For the readers, a little background on Thomas & Hana:Thomas Reale has been a professional tango dancer and teacher since 1997. His inspired and spontaneous dance style is a striking expression of elegance and sensuality, showing in every step how sophisticated and spellbinding Tango can be. As a teacher he is known for making Tango accessible to his students. He concentrates on essence, musicality, creativity, posture, balance and communication between the partners, distilling the essentials of Tango learned first hand from dancers of the older generation.He has practiced internal martial arts and various forms of dance all of his life. His gift has been an uncanny ability to reach the very essence of these arts as well as the art of Tango, allowing the audience to perceive as effortless the most complex movements. The martial arts primary principle: “economy of motion equals maximum efficiency “ seamlessly applies to his vision of tango.
He has studied with Tango teachers of diverse backgrounds such as: Carlos Gavito, Puppy Castello, Osvaldo Zotto, Miguel Zotto, Graciela Gonzalez, Guillermina Quiroga and Roberto Reis, Pablo Veron, Omar Vega, , Julio Balmaceda, Roberto Herrera, Mingo Pugliese, Giselle-Anne and Gustavo Naveira, Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo and Tete among others. However as he himself states, he has learned the most at the milongas of Buenos Aires and New York.
His teaching and performance engagements in NYC include: Carnegie Hall, La Belle Epoque in a guest performance with Susana Miller, Consulate of Argentina, Essex House Hotel, Univision T.V. , CBS special program with Mariela Franganillo, Maury Poviche Show, Four Seasons Hotel, Parco P.I., T.V. Show and The Palace Hotel. In Miami, he performed at Dance Masters of North Miami, Second Miami Tango-Thon, Baile on the Beach and Fontainebleau Hilton in Miami Beach.
Hana Nar is a well-rounded dancer with her roots in classical ballet since the age of five and her study of modern ballet as well as Oriental / Arabic dance and African dance, she entered tango as the ultimate dance-form which allows for the expression of personality and dialogue with a partner. With her background as a designer, Hana adds a refined aesthetic sense and brings out the purity and precision of the body's lines in the dance form. She has studied under Millena Brufman, Lorena Ermocida, Giselle-Anne and Gustavo Naveira, Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo, Roberto Herrera and her partner Thomas Reale.
Thomas and Hana enjoy teaching together in NYC and sharing the gift of dance with their students at all levels.
