DJ Adam Hoopengardner
Adam excels in many styles of tango. His philosophy of tango is centered on the energy one feels from one's partner, and believes this should inspire the style and movement of the dance. He is confident dancing in open or close embrace and is cherished by followers for his comfortable, clear lead, his creativity, and inspiring musicality.
Adam has worked across the US, Canada, Germany, and Poland teaching workshops and at festivals often returning more than once. He is based in New York and Berlin.
He has performed and worked with some of todays leading ladies of tango including, Cigdem Tanik, Brigitta Winkler, Rebecca Shulman, Mila Vigdorova, Katherine Gorsuch and Silvina Valz.
He also DJ's Alternative music as he hosts, with his partner Ciko, New York City's only weekly Alternative milonga, Tango Cafe. He has been Djing regularly at this event for over 3 years. This has given him a lot of experience playing danceable non-tango music.
