Brigitta Winkler is a curious woman. She has been studying, exploring and living tango with passion for the last 30 years. She was one of the first Europeans to study Tango in Buenos Aires in the early 1980's and following that, in 1986, she contributed to the Berlin tango scene by opening (one of) the first tango studio in the city. She is also a founding member of Tango Mujer Dance Company (an all-women dance company regularly performing in the US). She spent 4 years in the training of Body-Mind Centering® Since 1995 - with her home base in New York City - she has been busy touring and teaching all over North America. www.brigittatango.de

Katherine Gorsuch's hybrid expression of movement is derived from the many dance influences in her life. She received her formal dance training at Ballet Hispanico in New York City. At 17, she began dancing tango. She is currently based in Berlin. If not dancing contemporary dance or training with circus aerial arts, she can be found teaching classes at „Tango Tanzen Macht Schön“. Coming from a diverse background, Katherine believes in a well-rounded multidisciplinary form of training. Understanding one's body in one movement form enriches all others. Elements of these different movement techniques can be seen in her style of teaching.
