Come meet us up close...
With roots from Buenos Aires, Norwich, France, Italy and New Zealand, our dance style is as eclectic as our origins!
We would like to show off that we were both born in the dangerous suburbs of Buenos Aires, learning how to survive with a sharp knife always in our back pocket, hearing lullabies with a sad bandoneon in the background and crying out for our misfortunes. But it is not completely the truth. In a way, our story resembles more the one of those peregrin immigrants who came to Argentina at the beginning of the XXth century: 10 years ago, we meet in a tango dance floor in Napier, New Zealand, as far from Norwich (Melanie’s born place) and Buenos Aires (Lucas’) as can possibly can be.
Since then, they both have been dancing, learning and teaching together, half of their lives in Buenos Aires and the other half in England. They have travelled from an open embrace and a more experimental approach to a more traditional and technical style of dancing but trying always to keep the fun and the passion which gave them the best tandas and a beautiful tiny tanguera, Eloisa.
