About Adam

Adam Cornett started dancing Tango in 2000 in Portland Oregon. He studied with Rachel Lidskog and Alex Krebs. Adam became the assistant teacher to Rachel Lidskog in his second year of tango. Later he became assistant teacher to Alex Krebs. Adam started teaching on his own at the age of 20.

Having taken way to long to get to Buenos Aires, he vowed that after his first trip in 2013 that he would go every year to continue his studies. Because of this he learns from many teachers in Buenos Aires but his two main teachers are Gabriel Angio and Natalia Games. As a student of tango history he studies with them to learn the historical information and figures of the old milongueros.

In 2014 he moved to Boston to partner with Tilly Kimm. The two did tours throughout the US as well as China and Taiwan. Adam and Tilly won the US Tango de Pista (Salon) championships in 2016. The two represented the United States in the Mundial de Tango in 2016. They taught together for three years however in 2018 the two separated and Adam went on a short US tour with 2010 world champion Maria Ines Bogado. Adam is now teaching with Jesica Arfenoni in Chicago and at festivals and weekend workshops. Adam and Jesica are based in Chicago. They teach classes at Almagro every week on Tuesdays.
