Phyllis Harris has been a full time dance instructor in the Richmond area for 26 years. In the mid-1990's , she became fascinated with the beauty & intimacy of Argentine Tango, and through a very successful collaboration with fellow dancer/instructors, Barry & Ann Kahn, the first tango workshops in the Richmond area were begun......and a fledgling tango community was born.
Ms. Harris is well versed in the leading and following skills necessary to dance and teach Tango, [as well as WCS--- another personal favorite] and shares her knowledge with passion and humor. From making the greenest beginner feel confident, to helping more experienced dancers embrace their personal creativity, her goal as an instructor is to make the learning process fun, as well as highly productive.
