Roberto Herrera & Laura Legazcue
Roberto Herrera was one of the students of the legendary maestro and milonguero Antonio Todaro, one of the figures who brought tango back to life and created a whole generation of prominent tangueros - Gustavo Naveira, Carlos Copello, Osvaldo Zotto, Miguel Zotto, Guillermina Quiroga, Pablo Veron, Vanina Bilous, Alejandra Mantinian, were all among his students. Maestro Todaro had a unique talent of creating original dancers, who later on developed their own distinct styles of dancing, but they all shared the same concepts of Tango and its code. There is no or very little knowledge of Antonio Todaro in the US, but in Argentina he became a referent of Tango, he possessed the simplicity and creativity at the same time, his unstoppable fantasy was full of new ideas and he was never forgetting the roots and at the same time he never stopped dreaming. We should be truly thankful to him for many remarkable tangueros that we are able to study with today.
