Patrick Marsolek

Subjects Taught

   • Tango


Since Patrick has his first introductory lesson in the Argentine tango in 2005, he has been passionately exploring, studying, and learning atango.  Shortly after that first lesson he attended a full weekend workshop and hasn't looked back.  He's attended seminars, festivals and has studied with many of the modern "masters" of tango from the United States, Europe, and Argentina.  He's been to Argentina twice to experience the rich culture of tango and study from the Portenos.

Since 2007 Patrick has been teaching tango around Montana, Washington, and British Columbia.  He's one of the founding members of TangoHelena, a nonprofit community organization dedicated to promoting the tango and the culture of the dance in Central Montana.

He enjoys sharing the tango with people of all ages.  He's has students in grade school and as old as 100 years.  He's taught in schools, retirement communities, workplace Christmas parties, private groups and individual lessons.  He produced a series of Tango lessons through Helena Civic Television which aired more than 50 episodes.

Currently Patrick is working on building the tango community in Missoula with his wife Lori, and the tango dance team-a group of tango "regulars." Lori and Patrick teach weekly classes at the Downtown Dance Collective, host weekly practicas and two milongas(tango dances) a month in Missoula.  He also teaches regularly in Helena with TangoHelena instructors.

For his "day job" patrick is a clinical hypnotherapist, writer and researcher, and teaches classes on compassionate communication, self-hypnosis, and personal personal empowerment.
