Valeria Masside
Anibal Lautaro

August 20-26, 2023

Anibal and Valeria are Argentine dancers and teachers, who represent the traditional style of Buenos Aires with a great personality and a touch of youth. They belong to the last generation formed by real milongueros and grandmasters. The teaching in classes and personal style has led them to travel the world with different shows or as teachers at prestigious festivals (Russia, China, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Belgium, France, Netherlands, UK, Brazil). They are choreographers, producers, and directors of the show “100% Tango” and from 2015 directors, organizers and producers of the “Antwerpen Tango Festival”. In ten years together they work to create a teaching method aiming to simplify the difficult, comfort, abrazo, naturalness, although without neglecting aesthetics. Their curiosity made them take classes with many teachers and very different styles, making them experience different types of abrazo, energy, techniques, and interpretations that are now very useful to exploit the capabilities of each student.

Aurore Chadoin
Sebastian Motter

Aurore Sebastian.jpeg

Aurore and Sebastián had been dancing tango for many years when they met in 2017 at a milonga in Paris. Shortly after, they decided to move to Buenos Aires, to study tango in all its aspects and to perfect their training. Going to classes, milongas and studios in Buenos Aires, they formed their dance over time and through hard work. They are vice-champions of the Carlos Gardel festival in Rosario in September 2019 as well as vice-champions of France 2019 in the stage tango category. Freshly returned, they are eager to share their experience, and pass on in turn what they have learned from great maestros. They give group and private lessons in Paris and Lille, in the provinces and abroad where they also give demonstrations.
