World Tango Champion (2005) Sebastian Achaval and Roxana Suarez
Sydney, 8-13 July 2014
Roxana Suarez & Sebastián Achaval are beautiful Salon Tango dancers, who are sought after as teachers and performers by festivals all over the world.
Roxana 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 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.
After having walked through Tango roads for more than 10 years, studying with the most representative teachers, Roxana and Sebastián joined their methods and techniques to start a common career back in February 2007. Since then they have been teaching group and private classes in renowned studios and Milongas in Buenos Aires in addition to performing regularly in the city’s famous dance-floors.
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.
In each show, whether on a dance floor or a stage, they underline the essence and tradition of Tango in its golden times, with a young and authentic view.
In 2013, they delighted Australia with their performance at the internationally renowned Tango Show “Tango y Nada Mas!”, staged at the Concourse Theatre in Sydney.
