MARIA ELENA YBARRA
Maria Elena Ybarra is a professional tango dancer from Argentina who has been dancing for over fifteen years. Her traditional technique has been influenced by great Argentine Tango teachers such as Carlos and Maria Rivarola, Carlos and Rosa Perez, and Natalia Games and Gabriel Angio.

This past year, Maria Elena has been on tour, teaching and performing along with Facundo Barrionuevo and two great argentine musicians from Buenos Aires – Eduardo Tami and Leandro Marquesano – taking their show to Syracuse, Maryland, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
Maria Elena’s classes are clear, dynamic, and fun providing her students with a solid but versatile technique. As both a leader and follower, her dance is elegant yet earthy and playful. She lives in New York City and Buenos Aires; where she teaches, performs and dances.
