Doruk Golcu y Erin Malley

Erin Malley & Doruk Golcu are an internationally touring teaching couple. Partners on the dance floor and in life, they have been dancing together since 2004. They are known for their smooth dancing, unique musicality, and connection to one another. Erin and Doruk are generous teachers, known for the approachable way that they share their knowledge of both the body in motion and the structure of the dance. They have taught and performed extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Seattle, Hawaii, Denver, Michigan, Ohio, Buenos Aires, Ireland, Portugal, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Istanbul.


In their teaching, Erin and Doruk look at the structural analysis of tango. They believe that this analysis can be used to build the foundation for any aesthetic styling you choose. They greatly encourage exploration and experimentation in their students. They have lived in several very vibrant communities containing a broad variety of dancing styles. Thanks to that exposure, they can strongly contextualize their teachings to different styles and approaches of dancing tango.
