Lorena and Gaston dance together since 2015, from that year, other than getting married, they have achieved to join together their artistic paths to evolve professionally. They constantly strike to accomplish a tango that does not just refer to its technical side, but that conveys artistic achievement beyond the movement.
Dancers and masters of Argentine Tango, with a personal style that is intimate and innovative. They dance together in Buenos Aires since 2012. Like the majority of the teachers and dancers, they began with Folklore and Argentine Rock. They travel every year to Europe, where they impart workshops and shows in festivals and in well known dance schools. Currently they are teachers at the Tango Escuela Carlos Copello where they have regular classes. Their classes of Tango, Milonga, and Vals have a passionate and fun style. They use techniques and means from different corporal and intellectual disciplines that achieve to integrate the students in a unique way, motivating the beginning level students as much as the advanced students.
Since 2009, they believe that the connection, musicality, and technique are the keys to fully appreciate the beauty of Tango. In their classes they want to concentrate on how to be comfortable inside the embrace, based on the logic and naturalness of the movement. They travel all around the U.S. as well as abroad (Vancouver, Victoria, Mexico City, Cancun, Poland, India, etc…) to perform and share their tango knowledge at festivals and weekend workshops. In Chicago, their group classes are taught with an eye on encouraging and nurturing individual artistic styles while at the same time stressing the core movements and strong values of traditional tango. Their infectious energy and love of the dance has created a large following of students in Chicago and the surrounding area.
