About our guest instructors
Gustavo Rios was born and raised in Buenos Aires into a family of traditional milongueros. An outstanding professional tango and Latin dancer, he got his start with tango before he took his first breathhis mother danced throughout her pregnancy. He relates that, as an infant, instead of lullabies he was put to sleep to the beautiful lyrics and cadence of his mother's favorite tangos. No wonder he grew up to love Argentine tango and dance it with such feeling and style! Trained as a teacher in the Institute of Education Science and Philosophy of Buenos Aires (1984-1988), Gustavo perfected his tango technique in the Escuela Argentina de Tango in Buenos Aires .
Francesca Nardi trained in ballet and acting during her childhood in Italy . She performed with the Ballet School of the Francesco Morlacchi Opera Theatre in Perugia (an affiliate of the London Royal Academy of Dance) and the Theatre Academy of the University of Perugia (CUT). After graduating from the University of Perugia , she lived and worked in France and in Bulgaria , where she has taught ballet and theatre to both adults and children. As an actress, she performed both in Italy and abroad. She was a member of the Italian delegation to the European Festival of Culture in Krakow , Poland . Since arriving in New York City , she has been performing Argentine tango with the renowned masters Orlando Ibarra Reyes and José Luis Delgadillo at the DanceSport Studio. She teaches tango to students at all levels in several NY studios.
