Sebastián Achával and Roxana Suárez
The most eminent representatives of the young tango salón generation, combining the greatest traditions with youthful energy and genuine passion. They dance with lightness and elegance, agility and precision. For them what matters in tango most are feelings and the quality of movement.
In 2005, Sebastián won the World Tango Championships. Roxana, chosen as the best young dancer in 2004, honed her skills in the Tango Styles Academy. They are celebrated teachers at countless workshops and festivals all over the world, and their presence causes a great commotion everywhere they go. Loved by all and sundry, they have been with us since our very beginnings.
Fabián Peralta and Josefina Bermúdez Ávila
Fabián Peralta was 23 when he began his tango education with Maestro Mingo Pugliese. Thereafter he worked as a performance dancer with several Buenos Aires “casas del tango." He has been an artistic director for the Corporación Tango show and has performed in Tango x 2, Solo Tango and Copes Tango Copes, among others. He is a professor at the Carlos Copello tango school, invited to numerous festivals around the world. In 2006 he won the International Tango Championships (Tango Salón category), which he considers to be his greatest achievement to date.
Josefina Bermúdez Ávila grew up with dance. She learned modern ballet at the Oscar Araiz school and she has danced with the company directed by him. She discovered tango at age eleven. Since then her career has been divided between these two types of dance. She teaches at the Carlos Copello school; her career has taken a new turn alongside Fabián Peralta.
Their dance together is exquisite and refined, permeated with timeless elegance and yet amazing lightness and sense of humour.
Juan Martín Carrara and Stefanía Colina
Juan Martín Carrara and Stefanía Colina are the 2009 Intercontinental Tango Salón Champions, originally from Uruguay.

Their exquisite musicality, charm and sensibility have won them many hearts in £ód¼: three years ago they were applauded so frenetically, they started a new tradition of numerous encores!
