Caroline Demers

Caroline discovered her passion for tango in January 1999, when she finally fulfilled her tireless desire to dance. From September 2001 she taught at the Académie de Tango Argentin. Always striving to improve her technique, she takes part in advanced workshops with various Argentinean teachers who come to Montreal.  Since 2007, she has taken part in training courses in Argentina with several renowned teachers.


Caroline's approach to her students is professional, warm and committed. She is committed to the quality of execution of her movements, and knows the mechanics of the body well enough to convey the importance of the micro-movements of the body that make dance fluid and harmonious, while respecting the limits of each individual. She uses her martial arts background to explain energy transfer and how to properly use the force between partners.  She is a very patient, generous and meticulous teacher. Caroline has been running the Tango Rico school since 2003. https://tangorico.com/

She taught several group classes but fell in love with the spinning classes. An avid road cyclist, she decided to move to Sutton in 2004.
