About Oscar & Marie

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 much respected by the old guard in the milongas of Bs. As. He is also extremely popular with his students, who are impressed by his teaching style. He teaches with energy and humer, emphasizing concepts, specializing in improvisation, always interpreting the music and respect the character of the different orchestras. He is especially intereasted in the dynamics and cadencia of the dance. Everything he teaches is applicable to crowded milongas.

Marie’s love of dance started at an early age with training in classical ballet, jazz, tap and modern dance. She studied in the prestigious dance program of Brigham Young University. It was there where she was first introduced to partner dancing. Marie trained in International and American style ballroom and Latin dancing and performed with the Ballroom Dance Company. After college Marie returned home to Indiana where she met and married Bryan Roach and started her career in teaching. She discovered her next love in 2003, Argentine tango. Her passion for this dance altered her career path. She has studied with some of the best tango teachers in the world, including Oscar Casas, whom she met on one of her many trips to Buenos Aires.


Marie opened Riolo Dance, her own studio in downtown Indianapolis, to provide a venue for tango to grow. It includes two incredible studios for hosting weekly classes, workshops, milongas and other tango events. Marie is an accomplished teacher with proficiency as a lead as well as a follow. She is unfailingly patient and enthusiastic and her love of tango comes across in her teaching as well as in her dancing.
