Eva and Pablo are internationally recognized Argentine Tango teachers who belong to the New Guard of Milongueros. Young and full of enthusiasm, they use the embrace as a means of musical expression. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina they have chosen Albuquerque as home-base after having traveled throughout the U.S. in recent years, giving seminars and performances. They combine an extraordinary ability to explain the basic mechanics of danceable tango, and from there build a very personal dance for each student.
Attention early arrivals: You are invited to join Eva and Pablo at their Road Runner Practica on Thursday, August 29, 8:30-10:30pm at Las Puertas. $5.
