Rodrigo Palacios
Rodrigo is one of the best examples of the evolution in the present Tango.  His shows and classes have the perfect percentage of organic innovation, aesthetic and a very rooted compromise with the Tango tradition, that gives him a personal style, so easy to recognise from the amateur eye as for the most experienced once.

Rodrigo is internationally known for his quality of movement, musical interpretation and generous personality. 


Marce Ospina

Marce was born in Medellin, Colombia and acquired most of her knowledge in dancing concepts and Ballet technique at the famous “Dance As” Academy.

Influenced by her father, who has always loved tango music and dancing, she started dancing Tango at the age of 17 and joined several festival and events around Colombia.

In 2011 Marcela and Christian Cerezo won the Tango Pista second prize in Manizales Tango Competition. That year she also joined the dance company “Neo Tango” and she had the opportunity to learn and develop her skills in stage tango.

CECILIA GONZALEZ   Well respected by the tango community in Buenos Aires, Cecilia is an exceptional dancer who has worked with the most renowned Argentine dancers of her generation since 1995.   She combines strong movements with wise softness getting, without effort, the most powerful synthesis. The technical precision, fluidity of her movements and notable capacity of improvisation characterize her dance.
Cecilia shares her extensive knowledge and passion with her students. She is a very appreciated and requested tango teacher and has been continually invited to give workshops and participate in festivals around the world. Since its inception in 1999, she has been a member of the teaching faculty of the Argentine International Tango Congress (C.I.T.A) held annually in Buenos Aires.

ALBANO GOLDENBERG   Albano has been working on developing his own style of tango, characterized by circular and spiral movements. The goal is for students to use the least amount of effort to achieve the maximum potential in movements.  He had the opportunity to study with distinguished maestros such as Carlos Gavito, Sabrina and Rubén Veliz, Guillermina Quiroga, “el Pibe” Avellaneda, Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne, Julio Balmaceda and Corina de la Rosa, Mariano “Chicho” Frúmboli and Juana Sepúlveda, and Pablo Verón. He has also worked as a teacher in the Escuela Carlos Copello, Julio Balmaceda and Corina de la Rosa’s Zarasa Studio.  Albano participated as a contemporary dancer in the National Vendimia Festival and in 2008 travelled to Chile as an invited teacher and dancer in the Valparatango festival. He gave intensive workshops and performed in France, Germany, Switzerland, USA and Canada.  He participated as a dancer of 24M under the Cambalache festival and also the dancing Tango Show Añoranzas entire 2015 season.

Fun at last years (2016) workshops with Cecilia and Albano.   Everyone had a great time and definitely came away all the richer for it.
