Pablo Linares & Amelia Esparza
Pablo Linares and Amelia Esparza are dancers and Maestros of Argentine Tango with a wide training, both in the Artistic field and in Teaching.
Owners of a style that represents the cultural roots and the very essence of Argentine Tango, these artists have the added value of being able to capture in their dance and classes, not only essence and tradition but also all the evolutions of the movement technique that Argentine Tango has experienced in the last decade.
In short, essence and vanguard in the same couple.
