Burleigh and Joanne play the early tango for dancers. Early compositions from Villoldo,Greco, Arolas and others are the center of our repertoire. Our emphasis is on getting the sound of the small bands from the turn of the century.

Luna Palacios was born in Buenos Aires. The greatest inspiration for her was her teacher and friend, the late Carlos Gavito. Shortly after they met, Carlos became Luna's artistic mentor. She became the favourite dancing partner of several great dancers such as: Oliver Kolker, “El Flaco” Dany Garcia, Horacio Britos (aka: PIbe Avellaneda), y Carlos Copello.
She had travelled extensively to teach and perfom in Argentina and overseas. Luna has also performed in every single important venue in Buenos Aires: Club Sunderland, Salon Canning, La Viruta, La Baldosa, Glorias Argentinas, El Arranque, Porteno y Bailarin among others.
Nowadays, she travels back and forth from Argentina to perform and teach in different places around the world. Her intuitive style of teaching opens the door of enjoyment to everyone that is interested in this popular dance.
Luna’s ultimate goal is to make contagious to everyone, her love and understanding of her greatest passion: Tango Argentino.

Diego Mohammad was born in Villa Urquiza, Buenos Aires to a family of tango dancers. Diego Mohammad has had great successes in competitions such as 2nd place in the Metropolitano de Tango Salon - Buenos Aires 2008, Finalist in the Mundial de Tango - Buenos Aires 2008 and 2009, 1st place in the "Most elegant couple" category in the Mundial de Tango - Buenos Aires 2009 . Diego has taught along side teachers such as Gabriel Misse with whom he co created "La Practica a La Antigua" in Buenos Aires and for five years Diego has assisted Carlos and Rosa Perez, well known and respected teachers of the Sunderland Club milonga.

Eva Carrozza began dancing tango after seeing street performers improvising in the Ramblas of Barcelona in '92 (when the city was preparing for the Olympic games and street performances abounded!) Fascinated by the connection evident in this dance -- she took her first classes with Danel & Maria Bastone, pioneers of social tango in New York City. Since then, she has studied with Guillermina Quiroga, Facundo Posadas, Julio Balmaceda & Corina de la Rosa, Graciela Gonzalez, Pablo Veron, and many other great teachers during travels to Buenos Aires and tango congresses around the United States. A brief, but illuminating partnership with dancer and author Ramiro Gigliotti (El Veneno de Tango, 2009) from 2002-2004 brought the influence of Villa Urquiza style of dancing tango to Eva's dancing. Over the years she has performed with Ney Melo, Murat Erdemsel, Eduardo Goytia, and Ramiro Gigliotti. Teaching, she emphasizes refining the connection through improving posture, flexibility and security in the embrace, and going deeper into the music to bring the partnership to a richer experience of tango. There are no short cuts! View an improvisation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pziTBYGWHlo


Eva Carrozza began her dance career as a modern dancer. Eva's immersion into social dancing began in 1993. She loves teaching and performing. She is a senior teaching artist with the American Ballroom Theater's Dancing Classrooms. A program founded by Pierre Dulaine & Yvonne Marceau. This program was featured in the documentary Mad Hot Ballroom and the film, Take the Lead.

In recent years, she has toured with the big band revue: Forever Swing. She performed tango with the New York City Ballet program Ballet for Young People at New York State Theatre and appeared in the Wendy Taucher production Carly Simon Dances with original and previously recorded compositions by Carly Simon. If you watch channel 13 in NYC, you will probably see Eva dancing tango on the station identifications.

Atención Muchachas

I must announce that I bought a pair of comme il faut tango shoes from Chino.
I could not resist.
They are so damn hot.
I have no idea when I will wear them.
I took my Dance Partner to buy some shoes and my inner tanguera just came raging out and I couldn't leave until I bought her a pair of shoes.
I haven't followed much for years but lately, more guys ask me to dance and I usually follow them in my Fabio tango sneakers. They are great as I can lead and follow in them.
I had a pair of character shoes with a heel when I first started dancing. I loaned them to a student for a competition and never got them back. So I guess it's important to me to have a pair of heels lurking around.
Atención! as one of these days my comme il fauts will make their debut...
