We met at Floreal Milonga, Bs As in 2012. Our instant connection, understanding and enjoyment was the starting point of years of dancing together in “las milongas” of Bs As. Our intimate and passionate dance respects and re-interprets the inheritance of our referents. We define ourselves as dancers “al piso”. We are both now based in Berlín.
