Tioma Maloratsky - DJ - NYC

ARTEM “TIOMA” MALORATSKY started his studies of tango in Miami, Florida, in 1994, where he later performed in the show “Tango Fever”. In 1996 he moved to New York and began frequent visits to Argentina, studying with such masters as Pupi Castello, Nito and Elba, Raul Bravo, Omar Vega, Guillermina Quiroga , Graciela Gonzales, Jorge Nel, Mariano Frumboli. His dancing is inspired in large part by the classic salon style of the 1940’s, which he has seeks out and studies during his prolonged stays in Buenos Aires.

As a teacher, Tioma is known for making the authentic salon style of tango accessible to his students. He concentrates on musicality, balance, connection between the partners, and improvisational techniques for social dancing. To enhance and refine his dancing, as well as to deepen his approach to teaching, Tioma has studied the Alexander Technique, Tai Chi, Nei Kung, Yoga, and Mindfulness meditation. He has been successfully applying his understanding of body dynamics to helping students improve their general movement coordination while learning how to dance. Tioma has authored the internationally acclaimed website tangoprinciples.org, which is used by tango teachers and enthusiasts around the world.

Tioma currently resides in New York City, teaches and performs at various tango venues, produces and DJs at the weekly tango event Ensueño, and also DJs at milonga La Nacional and various other tango events in New York City.

Ilene Marder - DJ - NYC

In addition to being the founder and director of Woodstock Tango, Ilene has established a reputation as a popular Tango DJ, who plays regularly at milongas & festivals in NYC and surrounding areas (i.e. La Nacional, All-Night Milonga, Esmeralda's, NYC Summer Tango Festival), with recent DJ jaunts to Boston, Chicago, Toronto, & Miami. She is one of the relatively few non-Argentines to DJ in Buenos Aires, including several full nights at Salon Canning, Porteño y Bailerin, and at the first Parque Patricios Festival.

She is a "traditional" musicalizadora (tango DJ) using cortinas, tandas and the most beautiful classic tango ever recorded. She is also adept at offering some lovely danceable surprises from the modern nuevo and alternative tango worlds, and has a heck of a good time djing tango, salsa and swing events! She conducts MEET THE MUSIC sessions to better acquaint dancers with the key orquesta's of the Golden Age, and composes tango sampler cd's for educational purposes.

Lung-Kuei Lin - DJ

While quietly going about this business, Lung-Kuei has attracted both envy and affection throughout the tango community. The men want to dance like him, and the women like to dance with him. His immersion in the tango world has been a happy success.

An integral part of the U.S. tango scene, he runs off to the best festivals and marathons across the country with tremendous zeal. As a result, he’s one of the more sought-after leaders in the country, and has also developed a keen sensitivity toward what makes a milonga go well. Although his dancing is already very clean and quite musical, he’s constantly working to make it more musical, more precise, and more lovely for his partner. His most influential teachers have been Rebecca Shulman, Robin Thomas, Evan Griffiths, Diego Di Falco, Silvina Valz and Horacio Godoy.

Lung-Kuei started deejaying in 2007. Gradually he built a solid reputation as a deejay and now he’s invited to spin tunes at the most popular and best milongas in town. Tango festivals and marathons fly him in to DJ. His choices are not strange: he just plays one good song after another, placed in sequence with sensitivity.

Lung-Kuei has zero attitude about what he does well, and always keeps a sense of humor about things, while remaining a serious milonguero, 100% dedicated to the craft, the life, and the music of tango.
