Argentine Tango School

“Bailarín compadrito” by Alfredo De Ángelis y su Orquesta Típica with Oscar Larroca in vocals, 1953.

A classic image of Miguel Bucino and Tita Merello dancing tango in a scene from the movie "Noches de Buenos Aires." Captured in a grainy black-and-white format, Bucino, dressed in a suit and hat, embraces Merello, who leans into him with a content expression. This still conveys the emotion and style typical of Argentine tango during the golden era of cinema.

Miguel Bucino

Bandoneonist, dancer, lyricist, and composer (August 14, 1905 – December 15, 1973)

Miguel Bucino initially struggled as a musician but flourished as a tango dancer and composer. Encouraged by Francisco Canaro to dance, he debuted professionally in 1925 and gained fame touring with figures like Julio De Caro.

Bucino pioneered tango performances at prestigious venues, including Teatro Colón, and across Europe.

His composition skills shone with songs like “Bailarín compadrito.”

After teaching dance to royalty and Hollywood stars, Bucino retired in 1942, profoundly impacting Tango as a performer and composer until his death in 1973.
