For over 15 years Angela Avila has been a prolific leader of the San Antonio Argentine tango community where she teaches and performs regularly with her husband, Roy Montejano. They share their tango knowledge by teaching technique with an emphasis on fundamentals and form. Their philosophy is "work on the foundation, make it strong, and everything else will fall into place." Angela and Roy believe that passion cannot grow without the opportunity to share it so they have fostered a community in which tango can grow and become a passion for others. Angela believes that each of us is called to express our creativity in our own way; for her it is through dance. She has become proficient in several forms of dance including Tango, Merengue, Salsa, Swing and Modern Dance. Of these, tango is her passion and her dedication for tango are apparent in her teaching and in her unique, but elegant dance style which never fails to captivate audiences.
