Mariano "Chicho" Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda

Mariano Frumboli, also known as Chicho, has undoubtedly played the main role in the creative evolution of tango in the last 10 years. He is renowned worldwide as one of the founders and initiators of Tango Nuevo. He is famous for his personality, musicality and creativity. A true representative of the "New Generation," Chicho brings all his talent and freshness to the dance. He teaches with love and talent, combined with a profound understanding of the dance. His classes are a must for those just approaching the Nuevo Tango style, as well as for experienced dancers. Chicho's work has been one of the biggest gifts that an artist could have given to any art form: the continuous questioning, the research, the quest for originality, and full-hearted creativity.

Chicho began playing drums at 14 years old, and studied theater for 8 years before discovering the tango. He has studied and worked closely with Gustavo Naviera and Fabian Salas. His dancing is characterized above all by musicality and improvisation. In a unique way, he expresses the essence of the music in his dancing. In his teaching, he emphasizes being conscious of the body's movement. Chicho's theatrical background influenced tango dance by adding aesthetics and forms never used before in tango, which at that time went directly against the established rules of social tango but that today are used among professionals and amateurs all around the world.

Juana Sepulveda, is one of the youngest-born stars in the tango sky, she spans the entire range of expression from an innovative subtlety to a stunning manifestation of power in every movement, always matched by her unswerving musicality and pure sensuality.
