Sean Dockery and Charity Lebrón, Tango instructors
Sean and Charity share both a passion for Argentine Tango and a deep desire to pass all they know along to their students. Each class they teach has a well thought out pedagogy based on each of their experiences in teaching and learning dance and music.
Sean Dockery's enthusiasm for Argentine Tango has driven him to explore tango on its deepest levels, dancing and studying tango almost every day over the past 3 years. He first started exploring the dance in order to help him better understand Tango music, which he had begun playing on the guitar. However, after a few short months, the dancing became his main source of drive and inspiration. He spent 3 ½ months in Buenos Aires where he intensively studied Tango dance and music. Upon returning from Argentina Sean worked intensively with Homer Ladas. He has studied with many of the most avant-garde tango Instructors in the world and now enjoys sharing his love for the dance with students. Sean also enjoys DJing traditional and alternative mixes at milongas and practicas in the bay area.
Charity Lebrón began dancing in 1999 when she took her two left feet to a ballroom dance teacher training class. There a fellow trainee told her of the wonders of Argentine Tango and she attended her first class with Homer Ladas. Though she quickly became obsessed with Tango, she continued to study and teach other many dances including Salsa, Swing, and all of the American Style Ballroom Dances. This has given her a unique and open-minded perspective on connection, musicality, and body mechanics. She has developed a passion for discovery, innovation, and sharing with others, while maintaining a respect and love for Argentine Tango's roots. In 2005 she moved to San Francisco and began traveling and teaching with Homer Ladas to help inspire tango communities across the U.S., in Canada, and Puerto Rico. She has studied with some of the most creative and innovative teachers Tango has to offer. Charity thoroughly enjoys sharing her knowledge and helping new students as well as seasoned tango dancers take there dance to new heights.
