Koa Hons, a tanguero originally from Hawaii, was mesmerized by the connection, movement and music after watching the world famous Forever Tango group perform in Seattle in 2008. This was a transformative point in his life! His tango adventure started immediately and with tenacity by participating in Argentine tango classes in Tacoma and in Seattle. His love of the culture, music and the abrazo (embrace) has fueled his passion for Tango.
In 2009 he started teaching Argentine Tango in Olympia & Tacoma, WA with Jenny Mulligan, and since then has taught in Seattle with Michelle Badion, Belllingham, and Vancouver B.C. His instructors include Jenny Mulligan, Carlos Barrionuevo & Mayte Valdes (BsAs), Eva Lucero & Patricio Touceda (BsAs), Michelle Badion (USA), and a wide range of other instructors from Berlin, New York, L.A., & San Francisco.
Koa competed in his first competition in the 2011 Seattle Tangoearth Immersion Salon Tango Competition and placed 2nd. Among frequenting local milongas (social tango dances) & Tango festivals in the US & Canada, he recently performed with Michelle Badion and at the Seattle Folklife Festival, Northwest Dance Extravaganza and other functions.
Koa focuses on sharing his passion for tango with his students and anyone willing. He thrives to inspire a desire to pursue the connection, community, and music involved within this loved dance. With his analytical attention to detail and technique, development of an individual’s dance ability is the goal, and the method is guided by cooperative learning amongst students, gentle elastic connection between partners, playful exploration of possibilities, and plenty of fun!
Morgana was raised watching America's Cup...and the PBS Ballroom
Championships and musicals before Mom introduced her to Ballet at the
age of 6. After realizing she had too much energy for Ballet, Mom
enlisted her in gymnastics and later, track, soccer and basketball.
During college, Morgana’s quiet interest in dance and creative
movement became a passion and evolved into the desire to teach
Ballroom. During training, she veered toward Viennese Waltz and Salsa
which has since turned into West Coast Swing, Salsa and primarily,
Argentine Tango / Fusion. “I consider Argentine Tango to be a
thinkers’ dance which forces me as a partner, to slow down and become
a better listener. Dance is a conversation likening any other language
and, like walking or other dances, it’s just another way of elegantly
falling and catching yourself!” Argentine Tango is often utilized in
couples therapy as a means to learn more efficient communication and
in many cases, an advised form of physical therapy. Morgana’s training
stems from Patricio Touceda / Eva Lucero, Michelle Badion and Carlos /
Meyte. While she's trained in Salon, Traditional (close embrace) and
Milongero, she gravitates toward Nuevo Style due to the musical
versatility, open frame elasticity and athleticism.
Morgana enjoys all teaching offers and has a side curiosity swirling
around costume design and dancing in a musical sometime and hopes the
event performance dancing done over the years will lead to this type
