DANIELA & HERNAN
Currently residing in Chicago, Il, USA
Hernan & Daniela’s approach
Primarily, We’re both born and raised in Buenos Aires Argentina and met more than 15 years ago at La Viruta (the biggest tango school and milonga in BA). We taught there for many years, as well as we learned from some of the more renowned maestros and milongueros.
What an amazing time that was. We were lucky to enjoy a glorious time in tango, social dancing almost every night with a lot of people and watching amazing performances from the best dancers.
One day… our dream came true. In addition we were invited to teach in the US. We toured around North America. Many doors opened for us as we were invited to participate in many important Tango Festivals in the US, Canada and Mexico.
Currently, Hernan and I are settled in Chicago, Illinois and have our own Studio called “Almagro Tango”. Unfortunately, I recently learned that the studio is now closed. Not sure what Hernan is up to, but Daniela, is currently pregnant, and I will endeavor to find out her due date!
In other words our philosophy is: We focus on social tango, paying special attention to the fundamentals, so the students have a clear idea of how to use those elements while improvising.
As Tango teachers, believe that understanding the music and working on musicality and interpretation is a must do, to achieve a good level of dancing. But, the most important of all. We all need to enjoy this and we put our hearts to make people happy through Tango!

Above all, “We have been dancing, travelling and living together for 8 years. We are social dancer, we are performer and now we are teaching tango online.
Starting on our shared adventure, in 2012. Primarily, we were both born in Chile. We started our project working and living in Buenos Aires, working and dancing in local milongas, performing in tango theaters and many Tango shows.
Strongly believing that tango can be compared to a culinary artform. There are tango styles that you may like or not. However, from us, you will always find an inimitable hug and an unmissable tanda.
More so, we recognize ourselves as constantly changing dancers, given over to the music, the audience and each other.” We are always growing and learning.
