At their school in Argentina, they teach social and stage tango to people as young as five, and all the way to adults – including differently-abled individuals.

Both Celina and Hugo have had extensive artistic training from an early age in ballet, Argentine folklore, music, flamenco, and even figure skating. When Tango entered their lives, they had the influence of a great number of mentors. They now lead Argentine Tango Company, which has participated in events around the globe. With its own character and incomparable esthetic, the company creates fantastic performances of Argentine Tango, complete with fantastic costumes and unique skills, embodying musicality and imaginative choreography.
