Hi tangueros,
We are very happy to announce the fantastic Bristol Tango Weekender with Neri and Yanina. This will be their first time ever in Bristol and their only workshops in the U.K.
About the Maestros:
Yanina Quiñones and Neri Piliu have been dancing together for 15 years. They founded the Corazon Al Sur Tango Club Academy in Salerno. They are renowned tango maestros who have taught thousands of dancers from 35 countries worldwide, including numerous teachers who today teach internationally. They are also the founders, artistic directors and choreographers of the Tango Rouge Company and have worked in the best tango shows with Natalia Hills, Tangueros del Sur and the legendary Miguel Angel Zotto.
They were professionally trained at the Academia de Estilos de Tango Argentino by famous milongueros and teachers such as Carlos Perez and Rosa, Pupi Castello, Gloria and Eduardo Arquimbau, Gerardo Portalea, Toto Faraldo and Milena Plebs, amongst many others. They achieved second place in the world championships in Buenos Aires (tango salon) and have won a series of other awards, including the Golden Colibri at the European Dance Awards (Germany) and the Rodolfo Valentino Italian Excellence award as a ‘revelation couple’. They are regularly invited to major tango festivals all around the world and perform in the most well-known milongas of Buenos Aires.
Aside from all of this, they are also extremely generous, warm and skilled teachers, who explain concepts with clarity and humour. We feel honoured to have them here in Bristol this year, and we are certain that you will enjoy their classes!
