A brief bio of Eleonora:

Eleonora Kalganova is a unique, generous, sensitive, and kind teacher.

She grew up in post-Soviet Tashkent, Uzbekistan (part of the former Soviet Republic). She studied dance extensively from an early age: folk, ballroom, character, historic, ballet and modern.

After successfully completing 9 years of rigorous study, Eleonora graduated from the State Dance Academy in Tashkent and became a principal dancer with the prestigious Alisher Navoi Theater of Opera and Ballet.

Through this remarkable and rare educational experience she gained a solid understanding of movement, anatomy, music, performance and dance composition.

With time, Eleonora became increasingly fascinated and involved with Argentine tango. After years of study, with intelligence, passion, professional dedication, and her unique dance background, Eleonora started to develop a very special understanding of Argentine tango.

Eleonora believes in breaking from the rigidity of steps and memorization. She encourages students to develop improvisational skills through simple and dynamic techniques, achieve relaxed and released style, and most importantly, learn the joy of dance by relating, expressing, and communicating with her partner. She has been described by a reviewer as “the most talented and playful follow I have ever seen” and “it is rare when I watch a couple dance and ONLY focus on the woman. She is that kind of dancer”.

Eleonora travels extensively internationally, performing and conducting workshops around the world, where her famous Womens Technique classes bring out large numbers of eager fans. But she continues to be a student of life and tango.
