This famous tango couple barely needs an introduction! We are so delighted to host them in Washington DC for the first time ever. Do not miss their spectacular workshops and performance.

Roxana had already listened to Tango music in her mother’s womb. As a young child, she used to go with her to the milonga her grand mother Martita organised in the Congresso district in Buenos Aires. She grew up immersed in Tango, watching the best dancers of the time and learning from famous maestros.

Sebastian discovered Tango when he was 15, after a friend made him join a Tango club. At that moment, without even realising it, he was at a turning point in his life. In 2005, he decided to take part in the Tango World Championship with Ximena Gallichio and they became World Champions.

Sebastian and Roxana united their careers in February 2007. Since then they have taught together and have danced in the most famous milongas porteñas and have taken part in Tango festivals worldwide (Americas, Europe and Oceania).
