Roxana Suarez & Sebastian Achaval

The most eminent representatives of the so called young tango de salon generation, combining the greatest traditions with fresca energy and genuine passion. Their style is characterised by lightness and elegance, agility and precision.

Both began to dance in their childhood. Roxana began to listen to tango while in her mother’s belly and grew up in her grandmother’s milonga, watching the best dancers of the time dance. Sebastián began studying tango in the city of Azul, in the province of Buenos Aires in 1995 and in 2005 he won the World Tango Salon Championship.

In February 2007 they joined their paths and never stopped growing. In the beginning they worked teaching in renowned studios in Buenos Aires and exhibiting in Buenos Aires milongas. Very quickly tours around the world started to happen, and have come to visit all continents. Loved by all and sundry, they are invited to give workshops and participate in prestigious international festivals such as TanGoToIstanbul, Mallorca Tango Festival, Taipei Tango Festival, among others, and their presence causes great commotion, even in their native milongas of Buenos Aires.

Since 2010 they perform in great theaters with Tango Mas Tango Company. They have also taken part as guest artists in Descarnados, The Show, from Sabrina and Ruben Veliz and El Cruxe, from Vanesa Villalba y Facundo Piñero. They have also created her own tango space in Buenos Aires, called Ensueño”, nowadays run by Roxana’s mom

na 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.
