“We started dancing 13 years ago. Our paths crossed in the beginning of 2016. We are professional tango teachers and dancers and we like to focus on the connection, elegance, musicality, dynamics and quality of movement. We love social dancing, specially the milonguero style. The most important thing in tango for us is the connection. We are crazy about technique but only as a medium to improve the connection and feelings that will allow us to adapt to every body and every style. We believe in dancing as one body with four legs, the centaur. Communication between us is the key for our tango. Listening to the leader is as important as listening to the follower. Open your mind, close the embrace”

The Show
The Show is a journey through the most refined aesthetics of Argentine tango which, without losing its essence, is approached from the perspective of modern sounds.
The repertoire spans from Manzi to Celedonio, from Gardel to Cadícamo, cruising through a large array of Argentinean folk songs.

About Patricia Noval
”Patricia Noval is an Argentine tango interpreter born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since her artistic debuts in the 90s she has maintained an aesthetic and cultural track that dives into the roots of tango, processed through current musical trends. Her musical research reflects the encounter between a refined aesthetic and an unmistakable suburban style. Focusing on interpretation and poetry, she travels fluently through the tragedy and comedy of the genre to embrace her own musical territory.

She has performed on the most diverse scenes in America (Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Chile) and Europe (Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Switzerland and now Sweden).”
