Koichiro Suzuki started tak­ing Argentine Tango lessons at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he went for his under­grad­u­ate study. Before Mr. Suzuki started to dance, he was always inter­ested in per­for­mance. In 1996–1998, Koichiro marched and per­formed with the world-renowned Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps. After the drum corps, Koichiro decided to pur­sue a degree in Music Performance which cre­ated new ways to express his pas­sion for per­for­mance as a musi­cian and a dancer. His danc­ing skills were greatly enhanced from his deep under­stand­ing of music. He stud­ied dance with Marek Szotkowski, Olivera Grubisha, Julio Bassan, and Ines Muzzoppa, Alejandro Larenas & Marisol Morales among others.

Mr. Suzuki com­pleted his Master’s Degree in Performance Music at Duquesne University and per­form­ed with the River City Brass Band—the only active pro­fes­sional brass band in the United States. Suzuki’s dance com­pany, Pittsburgh Tango Connection, which he founded to bring Argentine Tango into promi­nence in Pittsburgh, has steadily grown to become the largest of its kind in the city.
