We are VERY proud to present a unique tango experience with the great maestros

Carlos Perez & Rosa Forte (BsAs)

 

In the WEEKEND OF 18th and 19th of May 2019 our beloved friends and ‘maestros of the maestros’ Carlitos Perez and Rosa Forte will be visiting the Netherlands for the very first time, to teach Argetine tango and just as they’ve been doing in their famous Sunderland practicum in Villa Urquiza, Buenos Aires for over 25 years now.

 

Carlitos Perez is one of the few left that was dancing and performing in the salons of Buenos Aires in the 50’s. At the age of 13, in 1953, he started learning from some of the most celebrated milongueros of that time, like Jose “Lampazo” Vasquez, Portalea Gerardo, Alberto Villarrazo, Osvaldo “Nene Fo” Mossi and Eduardo “Pajerita” Pareja.

 

Between 1955 and 1960 he was already giving demonstrations in the popular milongas of Buenos Aires.

 

At the beginning of the 1990’s he returned to the tango scene at the request of his friend Jose Vasquez and started teaching and performing with Rosa Forte. For 25 years now they’ve been hosting a famous practicum in the legendary Club Sunderland in Villa Urquiza, and played an important role in connecting the youth with the history, technique and muiscality of traditional tango.

 

Apart from Buenos they’ve been travelling all around the world, from America to Europe to Asia. And due to their exellent knowledge of tango and eye for detail they’ve often been invited as jury for tango championships like the Mundial de tango (world championships of tango in Buenos Aires).

 

Some say you can judge a master by the quaility of his students. And Carlitos Perez and Rosa Forte have proven to be truly amazing masters. They are even called ‘maestros de los maestros’ (masters of the masters).

 

Among their students are many of todays world class dancers and world champions of tango salón like:
Sebastian Jimenez & Maria Inez Bogado; Fabian Peralta & Natacha Poberaj; Sebastian Achaval & Marí¬a Ximena Gallicchio; Dante Sanchez & Inés Muzzopappa; Hiroshi & Kyoko Yamao; Maximiliano Cristiani & Jesica Arfenoni; Diego Julián Benavidez & Natasha Agudelo; Cristina Sosa & Daniel Nacucchio; Cristian Sosa & Lida.
