Susana Miller
Susana Miller is the most prominent teacher in the world of the “milonguero” style of tango or what Argentines call “apilado”. This style is danced in the crowded clubs of central Buenos Aires. It is strictly a social style that emphasizes musicality and the connection between partners. Susana has researched and studied the dancing of the older milongueros, each of whom has created their unique style of tango. She has been able to decipher their distinct vocablularies and choreographic combinations, and is gifted in her ability to convey these to students.
Susana encourages students to employ more rhythm in their dance, to discover their own dance vocabularies, and to learn how to shape and shrink these in space. For women, she encourages active following, in which the woman interprets the messages that the leader's body and the spirit are sending. Clarin, the major Buenos Aires daily paper, called her one of the four most important influences on contemporary tango, along with Miguel Angel Zotto, Gustavo Naveira and Gerardo Portalea.
Susana is a native of Buenos Aires and has been dancing and teaching tango since the late 1980s revival of social tango. She founded and operates her own tango academy in Buenos Aires, and is the owner of one of Buenos Aires'most popular tango club, El Beso. She has made annual teaching tours to the United States and Europe since 1994. She will facilitate students' improvement of posture, axis, grounding, breathing, balance and sensitivity to the lead and follow roles. She aims to encourage dancers to develop their own unique improvisational styles through knowledge of the music, space and body. Her classes will emphasize step quality and rhythm. Rather than predetermined patterns, she will impart a choreographic vocabulary that allows dancers to creatively shape their own language.

Maria Olivera & Gustavo Benzecry Sabá
Gustavo Benzecry Sabá was born in Buenos Aires and raised in Palermo area. He came to Tango at the end of the 1990’s. His experience as a teacher in other fields allowed him to trespass the limits of showing  “movements” to place himself as a reference of Tango dance not only as a physical activity but moreover as a philosophy.
He teaches regular classes at Salón Canning and Workshops in several milongas of Buenos Aires, as well as Workshops and lectures in the US and Europe, where he takes part of international tango meetings and Festivals.
As a dancer, Gustavo stands out for his agility and most of all for his endless creativity, which he bases in the ability of dominating the techniques and exploring the possibilities he’s being offered through the embrace and the release of the emotions.
Maria Olivera was born in Buenos Aires and raised in San Telmo, within a family of “tangueros”. When she was in her twenties she felt inspired by her deep love for the music and the poetry of her childhood and decided to start dancing it. She first studied with Gustavo, and soon after she became his assistant in class and later on his partner. Her method combines the passion and love for the dance with a deep knowledge about anatomy and kinetics that she acquired from other disciplines such us yoga, stretching and Pilates. Maria regularly teaches at Salón Canning and leads Workshops in other milongas and dance studios of the city. She also tours the world being part of Seminars, Festivals and performances.
Her hallmark as a dancer is the Speedy and expressiveness of her feet, which she combines with the elegance of her walking and posture.

Ana Miguel and Oscar Casas
Oscar was born in Parque Patricios, a well-known tango barrio in Buenos Aires. His parents were avid tango dancers, and, in the 1950's and '60's, they organized three different milongas per week, which regularly drew in 400-500 dancers. Oscar was very much influenced by his father, both by osmosis and discussion. He absorbed the code (codigo) of the milongueros, and when he eventually decided to take up the dance seriously, he already had a background and base that was the envy of many.
Oscar has a distinct style both in his dance and his teaching. He is very milonguero, and is many respected by the old guard in the milongas of BA. He is also extremely popular with his students, who are impressed by his teaching style. He teaches with energy and humor, emphasizing concepts, specializing in improvisation always interpreting the music and respecting the character of the different orchestras. He is especially interested in the dynamics and cadencia of the dance. Everything he teaches is applicable to crowded milongas.
Ana Miguel started her Argentine Tango training in the dance school of Moron Jose Neglia. She started teaching with the famous Argentine tango instructor and performer, Pocho Pizarro. From 2005 to 2008, Ana Miguel performed in the Show “Bacanazo” which was held in the Empire Theatre and the Roman Theatre in BA and she also performed as part of the show at Esquina Carlos Cardel from 2006 to 2010 in BA. Moreover, Ana Miguel has taught tango at various tango festivals and was also a tango teacher at ACETA (Academia de Estilos de Tango Argentino – Academy of Argentine Tango Styles) from 2006 to 2010.
