Jaimes Friedgen is the one of the world's most widely respected Tango dancers and teachers. Starting his Tango teaching and performing career in Los Angeles in 1996, Jaimes has been around long enough to be considered a major influence on many of the professional dancers in the U.S. today. His nearly two decades of experience have made him one of the most effective teachers ever and have taught him the warmth, patience and humility of a true master. After many years away, Jaimes is finally returning to his hometown to offer his extraordinary system of teaching and dancing, and to continue his own study of Tango with his family and friends.
Having taught and performed with a variety of partners for years in the Seattle area, Christa Rodriguez stunned the tango world with her debut performance with Jaimes Friedgen at the Yale Tango Festival in April of 2009. She began touring regularly with Friedgen and was immediately embraced by the international tango scene as an extraordinary talent in the classroom, with a direct, no-nonsense teaching style both effective and charming for serious students of the dance.
