About Guillermo García:

See Guillermo dancing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATGQ5qIxBlQ

Guillermo García is a tango dancer, musician and electrical engineer from Argentina. He has been teaching tango dance in the Bay Area for seventeen years, and his weekly San Francisco class has been running since 2007.

Guillermo started playing guitar at age ten, learning from tango guitarists in Argentina. In 2001 he prompted the creation of Trio Garufa, with whom he has recorded three albums and performed extensively in the USA, Argentina, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Colombia and Canada. He also performs tango music as a solo guitarist and in other ensembles.

Guillermo holds an MS from Université d’Orsay in Paris and a Ph.D. from Stanford University in electrical engineering. His doctoral dissertation was on de-noising algorithms for musical audio restoration.

Guillermo believes that everyone can dance tango if the approach is musical, and that most of us tend to encounter the same challenges along the learning curve. His teaching method is influenced by both his engineering and musical backgrounds.
