President of the Harvard Argentine Tango Society, and with more than a decade of experience in tango, Thomas has worked 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 masterclasses and performances with internationally recognized dancers, including Hernán Brizuela, Cyrena Drusine, Silvana Brizuela-Weigel, and Fabián Salas. He has lived in Argentina and often travels back to Buenos Aires, where he performs with his duo and his trio, Tres de corazón, in milongas including Salón Canning, Porteño y Bailarín, La Piccola, and El bar de Julio. 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 tradition and innovation--from the classics of the golden age to the latest nuevo and alternative.
