World class dancers to teach at Argentine tango workshops

Juan Martín Carrara and Stefanía Colina are Tango Salón dancers and choreographers from Uruguay. They have won the 2009 Intercontinental Tango Salón Championship and the Uruguayan Tango Salón Championship in 2012. Young, talented and diligent, they dance with a respect for the tradition and the music, and yet keep working on new forms of expression. Being very popular teachers, their classes allow one to hear and feel what is the most intangible in tango. Their musicality, charm and sensibility have won them many hearts all over the globe.

Juan and Stefania teach at the festival’s advanced level dance workshops and perform during the concert milonga of Solo Tango Orquesta on Saturday September 16.
