasts who teach and perform Argentine tango in Austin, Texas.
They continually improve themselves so they can deliver experiences that help empower their students to connect, find beauty, and grow through their journey of becoming tango dancers and the greatest versions of themselves.
Tango is a subtle art of nonverbal communication that we can share with others and nurture through patience, practice, awareness, and kindness. Each time we dance, we have a chance to tell a story. And if we desire, every day we have a chance to live a better story. How we communicate with ourselves and others helps us to write our narratives in life as well as in tango. Our journey is determined by our goals, those with whom we choose to collaborate, and the unexpected.
Does this sound like an adventure for you? Are you ready to write your story and take a journey into the world of tango?
