David & I met in the home of Tango, Buenos Aires in the early noughties.
David was born in North Argentina and at the age of 18 moved to Buenos Aires to study in the country’s top school for modern dance: El Taller de San Martin. On graduation, he performed in the famous Compañia de San Martin before joining Argentine ballet superstar, Maximiliano Guerra, as a principal dancer in his company.

Working with tango dancer Mora Godoy in a tango/ballet fusion gave him his first taste of tango. He was soon dancing with world-renowned tango companies such as Tanguera, Tangokinesis and Miguel Angel Zotto’s Tango Por Dos.

However it was tango salon – the essence of tango – that won his heart and he spent time studying with the legendary Osvaldo Zotto and was privileged to be his teaching assistant.

I stumbled across tango in the late 1990’s in an old church hall in Camden Town. The music and movements touched my soul and I dedicated herself to studying tango as an art form.

In 2003, I moved to Buenos Aires to explore tango full time – studying with well-known teachers and immersing myself in the culture so I could truly understand it.

In 2005, David and I – literally – crossed paths on a Buenos Aires streets (we were with mutual friends who introduced them). In 2007, we decided to make London their home, creating Tango Movement. The rest, as they say, is history!
