Melina Mistral: July 9-10, 2022

We are proud to announce that Melina Mistral will be back in Ottawa this July! She is so enjoyable to dance with as both an empowered follower and as a leader, and has earned a reputation as a highly effective, caring teacher. She will be offering workshops for followers AND couples, as well as private lessons.

She previously visited Ottawa in July 2019, and we’re so excited to be working together again.


“Praised for her elegance and power as a dancer, respected as a pedagogical and dedicated teacher, Melina’s passion for Argentine Tango is undeniable. She is based in Montreal, but travels throughout North America and Europe, performing in festivals, giving workshops, and DJ’ing. Melina’s body knowledge came from years of martial arts training and sports and added much to her tango journey. Impatient for more coaching, she continued her studies with teachers from all over the world and took many classical ballet and Pilates classes to complement her dance. She has since then worked with different dancers, such as Ney Melo (NYC), Cristian Sierra (Chile), and Jorge Olguin (BsAs / BC). She has also explored both the leader and follower’s roles in the dance, making her a strong solo teacher and versatile dancer.” You can view videos of her performances here.
