President of the Harvard Argentine Tango Society, Thomas has more than a decade of experience in tango. He has studied with master teachers around the world, performed with professional musicians and dancers, and deejayed at milongas and festivals throughout Europe, North America, and Argentina. For the last five years, he has taught private and group lessons at Harvard, where he continues to teach tango every semester to staff, faculty, and students. In the past, he has also taught tango in Varanasi, India; in Milan, Italy at the Collegio di Milano; in Somerville at the Tango Society of Boston; and in Vermont and New Hampshire at Middlebury and Dartmouth Colleges. In 2013, he was a guest instructor and performer at the Moonlight in Vermont Tango Weekend in Brandon, VT. As an organizer, he founded and hosted “La milonga del norte” in Hanover, NH and La milonga “El gato rojo” & “Queen's Head” in Cambridge, MA. At Harvard, he has organized workshops and performances with internationally recognized dancers, including Hernán Brizuela, Cyrena Drusine, and Fabián Salas. He has lived in Argentina and often travels back to Buenos Aires, where he performs solo and with his trio, Tres de corazón, in milongas including Salón Canning, Porteño y Bailarín, La Piccola, and El bar de Julio. In recent years, he has also appeared as a soloist with the Mercury Orchestra, the Brookline Symphony Orchestra, the Dartmouth Wind Symphony, the Harvard Dudley House Orchestra, and L'Orchestre symphonique universitaire de Grenoble. As a classically trained saxophonist, professional DJ, and tango musician, he brings to the dance floor a wealth of knowledge and experience with an ear carefully tuned to both tradition and innovation--from the classics of the golden age to nuevo and alternative.
