Martin Maldonado & Maurizio Ghella, both from Argentina, currently live and work in Vienna, Austria.  In addition to their academic training in tango dance, they have studied tango in Buenos Aires with the original milongueros.  They are representatives and carriers of the tradition and culture of authentic Argentine tango, and are sharing this knowledge and skills with the rest of the world

We were fortunate to have them teach & perform in Philadelphia in 2012, and we have been anxiously waiting for them to come back ever since.  Please don't miss them!

8:30-9:30 pm: To Cross or Not to Cross, that is the question! (Proposing & following all kinds of crosses…)

3-4:30 pm: Elastic Embrace and over rotated Pivots - The smooth transition between open and close embrace to generate different movements on the dance floor

5-6:30 pm: Use of the “Negative Space” of the Interpreter and Proposer for Sacadas - Understanding where to step when trying to achieve a Sacada and how to avoid “accidents” while making them.
