About Always Tango

Juan Carlos and Alicia Suarez, husband and wife,  were born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the birthplace of Tango. They have dedicated their lives to developing their skills and mastering the artistic dance of the Tango. 

Juan Carlos learned to dance at a young age in schools of the Barrio and devoted his youth to performing the Tango in the dance academies of his beloved city. He was soon able to teach both men and women how to combine their dance skills with style and elegance.

When she was 17, Alicia fell in love with both Juan Carlos Suarez and the Tango. She studied from world renowned Tango dancers Raul Bravo and Juan Carlos Copes. After years of study, Alicia and Juan Carlos began to teach Tango together as a couple in Buenos Aires.

Juan Carlos and Alicia moved to New York in 1966 and began teaching Americans about the beauty and culture of Argentina through the Tango. After moving to Houston, Texas, they became members of the "Argentinian House" of Houston, sharing Tango at social events and special celebrations in the Hispanic community.

In 1995, Juan Carlos and Alicia were awarded first place in the Houston Tango championship and in 1999, they were awarded the title of Academicos Correspondientes, "Corresponding Academicians" by Academia Nacional del Tango de la Republica Argentina. began teaching groups of people of all ages at several venues around Houston.

In 2009, they moved to Austin, Texas, where they continue to enjoy teaching Tango with the same Argentine passion.

In 2010, Juan Carlos and Alicia started a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to  the development and cohesion of the Argentinean Community, providing awareness and promotion of the Tango as a cultural heritage of humanity in Texas: The Academy of Tango-Texas. The Academy of Tango-Texas is an official correspondent of la Academia Nacional del Tango de la Republica Argentina.

Today, Juan Carlos and Alicia promote Tango culture in Houston and Austin, Texas by teaching Argentine Tango and sponsoring Milongas and Tango exhibitions. You can find Juan Carlos and Alicia every Wednesday at Copa Bar & Grill in Austin for Wednesday night classes and free Milonga and every first Thursday at Buenos Aires Cafe for a performance of traditional Argentine Tango.
