Fabián Peralta and Josefina Bermúdez Ávila
Fabián Peralta was 23 when he began his tango education with Maestro Mingo Pugliese. Thereafter he worked as a performance dancer with several Buenos Aires “casas del tango." He has been an artistic director for the Corporación Tango show and has performed in Tango x 2, Solo Tango and Copes Tango Copes, among others. He is a professor at the Carlos Copello tango school, invited to numerous festivals around the world. In 2006 he won the International Tango Championships (Tango Salón category), which he considers to be his greatest achievement to date.
Josefina Bermúdez Ávila grew up with dance. She learned modern ballet at the Oscar Araiz school and she has danced with the company directed by him. She discovered tango at age eleven. Since then her career has been divided between these two types of dance. She teaches at the Carlos Copello school; her career has taken a new turn alongside Fabián Peralta.
Their dance together is exquisite and refined, permeated with timeless elegance and yet amazing lightness and sense of humour.

Paulina Cazabón Goméz and José Luis González
Paulina and José Luis are Chilean salón tango stars and experienced, passionate pedagogues. They are the national Chile champions, and in 2010 gained 7th place in the Tango World Championship in Buenos Aires.
Their teachers are the grand Jorge Dispari and María del Carmen Romero, who taught them the essence of salón tango. Their tango is elegant and strong, full of speed and dexterity. Their connection in the embrace, smooth walk and particular use of figures all serve to highlight the music.
They have developed their own teaching method, in which they place especial value on the fundamentals of traditional tango, giving it a fresh look and helping students to understand how the body works, always emphasizing connection, embrace, musicality, walk and personality of each dancer.
In 2014, they received the "Grandes Maestros del Tango en Chile" award by popular vote, which they consider a great sign of recognition of their trajectory and experience.
