Juan Martin Carrara - Stefania Colina

Tango Salón dancers and Choreoraphers

They won the 2009 Intercontinental Tango Salón Championship and Uruguayan Tango Salón Championship in 2012. Young, extremely talented and diligent, they dance with an immense respect for the tradition and the music, and yet keep working on new forms of expression and their own development in the salon and on the stage. Being extremely popular teachers in Buenos Aires, Montevideo and the entire world, their classes allow one to hear and feel what is most intangible in tango. Their exquisite musicality, charm and sensibility have won them many hearts in all over the globe.

Juan Martin Carrara

started his dancing career when he was 13 years old as a ballet and contemporary dancer and an actor of musical comedy. At the age of 16 he entered in the Nacional Academy of Dance of Uruguay and was selected for the "Young Ballet", touring all the theatres of the region as a performer of modern and clasic Ballet. After a few years he met with tango and at the same time with Stefanía Colina, and fell in love with both.

Stefania Colina

started her career as a ballet and contemporary dancer in the "Orlama" School at the age of 4 year-old. She graduated at 17, after 13 years of intense training and became a teacher of the school. During that time she had the opportunity to experience many dance styles that were taught as a complement to ballet, that is how she met with tango and Juan Martin, and from that day started a passionate life-changing story for both of them.

Together they left all they had

in Uruguay and moved almost immediately to Buenos Aires with nothing more than their intense desire to dance and teach tango. After a few years of working hard at improving their level and knowledge, they won the "Intercontinental Championship" in 2009 and the Uruguayan Tango salon Champinship in 2012.
Since then, they have been teaching and dancing around the world. They perform regularly in the milongas of Buenos Aires with prestigious orchestras such as "Color Tango" "Los Reyes del Tango" "Orquestra Sans Souci", "Orquestra Mariano Mores". Their fame and uniqueness comes from their elegance, sensuality and musicality. They are also known for their successful and engaging teaching method.
In the last years they have been in some of the most important festivals from Europe.

He first came into contact with Argentinean tango in 2011 as a student in the dance field of the National and Technical University of Athens. Since then he began to attend intensive classes near Argentine dancers. The attendance of exclusive lessons next to his main teacher Gabriel Marino contributed to the deeper knowledge of the tango and the Argentine culture that accompanies it. At the same time, his general interest in dancing led him to attend classical and contemporary dance classes, aiming at the acquisition of a wider dance education.
