We had the pleasure to have Brigitta Winkler this week-end in Durham. Jason Laughlin of tangophilia brings her to the area once a year. Brigitta is a beautiful and well-known tango teacher, and dancer from Berlin.
However when you are around Brigitta she is….way more.
Brigitta will acknowledge you anywhere she will see you whether it is in a coffee shop, or at a very popular tango festival. She is one of this people who I love. Yes of course I love her as a dancer, but more I love her as a person. She is humble, kind, and a positive teacher.
When you meet teachers like Brigitta Winkler, Alicia Pons, Tomas Howlin, Korey and Adeline Ireland, Rosa Corisco, Rachel Greenberg and Fabias Salas to name a few, you know they are from a different league.
Not just in their dancing, but also in their respect for others people whoever they are….And that is what I call a teacher.
Enjoy these photos I took during the workshop and the performance of Brigitta and Jason.
