Shorey Myers

Shorey's first exposure to tango, watching a tall, skinny guy in a beret teach a group of awkward college kids how to walk with grace, immediately captured her imagination and she has hardly looked away since. Coming from a background in martial arts and classical music, she is driven by the desire to make her own movement as clean, fluid and musical as possible. She counts among her strongest influences Jaimes Friedgen, Cecilia González and Alex Krebs.

Shorey is an accomplished teacher whose primary goal is to give her students those tools necessary to make their dancing as enjoyable as possible in the shortest amount of time. As great as her love of the dance is her love of the music, a passion which is evident whenever she steps behind the DJ booth. She DJs all over the country (Portland, New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco, Seattle, Ann Arbor, etc). She loves to keep both very traditional and very alternative crowds dancing all night long.

Shorey is (for the forseeable future) based in the San Francisco Bay Area, though she still travels as much as is humanly possible.
