His musical background (he composes and plays music in the band "Jamm" for decades) helps him have unique interpretation of tango.
In 2012 he started DJing on Boston's classic milongas as well as alternative ones. In 2013 Grisha has started teaching tango at MIT with Simonida (2 successful series of milonga classes). He attended and graduated from Hernan and Anita Teacher Assistant Program at Ultimate Tango.
Toby Balsley started tango at Ultimate Tango with Hernan Brizuela and Anita Flejter. Before embarking in Tango, he had been a hobby dancer for many years including Latin, ballroom, country 2-step and West Cost Swing. He and his wife (also now a tango dancer) have found that the introducing of tango has improved their everyday commutations because at its heart, Tango is about partnership and relationship.
While a computer and data consultant by day, he has a musical background in singing, choral conducting, music theory and vocal musical composition. He is fascinated by the many layers of music and dance that Argentine tango provides.
