Mario has established himself as the new rising star of Nuevo Tango
style of dance (mentors such as Fabian Salas, Gustavo Naveira and
Chicho Frumboli), further developing a style of Tango which
incorporates innovative steps with creative musicality, fluidity, and
an increased capacity for self-expression. In 2004, Mario became the
first North American instructor invited to teach at the Congreso
Internacional the Tango Argentino (CITA) in Buenos Aires, every March.
Since 2002, Mario has proved himself to be a dedicated and popular
teacher - traveling around the US and giving workshops and
performances. His belief that the body can be used in many ways to
reflect the different moods in the music, has led him to investigate
variations in the qualities of movement, then applying his knowledge
to paint movements on the floor, much like an artist would on his
canvas. Mario is a dynamic dancer, a charismatic performer and a great
Dancing since she was a child, Anabella has studied contemporary
dance, martial arts, and most recently done intensive studies with
Chicho and Eugenia, the contemporary masters of Tango Nuevo. She is
one of the most beloved social dancers in Buenos Aires, and has an
incredible sensitivity as a follower. Her knowledge of the dynamics of
dance and musicality make her an especially valuable asset in a
classroom. She has been touring the US with Mario since 2004.
See you this weekend!
