Tango comes in the ear, is filtered by the heart and soul,
and is expressed by our feet and abrazo.

The art of tango is dancing the silences.

Tango is an immigrant dance and music. It's only passport is feeling.
Carlos Gavito

Countdown to Midsummer Milonga Weekend in Uffelte










Your maestros Mariano y Cosima

With 25+ years of Tango experience, your maestros Mariano y Cosima have spread their passion for Tango Argentino in 15 different countries, on 4 continents (Europe, South-America, Asia, Canada). Thousands of dancers, from absolute beginners to teachers and professional dancers, have joined their classes for the past decades. They have toured with many renowned orchestras in theatres and concert halls in The Netherlands and Japan. They have performed and taught at many tangofestivals worldwide. They organised tangoholidays in Argentina and Europe.

Authentic Argentine Tango

Their tango is authentic Argentine and rooted in family history. Mariano is born in Buenos Aires en and 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).
