Alenka (Slovenia), started training show dance and Latin American dances as a child, then moved on to jazz ballet, salsa, and tango. She has been teaching and performing tango with Ariel since 2012. She is a communication lecturer, bringing her expertise into teaching, interpreting, and explaining tango. She continues exploring dance integration currently from the classical ballet perspective.
Pedro Ariel Sanchez
Ariel (Argentina) was raised with tango. His father was a popular tango singer, singing at milongas in Buenos Aires and Cordoba. Ariel spent his childhood at local milongas and experienced the background of tango and tango performances as well as witnessed the efforts to maintain the cultural force and values of tango. He started dancing tango in 2000, and moved to the UK to teach tango in 2004. He brought a diverse experience in street and corporate dance performing, and is interested in keeping tidy the tango dirt (tango arrabalero). He is a sociologist .
Alenka & Ariel teach and organise tango events in Stirling and Edinburgh. They continue to study and learn tango either by organising events with professional visiting tango dancers in Scotland (truly grateful for Pablo Inza & Sofía Saborido visits to Scotland), or training in Buenos Aires.
Places to learn tango in Buenos Aires are plenty, but we suggest: DNI, La Viruta - Luis Solanas (compulsory learning stop for any tango dancer) or any of the Viruteros/as teachers, Roberto Herrera, Roberto Firpo, Chick to Chick, and ... any place that says tango classes. But Argentine tango cannot be split from the Argentinean political history, and visits to the ESMA , Evita museum, Madres y Abuelas de Playa de Mayo,that are crucial political memory institutions, will give you a profound understanding of the social context linked to tango.
