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.
