BIO OF MARCOS PEREIRA & FLORENCIA BORGNIA
Second place winners in The Buenos Aires City Tango Championship, Tango de Pista, 2015.
Florencia and Marcos formed a partnership in 2013, after more than a decade of individual development and exploration of tango. They studied with the grand masters of argentine tango, achieving a uniquely elegant, refined style of dance, combining elements of traditional tango, with its roots in tango salón, with techniques incorporated through the study of tango escénico, while maintaining the fundamental essence of tango, an intimate connection with the partner through the embrace.
As teachers, they are characterized by their methodical and punctilious technical elements in order to be comfortable, elegant and in constant connection with the partner, always pointing at the importance of both roles in the couple.
Since 2014, Florencia and Marcos have taught at the prestigious Escuela Argentina de Tango in Buenos Aires, throughout Argentina and around the world. They were members of the Corporación Tangos Alumnos, and they also were regulars in shows at the historic Café Tortoni in Buenos Aires. In 2015 they were invited to join the Espacio Nacional de Tango Argentino, an educational institution that aims to preserve the knowledge and experience of tango as a cultural art form, directed by Silvana Grill. That same year they won second place in the Campeonato de Tango de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, a milestone achievement in their dance career.
They continue to explore and refine their understanding of dance, seeking to achieve the most accurate transmission of the roots of tango.
