About Mario & Anabella (from website dancetango.com):

Mario Consiglieri & Anabella Diaz-Hojman represent the evolution of Argentine Tango. Their background is as creative and diverse (hip-hop, salsa, jazz, contemporary, martial arts) as it is playful.  Mentors include Fabian Salas, Gustavo Naveira and Chicho Frumbolli. Anabella and Mario share a common goal in developing their bodies, minds, and souls to extract and inject excellent dance mechanics into their spontaneous movements.  They are open-hearted instructors, energetic performers, and caring mentors.

Anabella is an incredibly talented dancer and instructor. She has performed and taught with Mario Consiglieri in Syracuse, NY, as well as NYC, NY. She has also partnered with Pablo Inza and Fabrizio Forti in Buenos Aires, Argentina - her hometown. Dancing since she was a child, Anabella has studied contemporary dance, martial arts, and most recently done intensive study with Chicho & Eugenia, the contemporary masters of Tango Nuevo. She is one of the most beloved social dancers in Buenos Aires, and has an incredible sensitivity as a follower. Her knowledge of the dynamics of dance, and musicality, make her an specially valuable asset in a classroom. In 2004, Anabella toured major cities within the US with Mario, and in Europe with Pablo Inza.

Mario has recently established himself as the new rising star of the Nuevo Tango style of dance (under the tutealage of Fabian Salas, Gustavo Naveira and Chicho Frumbolli), further developing a style of Tango which incorporates innovative steps with creative musicality, fluidity, and an increased capacity for self-expression. In 2004, Mario became the first North American instructor invited to teach at Congreso Internacional de Tango Argentino (CITA) held in Buenos Aires, every March. Since 2002 Mario has proved himself to be a dedicated and popular teacher - traveling around the United States giving workshops and performances. His belief that the body can be used in many ways to reflect the different moods in the music, has led him to investigate variations in the qualities of movement, then applying his knowledge to paint movements on the floor, much like an artist would on his canvas. Mario is a dynamic dancer, a charismatic performer, and a caring teacher.

About Oscar & Ana

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.

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 Theater and the Roman Theater in Bs. As. and she also performed as part of the show at Esquina Carlos Cardel from 2006-2010 in Bs. As. 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 2006-2010.
