GLYKERIA’S TANGO BIO:
Glykeria Manis has been studying Argentine Tango for over 13 years. Given her background with two graduate psychology degrees, Glykeria went on to obtain her third graduate degree in the study of dance & movement therapy with a focus on the benefits of Argentine Tango to our health and well-being. Her classes and workshops are enriched with this knowledge, offering a supportive learning environment and promoting the art of connection. Moreover, Glykeria strives to infuse her teaching with somatic awareness, emphasizing balance, elegance, solid technique and creativity.
Glykeria began her Argentine Tango journey in NYC and Buenos Aires and has been living and teaching Tango in PDX since 2014. She is the co-host and principal instructor at Norse Hall (NE 11th Ave), The Viscount Studio (720 SE Sandy Blvd) & Shawn Gardner’s “The Ballroom” (8900 SW Commercial St., Tigard). Glykeria recently launched a brand new Tango community in The Gorge- White Salmon, WA.
“Argentine Tango is not only as an art form and social dance but also, a vehicle to explore non-verbal communication that increases attunement to ourselves and to others”.
