August is looking a lot brighter with the arrival of our star guest teachers – Junior Cervila and Guadalupe Garcia – who gave their first class at Tango Movement last night.
Junior and Guadalupe will be running our Tango Movement Summer School. We are thrilled to have them and we hope you will come to their lessons and make the most of their short stay!
Junior Cervila is a tango dancer of international acclaim.
He was born in Sao Paulo Brazil. In 1991, he travelled to Buenos Aires to study with legendary tango maestros Pepito Avellaneda, Antonio Todaro and Juan Carlos Copes. He immersed himself in tango, while also dancing in the milongas of Buenos Aires.
In the 1990’s, he started touring the world with tango companies. In 1997, he had a starring role in the film “Tango” by Carlos Saura.
He later performed on Broadway in the Tony Award nominated “Tango Argentino”. The show played a pivotal role in the resurgence of tango’s popularity worldwide. Suddenly, everyone wanted to dance tango – the argentine way. It is widely acknowledged that “Tango Argentino” played a huge role in making Argentine tango the global phenomenon that it is today.
Junior later became a principal dancer in international shows such as “Tanguera”, “Tango y Fuga” and “Tango Emotion”.
In 2006 and 2011, Junior joined the cast of “Tango Argentino” for its last performance at the Obelisco in Buenos Aires to an audience of 15,000. In 2006, he performed with Mora Godoy in the Theatre Colon, Buenos Aires. In the New Year of 2007, he again performed at the Obelisco in a concert with Daniel Baremboin.
Junior and Guadalupe have recently been selected as the tango couple for the latest Broadway production of “Evita”. They will join the cast this Autumn.
Junior and Guadalupe not only are exceptional dancers but also highly experienced teachers, not to mention friendly, down-to-earth people.
From 8 to 23 August, Junior and Guadalupe will be covering all our drop-in classes ,They will also be giving two unique workshops with elements for tango salon on Saturdays 12 and 19 August.
