Anthony Miller (Sydney)

DJ ANTHONY MILLER - PLAY THE RIGHT TANGO AT THE RIGHT MOMENT. I loved Tango since I saw my parents dancing it. I run a Tango School in Sydney “Tango Spirit” as well as run DJ Classes in Sydney and around the world (www.tangodj.com.au). At milongas, which is the night of dancers, lovers of the beloved tango, I play music that people enjoy dancing to - Tango that makes you come back to the dance floor for more. I am passionate about tango music, in fact I am almost obsessive about the music. I am a resident DJ at one of the most traditional milongas in Sydney held twice a month. I have been invited to many places around the world: Santiago, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, as well as this year to Europe and Turkey.
