Roxana Suarez started listening to tango music when she was in her mother’s womb. Her mother used to go to milongas organized by her grandmother Martita in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She grew up surrounded by tango, watching the best dancers of those times, practicing since she was very young and learning from the best tango teachers in Buenos Aires.

Sebastián Achaval discovered tango when he was 15, after a friend enrolled him at a Tango School. That has taken him, without knowing it, to a key path in his life. Born in the city of Neuquén in the south of Argentina, he decided to move to Buenos Aires, the tango’s capital city, to pursue his professional career. In 2005, he took part in the Tango World Championship, and he became, along with Ximena Gallicchio, the 2005 Tango Salon World Champions.

About their style, they define themselves as “dance-floor” dancers because their dance is intimate and authentic, representing the tango experienced in Buenos Aires Milongas in which feeling is the predominant dimension. It is a very personal style that combines a close but warm and comfortable embrace with the subtleness of figures with quality movements. They add to that the musical performance and the elegance that identify them in their walk.
