I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.


The physical presence of our partner, here and now, is an invitation that can either be accepted or refused, but is hard to postpone.

Let’s do what we consider to be the best, in every moment, and do it in the most efficient way.

Let’s free ourselves from the actitudes which enclosed our bodies in a shell of prejudice, conformity and cowardice, a shell which made our body redundant.

Own it, care for it, use it, dance with it.

If we are not our body, it is at least a part of our world which remains present to us at all times.

Contemplate the continuity with ourselves, our body and the world with the other people in it.

Let’s be inspired to be productive, selecting creativity rather than inertia or anger. 

Words are an indispensable tool to determine our relationships to objects, both in the case of our interactions with things and in the interactions between people in relation to things (for instance: our belongings).

However, regarding interpersonal relationships, the objective word may be useless.

Challenge, creativity and embrace make most words superfluous.

Dance is a manifestation of our essential freedom of being, making existence beautiful.

“Duelo criollo” por Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica con Jorge Durán, 1946.

Lito Bayardo

Guitarrista, cantor, compositor y letrista
(3 marzo 1905 – 7 marzo 1986)

Este artista rosarino, se encontró con la música de adolescente, cuando los estribillistas estaban por asomar en las orquestas y, todavía, los hermanos De Caro no habían hecho la aparición renovadora que causaría otro momento de inflexión, el definitivo, en la historia musical del tango.

Cuando más de medio siglo después le preguntaron sobre el tango actual, dijo: «Ha surgido una nueva teoría modernista que se basa en un tango cerebral, pero retorcido. Se ha subestimado la labor de los consagrados de la primera etapa para dar paso a una música de técnica endurecida y antipopular. Entre los músicos que lo interpretan hay grandes valores, pero han desvirtuado el ritmo del verdadero tango». Leer más.
