Nicholas Jones has been dancing & studying dance since 1996, with a focus on Argentine Tango.
He was one of the first North American tango dancers invited to teach and perform at a festival in Buenos Aires (Pulpo’s Tango Week), and with his dancer partner, Diana Cruz, has taught and performed across North America, Europe, & Australia.
They co-choreographed and performed the show “Tango Times” with Gustavo Naviera & Giselle Anne and were guest artists & choreographers for the show “The Tango Zone” in NYC, as well as many other projects.
Nick & Diana deeply enjoy creating unexpected moments, that highlight Argentine Tango’s improvisational nature and unique structure.
As a teacher, Nick displays his extensive knowledge and experience with dynamism and humor. He began teaching tango in 1998 but would like to emphasize that he is still a student.
Nick plays bandoneon, an instrument featured Argentine Tango. In 2020 he formed the Zero Hour Quartet. Playing music has given him a unique look into the inner working of tango music, and has greatly influenced his art.
Nick holds a degree in Creative Writing and is currently working on a master’s degree in Counseling and Therapy.
