Daniel R. Dávila

John Miller

As a young child Daniel grew up listening to Golden Age Tango, Bolero and Charro music played on the AM radio stations such as KCOR “Epocas de Oro” in the 1960s and early 70s in San Antonio. Raised by his great grandmother, Doña Maria de la Luz Alfaro (b1902-d2005), Daniel was exposed at an early age to Tango often played from her now long lost 78rpm phonographs. His musical tributaries, however, began with Jazz, Mariachi, Gospel and Classical training on Clarinet and Guitar. Dance was a distant art amongst the diversity of arts he performs.

Today dancing Tango has joined his musical forefront.  To his delight he spends many hours preparing his tango portfolio to share and delight his beloved local community.

  • Saturday Milonga, 2:00 AM-6:00 AM
