After discovering tango in 2001, she has been dancing and studying the art of tango in the USA, Europe and Argentina with the best modern and traditional tango teachers.

Shelley Brooks has been dancing Tango since late 2004, and enjoys all styles of the embrace. She is a committed and active member of Tango Evolution, and believes that you dance with your community as well. She brings with her years of classical ballet training, as well as jazz, modern,tap, African, hip-hop, and Salsa, and studies in choreography, kinesiology, music, dance history, and has taught various dance/exercise programs over the years.With the understanding that technique and body mechanics are of utmost importance, you must never forget the dance, the energy, and how you move through space to the music.
