About Jenna & Dominic:
In the last three years, Jenna has taught and performed around the U.S. with Joe Leonardo, Alex Krebs, Felipe Martinez, and Dominic Bridge. In the summer of 2008, Jenna taught at the Tango Mango Festival in Devonshire, England with Portland's own Rebecca Smith. In February 2009, she performed with Alex Krebs at the Maui TangoFest, and in the summer of 2009, she performed with Dominic Bridge at Chicago Tango Week as well as in Florence, Italy.
In four years Dominic Bridge became one of the top young tango professionals in the world. In this time, he has performed up and down the west and east coasts, Chicago Tango Week ’09, Italy, and Buenos Aires, as well as in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Dominic has spent the last year building a tango school and teaching full time in Florence, Italy. When his weekends were free, he took trips around Europe, spending a significant amount of time in Paris, Rennes, Berlin, Bäsel, Siracusa, and Catania. Dominic views tango in the same way he views any language: there are clear structure, grammar, and rules, all of which can be broken when understood. He knows these things form a foundation necessary in communicating in one’s own way. His effectiveness as a teacher grows from his deep understanding of movement and his ability to clearly communicate.
