Brian Nguyen and Yuliana Basmajyan

Performance at Solar Culture

January 21-22, 2012

Weekend Workshop

We met this special couple last year at the Tucson Tango Festival where they impressed us with their dance and their passion for the dance. Since then we have spent time with them both on and off the dance floor. Brian and Yuliana's teaching philosophy is intelligent and skillfully applied. Come and join us in Tucson to meet this couple. You will be just as impressed as we were!
