We are Orlando Reyes and Adriana Salgado official ATUSA 2019 Stage Tango Champions and 2021 Tango de Pista Champions
For the last 25 years, we have been passionate about Argentine Tango and have devotedly dedicated to study it, train, perform and teach students all over the world. While we focus plenty on body work and teaching the mechanics and technique of it, our favorite part is to help others connect body and mind, to relate with the partner and the music, and to increase their sensitivity, understanding and awareness for Tango.
We are passionate about inspiring and encouraging as many people as possible by teaching the importance of building a strong foundation with some of the most essential elements such as connection, embrace, walking and musicality.
In addition to our educational work, we experience and immense pleasure by performing and doing exhibitions for all kinds of events.
Whether you’re looking for an a performance or to learn some tango, we are here for it!
