About Richard Dini
 
Richard has taught Argentine tango in Toronto, Australia and Cuba, studied with many of the world's leading tango instructors and performed for stage and screen. In Toronto, he taught at Club Milonga, the city's longest running tango dance club, and performed at the Canadian National Exhibition.
 
"I believe in teaching dancers to learn the correct way right from the beginning, otherwise they will never be good tango dancers," he says.
 
His own dancing has earned him the respect of such world renowned tango teachers as brothers Miguel and Osvaldo Zotto, Fabian Salas (of The Tango Lesson movie), Argentina's revered teaching couple Nito and Elba, and the late Carlos Gavito, long-time star of the globe-travelling stage show Forever Tango. When he wasn't dancing or teaching tango, Richard's career has included years as a film editor with the CTV television network, a stint as a restaurateur, and operation of a limousine service where he enjoyed working with many world leaders as well as prominent figures in the entertainment industry. One of his favourite limo clients was the late actor Anthony Quinn, whose autobiography was titled One Man's Tango.
 
Lest he be allowed to forget, Richard's adolescent education included a job in a Toronto burlesque theatre.
