A Tango Chat with Jason Jiang

We get together with Jason Jiang, for some Tango chatting!
You know some times a friend can be the best mentor, and this is coming from me a dancer… Do you know what that means?
That most of the times I hate my partners…and then I realize how much, each of them has taught me..! haha

For example:
Tango is too beautiful, not to dance good! Jason Jiang

Jason Jiang is a good friend and active member from our community here in Toronto.

He has been a DJ for big festivals the most recent on being the  Tango Maya Fest happening every November in the spicy Cancun. Jason has been dancing Tango for many years and has a strong background in Ballroom dancing as well.
