About Tango Sueño and Gem Duras

Tango Sueño Academy is the premier Argentine Tango school in Connecticut, serving elite dancers for more than 18 years under the direction of Gem Duras. The group and private lessons focus on authentic Argentine Tango as danced and performed in the halls of Buenos Aires. The classes take place in Stamford, New Haven, Hartford and Danbury metropolitan as well as Westchester NY.

Gem has been dancing tango for 26 years and teaching professionally since 2003. In 1990's he studied with the original cast members of the famous show Forever Tango, in particular the legendary Carlos Gavito. He then visited Buenos Aires numerous times to study advanced technique, ballet and stage tango with younger Forever Tango stars Francisco Forquera and Jesus Velazquez, receiving his tango certificate.

Over many years he became familiar with the styles of such important and diverse dancers as Mariano "Chicho" Frumboli, Gustavo Naveira, Susana Miller, Javier Rodriguez, Osvaldo Zotto, Norberto "Pulpo" Esbrez, Carlos Rivarola, Juan Carlos Copes, Dana Frigoli and Milena Plebs. As a result he is able to teach and guide the students in various tango styles such as Salon, Milonguero, Nuevo and beyond.

Although Tango Sueño Academy offers choreography and performance classes for more advanced students, the essence of tango "where the two partners become one" is never forgotten, with the goal of enabling the students to dance with others at local tango events and throughout the world including Buenos Aires.

Gem follows the current trends in tango by visiting Buenos Aires multiple times each year and inviting Argentine guests to the Connecticut Tango Festival, which he organizes annually with Tango Sueño co-founder Dale Ellison.
