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.
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.

creatively shape their own language.

milongas of Buenos Aires, as well as Workshops and lectures in the US
and Europe, where he takes part of international tango meetings and

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.
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.

|Ana Miguel and Oscar Casas
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.
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.
