The music is what first drew Dan Boccia to tango in 2000, and today the music continues to inspire him. He has been dancing and DJing for festivals and marathons throughout North America since 2001 and through these experiences has a deep appreciation for what fuels the dancers. Dan enjoys interacting with the crowd to inform his selections, which are improvised in the moment, sometimes song by song. His goal is to weave a variety of classic tango sounds together to help take the dancers on a diverse and dynamic journey that feels like a contiguous story. He creates an atmosphere in which the dancers can rely on the music and focus their energy on dancing.
