We are thrilled to host Octavio Fernandez – young talented Tango artist at our academy for a week of classes workshops and more. Octavio’s passion for Tango started when he was a teenager, in a family where Tango, Folklore and Rock ‘n Roll were an everyday occurrence.Elegant, but full of freshness, his dance was created thanks to hours and hours of dancing in the milongas porteñas. The influence of great contemporary tango masters and dancers, as well as the essence of the old “Milongueros” are embodied in every step he takes on a dance floor. For the last 6 years he co-organised “El Yeite Tango Club”, on of the best and busiest milongas in Buenos Aires.
Raquel and Octavio will be teaming up to teach all classes and workshops and even preparing you a little surprise:)
