Ivan Shvarts is the founder of the Senior Tango Program in the Bay Area. He has been the official tango instructor for San Francisco Parks and Recreation since 2006. He teaches both group and private classes in Emeryville, San Francisco, and Redwood City. Ivan is committed to providing a welcoming space for dancers of all levels and ages to develop their tango skills while simultaneously growing a community built on a celebration of movement and music. He is interested in how tango is a physical, emotional, and psychological dance that works out the body, the brain, and the soul. His teachers have included Puppy Castello, Nestor Ray, Tete Rusconi, and Gustavo Naveira with whom he studied the techniques of traditional Milonguero style.
Golden Age Tango Academy is committed to encouraging and educating seniors and other individuals, regardless of age or ability, to learn how to dance tango. Our classes benefit seniors and others physically, mentally and socially. Scholarship to dancers with disabilities
