Passion for Tango
Raj has been a Tango teacher since November 2011 and since April 2014 at SITA. His passion for Tango began in May 2010 when he attended his first class by chance.
Tango came at the right time in his life, after a traffic accident and a small set back in his business. He realized that Tango was for him and decided to do what he always wanted to do for long time and have a real passion apart from his professional life.
Though he is grateful to Auroville for starting his tango, he kept on searching for "elegance on embrace".
He went on to learn from different teachers in Greece, especially Vaggelis and Marianna, who have won Championship of European Salon Tango 2013. Pino and Caterina, Tango Maestros from Italia to whom he's really grateful for sharing their grace of tango, also played a great role in his Tango life.
Besides, his beloved and elderly teachers from Buenos Aires gave him a totally different teaching which made him grow in Tango.
Through months of practicing and learning, he started feeling the need to share Tango to corporate friends and to the community he had been brought up. He started classes in Pondicherry and Chennai. The quality of his teaching comes through embrace, posture, connection and interpretation of music.
Apart from Tanguero, he is a portfolio manager for retirement accounts in US through his successful trading career since 1995.
He takes weekly classes at SITA, so feel free to join!
