Giraldo

09 JUN, 30 JUN

Giraldo is one of the UK's top Argentine Tango Dancers, who together with his partner Minaruns the popular Corrientes Social Club in Chalk Farm. Since establishing themselves in London in the late 90s, they have worked extensively as dancers and teachers, while also touring and performing in some of the best theatres across the country and internationally.

Performances include BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, the English National Opera’s production of Carmen, directed by The Tango Lesson’s Sally Potter, and Midnight Tango with Strictly stars Vincent and Flavia.

Giraldo believes that dance has the power to change lives. Sharing his knowledge is not only about passing on Tango legacies and traditions, but is also about witnessing people transforming from shy dance aficionados to confident, proud Tangueros, making every effort that he and Mina put into their Tango classes worthwhile.

Pablo & Florencia

Pablo Nievas & Florencia Fraschina

26 MAY

From an early age, Pablo learned to dance Tango, Waltz and Milonga with his family in Argentina. As was traditional, he first learned the follower’s role, which, as his grandfather explained, was essential in order to be able to guide a woman.  

 

As he grew up, tango became more and more important in his life and he took classes with different Golden Age milongueros, including Rodolfo and Maria Cieri, and Pepito Avellaneda, “The King of the Milonga”, whom he assisted in class. Over his 35 years of Tango experience, Pablo has taught classes all over the world and is recognised worldwide for his own teaching methods and practices.

 

We would also like to welcome to Pavadita Pablo’s partner, Florencia Fraschina. Like Pablo, Florencia’s first experience of Tango was from an early age, watching her grandparents dance. She went on to learn Tango in Buenos Aires, with renowned teachers Raúl Bravo and Rodolfo ‘Cacho’ Dinzel. She performed at many of the Tango shows in Buenos Aires with well known orchestras and singers. After establishing herself in Tango, Florencia developed her artistic skills, with her work being exhibited in Argentina and abroad.
