Born in Argentina, through his family and the community that saw his upbringing, Marcelo has been intimately involved with Tango all his life. Marcelo has been an Argentine Tango dancer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. His love for Tango dancing and tango music, particularly from the 1930’s through the 1940’s, is undeniable when you meet him. Marcelo is a milonguero.
As Tango instructor Marcelo makes emphasis on musicality and the connection of dance partners to each other and the music, he stresses that Tango is a social dance framed by a specific set of values that are expressed through its codes of etiquette, and he encourages and promotes his students ability to improvise on the dance floor.
