Meredith Klein, Director

Meredith Klein began dancing tango in 1999 in Massachusetts and, little by little, it took over her life.  In 2005, she left her work as a grant writing consultant to move to Buenos Aires, where she lived for three years.  In 2006, she began working with Andres Amarilla, and for the past 12 years they have traveled throughout the world, teaching and performing in Australia, Turkey, Lebanon, Poland, Cyprus, Brazil, Argentina, and Canada, as well as in 40 different cities in the United States.

In 2008, Andres & Meredith moved to Philadelphia and established the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School, of which Meredith is now Director.  Meredith continues to travel nationally and internationally to teach and perform. She guides a Tango Tour to Buenos Aires, organizes innumerable events (practicas, milongas, seminars, and The Philadelphia International Tango Festival), and teaches group classes & private lessons.

Performance highlights include:
** Performing with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra (with Andres Amarilla, March 2015)
** Performing at Independence Hall during the World Meeting of Families, shortly before Pope Francis spoke (with Geoffrey Dominessy, September 2015).
** Dancing on the field (yes, on grass!) at halftime during a Philadelphia Union soccer game (with Pablo Garcia Gomez, September 2015).

In addition to continuing to study tango, Meredith studies Classical Ballet with Alexei Borovik (principal dancer with the Pennsylvania Ballet until his retirement).
