Anibal Lautaro & Valeria Maside
Aníbal & Valeria, as an Argentine couple of dancers and teachers, represent the traditional style of Buenos Aires with great personality and a youthful touch. They belong to the last generation formed by real milongueros and grandmasters. Their lessons and personal style have led them to traveling around the world with different shows or as teachers at prestigious festivals.
For 12 years now they they have developed a teaching method aiming to simplify the difficult, comfort, hug and encourage naturalness, although without neglecting aesthetics. Their curiosity made them take classes with many teachers and discover very different styles, making them experience different types of hugs, energy, techniques and interpretations that are now very useful to harness the talents and capabilities of each student.
