Choreographers, teachers and professional dancers of Tango Argentino.
Life and dance are a unique thing for us... we dance to live and live to dance! From the early age we began to dance following our parents who began to participate in dance classes in 1994. 
After several partners, finally our career together begins in August 1999, when our dear first ever master, Rossano Miranda, advised us to dance together. We tried, and it was "dancing" love at first sight, and true love the following year!
We achieved several awards in Standard and Latin / American dances, specializing above all in the first one, where we managed to reach the A1 class, winning and arriving in the final in the major Italian competitions. In 2001, the turning point in our career... watching Sally Potter's film "The Tango Lesson" on television, we fell in love with this beautiful art. Since then we have dedicated ourselves body and soul to study this dance, always trying to achieve our own personal vision of Tango. In 2004, we decided to share our passion with our people and our city, opening our Academy of Argentine Tango, the first in our city, the PALADANZE SYRACUSE. Since that year until today, thousands of tangueros have danced with us, and many of them are still with us to continue the search for themselves and their Tango through our lessons! Since 2005 we started our first performing throughout Italy, and then also abroad. The great appreciation of all the Italian tanguero people pushed us to face a great challenge ... the MUNDIAL DE TANGO in Buenos Aires. In the Tango Escenario we stopped in 19th place, but the greatest satisfaction was the Tango Salon, where we managed to classify us even in the 4th place overall, result still today never reached by any "non-Argentine" couple! From which moment the whole world began to know each other and we started to perform in many festivals, teaching in many cities and even today we are one of the most acclaimed Italian couples in the world. We bring our Tango around Italy teaching permanently in our Academy in Syracuse, and since 2014 we have opened another Argentine Tango Academy in Verona.
