Part of the : San Diego Tango Escapade weekend.
Santiago Castro & Fernanda Valdovinos (Chile) Known not only for his elegance, precision and musicality, Santiago combines improvisation with the elegance and flavor of the milonguero style. He is faithful and devoted to the kind of tango he believes is the authentic tango–i.e. the kind of tango which emphasizes the embrace, walking, music, the feeling, respect and codes. He nurtures his students to help them become better dancers and inspires them so that they can feel and understand tango not only as a dance, but as an attitude and a way of life.
Fernanda began dancing tango in Chile. Besides her emotional sensitivity and tango experience, she is an intellectual with a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. With this, she is a wonderful complement to Santiago’s long experience in tango, as together they are able to think and feel deeply about the tango culture, the emotions that emerge through the music, and the connection established by the embrace.
