Jeff Allan & Sari Lievonen
Sari Lievonen and Jeff Allan have hugely influenced the development of the Glaswegian Tango scene over the past decade. As founders of the Glasgow Tango Studio, they work together as teachers, performers and event organizers, also collaborating with institutions such as Dance House and the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA).
They teach the style of Argentine Tango best suited to dancing socially which is essentially improvised as opposed to learning set routines.
In addition to their vast knowledge of Tango culture and practice, Sari has worked for over 20 years as a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer in various projects and productions in Scotland and overseas. Alongside Tango, she specialises in Contemporary, Jazz and Tap Dance.
