Teaching Argentine Tango at CCSF since the Fall of 2000

A lifelong dancer (extensive training in ballet &> modern) and since 1994 a devotee of Argentine tango, Chelsea Eng is a full-time tango professional: performer, improviser, choreographer and teacher. Performance &> choreography highlights include Confitería Ideal/Buenos Aires, the International Dance Festival/New York City, national television (Latin Eyes), Diálogos on Hollywood’s theatre row, Leading Ladies of Tango at San Francisco’s Herbst Theatre, GlamourTango at Chicago's Logan Square Auditorium, and numerous shows improvising with the musicians of MonTango, Tango No. 9 and Trio Garufa. Chelsea is a co-founding member of the all-woman collaborative dance company Tango Con*Fusión (TangoConFusion.com), now in its 8th year. She has taught Argentine tango since the mid-90s at workshops &> festivals in many cities {Portland (7 TangoFests), Las Vegas, Seattle, Philadelphia, Honolulu, San Diego, Los Angeles}, including Buenos Aires. Chelsea holds a Master’s Degree in Education – Dance Specialization from Stanford University. As founder &> long-time director of the popular Argentine Tango Program at City College of San Francisco, she regularly teaches semester-length credit courses in Argentine Tango through CCSF's Izzy award-winning Dance Department (ccsf.edu); she has also substitute-taught Intermediate Ballet. In March of 2010, Chelsea was one half of the first all-female pair and the first American pair, to teach (and to present Lead-Follow Exchange as a topic), while Tango Con*Fusión was the first all-female tango company to perform, at the Congreso Internacional de Tango Argentino (C.I.T.A.) in Buenos Aires. In March of 2011, Chelsea (together with Tango Con*Fusión) had the honor of performing with Latin-Grammy nominated band Tanghetto at the Sala Zitarrosa Theater in Montevideo and at Salón Canning in Buenos Aires. Chelsea's writing has been published in IN DANCE, San Francisco's long-running dance newsletter.

As a former transfer student (from Pomona College/ Claremont, CA to Stanford University), a Stanford University alum (B.A. and M.A.), and a City College faculty member, Chelsea enjoys voluntarily representing Stanford University at the CCSF College Transfer Fair each Fall.
