Learn, Dance and Love the Tango at the most Argentinean Spot in Manhattan
Intermediate Tango Class by:
Viviana was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Makes one believe that Tango is truly in her genes.
Her dancing is a beautiful expression of the very "porteÃ±o"
character and sensibility. She studied Modeling, Acting, Singing,
African Dances, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Brazilian and Argentine Tango with:
Carlos & Beatriz Amarillo BA, Tango, Julio Mendez BA, Tango,
Pepito Avellaneda BA, Tango, Susana Miller BA, Tango,
Tete & Maria BA, Tango, Mingo Pugliese BA, Tango,
Graciela Gonzales BA, Tango, Pocho Pizarro BA, Tango,
Gustavo Naveiras BA, Tango, Mariano "Chicho" BA, Tango,
Nito & Elba NY, Tango, Guillermina y Roberto NY, Tango,
Omar Vega NY, Tango, Berta Goldemberg BA, Acting,
Alba Oms NY, Acting, Djoniba NY, African Dances,
Spanish-American Institute NY, English. And moreï¿½.
However, as she herself states, she learned the most
at the milongas of Buenos Aires. Viviana was one
of the founders of the Tango Group "El Viento Norte",
she taught classes, performed, and with other members of
"El Viento Norte" organized several successful
milongas such as the well-know "Patio de Tango" at
"Centro Cultural de la Rivera de San Isidro", Buenos Aires.
Viviana has been Teaching and performing since 1993.
Her spirited, elegant style of dancing appeals to a wide audience
while wining the price of the milongueros. As teacher,
Viviana is known for making the authentic Tango
accessible to her students. She concentrates on musicality, creativity
posture, balance, communication between the partners,
distilling the essentials of Tango learned firsthand from
dancers of the older generation.
Tomas Corbalan comes from a family long associated
with Tango, professional Tango singers, and bandoneon players.
He took his first steps in Tango at age 7. A drummer as well as
a professional music producer Tomas brings with him a strong affinity
for the music of Tango as well as a love of dance.
(the Brazilian martial arts dance, Capoeira is among his many talents.)
He counts strongly among his influences in Tango, Chicho Frumboli,
Gustavo Naveira, Pablo Rodriguez and Piazzolla
