Chicho and Juana are recognized worldwide as one of the most amazing and creative tango couple. As dance partners since 2007, they form a unique duo in the artistic and pedagogical sense.

Their dance is beyond styles. Their perfect technique allows them to effortlessly express their souls through the elegance of their moves at the call of the beat. It is not enough to say that they dance to the music. Probably the music dances them.
