Born in Argentina, Daniel Arredondo may be credited with bringing authentic Argentine tango to Charlotte over 12 years ago.
His tango, and his teaching of the art form, is enriched by his background in martial arts, modern dance, folkloric dance, and competitive ballroom dance. In addition, his childhood memories of watching Argentinean tangueros in his home city of San Rafael, Mendoza, inform his dancing to this day.
Over the past 13 years, Daniel has studied with several world-renowned instructors including Facundo and Kely Posadas, Gloria and Eduardo Arquimbau, Osvaldo Zoto, Lorena Ermocida, Susana Miller, Horacio Arcidiacono, Alberto Paz and Valorie Hart, Jorge Firpo, Alicia Pons, Pablo Veron, Fabian Salas, Gustavo Naveira, Chicho Frumboli. He has performed in many national tango events including Atlanta Tango Exchange, Asheville Regional, Fiesta Latina in Asheville, Charlotte Latin Fest, Fiesta del Pueblo in Raleigh, Spoleto Tango Festival in Charleston, Argentine Embassy in Washington DC, and over the past several years has taught workshops in many cities including Atlanta, Raleigh, Virginia Beach, Columbia, Greensboro, Statesville, Monroe, and Asheville and has collaborated in Charlotte with the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Education Institute, Arts and Science Council, the Mint Museum, and the Levine Museum. Meanwhile, in Charlotte he hosts an ongoing free Monday night Intro to Tango class and Practica, Charlotte's longest-running tango event, offers weekly classes for dancers of all levels, and is the founder of Passion For Tango; an organization dedicated to teaching authentic Argentine Tango.
