Meet Ney Melo
Ney Melo is an internationally renowned Argentine Tango teacher known for his innovative teaching methods and passion for teaching. His tango instruction is sought out by beginning and advanced dancers, as well as other teachers and choreographers from all over the world.
The atmosphere in his classes is relaxed, personable and lively, and he places equal emphasis on the lady’s role as the man’s. Technique and the essence of tango, both fundamental to dancing well, are stressed in whatever step is being shown. Ney is dedicated to inspiring students to dance tango with feeling, musicality, cadencia, and connection – the way it is danced in Buenos Aires. Ney’s tango inspiration and training came from the master couple “Javier Rodriguez y Andrea Missé” and other Argentine masters of the salon style of tango.
Ney grew up in New York City and received a scholarship to the prestigious Regis High School in Manhattan. After graduating from Binghamton University with a degree in Accounting, Ney worked for Lehman Brothers but, after September 11th, he discovered tango and left his career to pursue his dream in Buenos Aires. His story has been featured on Yahoo! News, NY Times (Sep 2011), and many other news publications.
