Maestros:

Mariano "Chicho" Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda

Mariano Frumboli, also known as Chicho, has undoubtedly played the main role in the creative evolution of tango in the last 10 years. He is renowned worldwide as one of the founders and initiators of Tango Nuevo. He is famous for his personality, musicality and creativity. A true representative of the "New Generation," Chicho brings all his talent and freshness to the dance. He teaches with love and talent, combined with a profound understanding of the dance. His classes are a must for those just approaching the Nuevo Tango style, as well as for experienced dancers. Chicho's work has been one of the biggest gifts that an artist could have given to any art form: the continuous questioning, the research, the quest for originality, and full-hearted creativity.

Juana Sepulveda, is one of the youngest-born stars in the tango sky, she spans the entire range of expression from an innovative subtlety to a stunning manifestation of power in every movement, always matched by her unswerving musicality and pure sensuality.

4) All festival events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will take place at the Radisson hotel. On Thursday night (the opening night) classes and milonga will happen at the Grand (our regular venue at the Embassy Suites Hotel). Complimentary shuttle will be provided for those staying at the Radisson between Radisson and the Grand from 4pm and until the end of the milonga (it's less than a 10 minute walk, but having shuttle at night is a safer option). Don't miss Thursday night to say good buy to the venue that hosted the festival since 2009. We'll make sure our opening night is extra special.
