GUILLERMO CERNEAZ is one of the most creative, fun, and multi-dimensional tango dancers in the current world of tango. Born & raised in Buenos Aires, Guilley started dancing tango at the age of 19. He has been teaching tango for over 17 years in Buenos Aires & around the world.

GABY MATALONI, also a porteña, has been connected to the world of Dance since her childhood. At the age of 21, moved by the desire of learning more about her own culture and traditions, she discovers Tango, finding in it her real passion and vocation.

This pair is fully committed to transmit Tango dance and its culture in a simple and fun way. Since 2014 they partnered up to teach and perform in several festivals and workshops around the world. San Miguel Tango Festival in Mexico was their first one together, and the kick off of some great and intense experiences together such as Portland Tango Festival 2015, Slat Lake City Spring Festival 2016 and 2017 and Natural Tango Festival 2016 and 2017, where they'll also be taking part in the 2018 and 10th and closing edition of the festival!! They've also taken part in Oniria, a Tango theatre show that was on stage as part of Natural Tango Festival 2016 and that included both national and international artists on scene!

In these years, Guille and Gaby have developed together a teaching style that not only involves high quality technical information, but also focuses on making the process enjoyable, fun and accesible to every student. Their lessons are distinguished by their charisma, accuracy and a high energetic level. We learn better when we have fun! As performers, their energy and vibe also shows in every dance they do: from deeply emotional Puglieses to crazy fusion alternative dances, going through really milongueras milongas, they succeed at transmiting the escense of Tango and the Argentinian culture itself. Tango can be fun, and they show it can!

All in all, through these years of working together, Guille and Gaby have settled the bases of their own teaching and dancing styles and have many students that follow them to keep growing and sharing and having fun and dancing while they learn with them. Don't miss this opportunity to keep working hard while having fun and learing the whole culture of Tango!

And, if you want to see some of their work, here is a little sneak-peack into Guille and Gaby's Tango World:
