They belong to a new generation of young dancers who devote themselves entirely to the art of Tango Dancing. Our mission is to make tango a lifestyle and, through hard work and commitment to this art, being able to pass on our traditions showing how much we love what we do. Our onset as professional dance partners took place in the province of Córdoba, from where we are native, in 2012. Both our families and the tango community in our area supported us unconditionally from the starting point. This meant the world for us since it created what we believe to be the foundations of our art. During the following years, we went through a number of enriching experiences such as dancing competitions, shows and Tango events which encouraged us to take the decision of becoming professional dancers. Along with the support of great Maestros and instructors, plus our commitment to this project, we were able to develop a unique style both in our performances and in our teaching system. We strongly believe our performances are a way to genuinely open up to anyone interested in Tango and to share with them what we do. Throughout our lessons, we offer our students our points of view on technique, different tools for each dancer and all of our knowledge so that others can experiment how we go about this wonderful art which is highly regarded around the world. Once in BA, growth opportunities that not even us believed to be possible began to emerge. We decided to show our work in the most popular Milongas and Tango competitions such as the Campeonato de la Cuidad and the Festival y Mundial de Tango (Tango World Championship). In 2015 we finally became World Champion in Tango de Pista. Nowadays, we find ourselves touring the world attending the most well-known festivals and Tango events, as we make our contribution and we pass along this tradition. We hope you can join us in our journey!

Jonathan first began his dance studies with Argentine folklore at the age of five, in the countryside of Cordoba with the dance

academy Gauderios de mi Patria. He was also a member of a number of dance groups, including the well-known Calaquendi and Sangre of Chucaro, where he was blessed to have be also introduced to other dance disciplines. As a youth, Jonathan participated in, and later also directed a number of presentations and important dance festivals in his native province of Cordoba. He had his first taste of tango when he took classes at the end of 2010 with Valeria and Julio Saavedra, and later in 2011, continued his studies with Facundo de la Cruz and Paola Sanz, the 2012 World Tango Champions of Tango Salon. Just before turning eighteen, now living in Cordoba City, Jonathon took First Place in Vanguardisimo, the inaugural competition for Tango Libre. After the victory, he dedicated himself professionally to tango for the rest of the year with well-known maestros such as Gaspar Godoy, Adriana Laplaca, Diego Escobar y Angelina Staudinger, Dante Sanchez, Ines Muzzopapa; among others.
