Buenos Aires, Argentina
Raquel Makow as a small child was a natural dancer and performer. She trained in ballet, jazz, and ballroom, and learned Tango as a teenager when visiting her family in Buenos Aires.
As a professional Latin ballroom dancer, she participated in several international competitions in Europe and the US earning final placements and winning the title of Portuguese National Champion. At a certain point she discovered that Argentine tango was her true passion and left her competition years behind to dedicate herself to perfect her tango dancing in Buenos Aires.
Maxi Copello was born breathing Tango as the son of a world-renowned dancer, Carlos Copello. In his childhood he would go along with his father to the theater, seating in the lighting booth watching each Tango show with awe and admiration. At a certain point, curiosity and his genes won him over and Tango became his biggest passion. Since then, he directed and acted in several Tango movies and has traveled the world teaching and dancing tango in Europe, Asia, and even at Broadway.
