When she isn’t traveling throughout North America, Europe and Martinique, performing in festivals, giving workshops and DJ’ing, Melina Mistral teaches in Montreal. She takes great care in transferring her passion and knowledge of the argentine dance to her students and she believes Tango should be accessible to everyone.
Melina took her first steps in Tango at 18 years old, in her neighbourhood studio Montango, where she taught for 4 years. She took many classical ballet and Pilates classes throughout her dancing years to compliment her dance. She has since then worked with different dancers (such as Ney Melo, Marcelo “El Chino” Gutierrez, and Raphaël Baron) and has explored both the leader and follower’s roles in the dance, making her a strong solo teacher. She is known for being an elegant and strong dancer, as well as an invigorating and meticulous teacher. She doesn’t currently teach in any school, but gives workshops in different Studios of Montreal. She is available for private and group classes.
