"Kyla was my first proper tango teacher. Unlike in other classes I’d taken before where they teach you sequences of steps or patterns that then don’t work on the dance floor, Kyla knows how to unlock true improvisation by demystifying the basic elements of tango movements. As a leader it gave me immediate confidence to go out social dancing. Nothing flashy or fancy, just attention and instruction on correct alignment, body awareness and connection, and she has a natural instinct for the fundamental possibilities of tango lead and follow that could take any beginner to the next level in no time."
"I took my first tango class with Kyla more than ten years ago and she has only grown to be more of an amazing teacher and dancer, and friend since. Kyla is a true professional dancer and has traveled all over the US and the world to share her talent and passion for the dance. Kyla has inspired me, encouraged me, and motivated me to be a better dancer more times than she could possibly know. I would recommend anyone to take a class with her and I am confident you too will be inspired by this beautiful dance. You would have a hard time finding anyone as qualified and knowledgeable as Kyla to guide you through your first steps :)"

"Kyla is an exceptional teacher, dancer, and role model. She dances both roles with finesse, and she teaches them with clarity and expertise. I can't recommend her highly enough; in addition to her rock-solid credentials, she cares deeply about her students, she's fun to learn from, and she's a joy to be around!" - Naomi Harris
"Warm and fun are the first two words when I think about Studio T.
Kyla & Richard are without question, two of my favorite teachers I’ve had lessons with. They have a way of not only bringing out the best of you on the dance floor with their in-depth knowledge and understanding, but the attentiveness they bring to each individual person in the room makes sure that you personally feel welcomed, involved and your tango needs are cared for. They give you knowledge
of both the fundamentals as
well as the technique, instead of sequences only, which is
imperative to really dance a dance.
Having done many other styles of dance throughout my life, there’s something about Tango that keeps me coming back for more. It brings a
(very addicting) emotional intensity,
in a way that no other dance has been able to provide for me. Plus there
is no end to learning.
Overall, I can’t fault this place. Guaranteed laughter, learning and love!
"At the beginning of this year my husband and I set ourselves a goal to learn to dance.. Something neither of us have ever done before...First Tango lesson done with the amazing Studio T. Kyla and Richard were the perfect teachers and we were made to feel very welcomed by the group. Totally buzzing! Can't wait for the next class!" - Nicki Maginn
