In 2009 the UN declared Tango to be among the world's protected cultural heritage. It has become an international dance phenomenon with large dance communities in the unlikeliest of places, such as Shanghai, Taipei and Istanbul. Its elegance and structure creates a common language that is danced to the same music worldwide. This international community includes Cleveland and Cleveland State University.
Daniel Trenner is one of Tango's modern pioneers.He happened on Tango in Buenos Aires in 1986 while he was teaching jazz and improvisation at the State School of Contemporary Dance in the San Martin Theatre. He was one of the first dozen young people involved in tango's revival. He studied with, interviewed, filmed and organized for many of the Milongueros, the older generation dancers. He has been called a "Johnny Appleseed of Tango" for his 20 years of touring as a Tango teacher, visiting more than 100 cities on 4 continents. He created the first Tango tours to Buenos Aires (Bridge to the Tango, bringing more than 1500 people dancing in 7 countries), and the first Tango store in North America (The Tango Catalogue). He has produced more than 80 volumes of Tango Instructional Video with more than 40 artists (BttTV).
Before tango, Trenner was a tap dancer for more than 10 years with Brenda Bufalino and Leon Collins. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts and is presently teaching at Smith College, Amherst College and Mt Holyoke College. For details, visit http://www.danieltrenner.com/.
