Expertise:
Teacher
Location:
Brisbane, Australia

Damian Thompson has taught on 6 continents and most of the countries that are on those continents.

Having been invited to perform for many national and international events in the past 15 years, Damian is a well known and popular dancer and teacher. Wherever Damian dances, there are always those that want him to return to share his technique and passion for this great dance!

Damian’s style is based on years of learning from many different maestros and tango styles. The teaching is based upon the on-axis style and using the principles of technique to achieve a symbiotic relationship with both the music and his partner. How Damian differs from most teachers, is that there is one consistent principle for leading all movements throughout his dance – once learnt and mastered, you will be able to break down all movements and apply this knowledge for an understanding and extremely effective lead and follow.

Many describe Damian as a very playful, fun teacher able to teach many levels in the same class as needed. Damian teaches and conveys both basic and complex concepts in a systematic, logical fashion. As a collaborator in the teaching and development of tango, a provocateur who inspires passion in the art of dancing tango, Damian’s classes are not to be missed!
