Hernán is one of the most authentic and respected dancers by the milongueros. Beloved by all the “Ancients” of Buenos Aires, loved by all the former dancers, Hernan holds the most precious secrets and “yeites”. He makes demos in the most traditional milongas and is applauded. He was a pupil of the greatest milongueros and accompanied the “great maestras” Nélida Fernandez, La Negra Margarita and Ofelia Rosito. Today, he travels the world giving workshops and performances.

Eugenia & Hernán
We can see Eugenia and Hernán dancing together in the film NOSOTROS, in 2006, they were already friends and loved to dance every Sunday in Buenos Aires since 2004. Despite the distance, every year Hernan comes to Europe and Eugenia goes to Buenos Aires to share the pleasure of dancing together. They performed together at the Canning Salon, El Floreo, Lo de Celia, the Patio de Tango, La Porteña and the Antwerp International Festival.
Caretakers of tradition and of its transmission, both having danced with ancients, their dance tasting the 40’s, when the dancers sparkled with youth and the dances were animated by the rhythm of D’ Arienzo. A dance of the suburbs, simple and fresh, unpretentious, but full of musicality and emotion.
