Abrazo, Mariano y Cosima
Your Maestros Mariano y Cosima
As teachers Mariano and Cosima are specialized in healthy tango technique with an elegant and natural style for both roles.
Mariano was born in Buenos Aires and he grew up in a tango family. His grandfather ran a tango venue in the city where he lived, and Mariano's mother was a pioneer in Argentine Tango in the Netherlands and surrounding countries; she passed on the legacy to her son. Encouraged by his maestro Antonio Todaro and by family friend Osvaldo Pugliese, he decided at the young age of seventeen to pursue a career as a professional tangodancer.
Cosima has danced and played violin since early childhood. She explored different styles of dance and music, until she fell for Tango Argentino in 1996, which led her to a fulltime career as a professional tango dancer.
Mariano & Cosima met each other in 2001 and they have been performing & teaching together for over two decades. They trained intensively in Buenos Aires with renowned names of the tango world. Their style is classical Argentine tango. To the expertise of the couple Cosima added her musical knowledge of tango (she studied Argentine tango on violin at CODARTS, the Rotterdam Conservatory 1996-1997), and her knowledge in healthy body movements and posture (she is a certificated posture therapist since 2001 and physiotherapist since 2004).
Mariano & Cosima are passionate tango teachers, and their classes are very appreciated by their students, in particular the effective pedagogy. The couple knows very well to work with a group, by creating a light, and relaxed atmosphere with a pinch of humor. There is in their teaching a good balance of explanation and practice, with feedback to the group and individually. They know how to combine technique and the feeling of the dance, with focus on the essence of tango in their classes. With subtle and accurate corrections so that a tango student can evolve his or her tango style.
Their main focus points of Mariano & Cosima are:
- Healthy movements, relaxed energy, complete awareness of corporal coordination and feeling;
- Quality of movement, connection within the couple and musicality
" Oh, how wonderful to continue dancing and learning from you! Thank you for the beautiful classes. Looking forward to the new season! "
" Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your classes. I need these so much"
