Bio: Richard Council began dancing tango in 2001 and has since taught and performed on stage and television throughout the United States and abroad. In 2003 he, with partner Colette Hebert, won the US IDO Argentine Tango Championships in Miami, Florida. They were finalists in the Tango Salon division and semi-finalists in the Stage Performance division of the World Championships held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2005. He has been an invited performer on the Susana Gimenez Show in Argentina, the Tango Libertad Festival in Japan and many milongas and theaters in those countries as well as all over the United States. He has taught and performed at the Portland Tango festivals a number of times. In addition to performing with Hebert in the short film “The Heart of Tango” he has also had the pleasure to share the stage with company members of Tango X 2, Forever Tango, Tango Fire, Tango Argentino and more.
Richard’s reputation as a tango dancer and educator has begun to spread to more and more cities around the United States. He makes every effort to break concepts down into a manageable yet sophisticated vocabulary encouraging others to dance to their fullest potential and with their own voice. He is appreciated for his elegant approach to tango and the clear and precise methodology of his teaching. Richard continues to sharpen his skills as a dancer and teacher so that he might educate others in the rich language that is Argentine Tango.
