Elizabeth Hudgins has run the successful Urban Beat Dance Company in Vancouver BC since 1999, bringing dance to life for thousands of people in Vancouver. She has been dancing for 20 years and has over 12 years of experience teaching several dance styles including Argentine Tango, West coast swing, Salsa, Hip Hop, and Country two-step. Her dancing has been seen on City TV, Urban Rush, CBC and the Life Network. Elizabeth has training in jazz, ballet, and modern which provide basic knowledge of movement and technique but her real passion is for social dancing.
Elizabeth spent several years raising her two lovely young children, during which time dancing took a back seat.
Recently, it has been so enjoyable for her to immerse herself again in partner dancing and sharing that joy with others through her teaching and dancing. It was during this `renaissance` that she began to work with Clarry Smits and develop and wonderful partnership through dancing and teaching together. Together they host the Tuesday milonga … La Tangueria Esposito … which is the longest running weekly milonga in Vancouver
