A young Tango couple has attracted my attention. These are Mariano Bielak y Paula Gurini.
I can not refuse an opportunity to be acquainted to, learn from, and enjoy movements of this most promising of the young Tango dancers. So, we are going to have workshops with them!
2009 November 2
Yesterday I've seen Mariano and Paula perform at Gracia. These are the most incredible tango dancers ! Everything it perfect - rhythmics, musicality, complexity of the dance - they dance fast and so reach with figures. Their creativity is superb, they knowledge of tango is beyond anyone else. Their dances are true masterpieces. Without doubt they are among the very best tango dancers ever visited San Francisco. May be they are the very best !
I have heard they are good teachers too. Here is the Mayumi's schedule of their workshops in San Francisco and Bay Area. Check it out ! So:
