Tango Class with Natalia & Agustin

Holy Trinity Church, Parkway, Sketty, SA28JQ.

Amongst the new generation of Argentine couples, Natalia and Agustin are a couple whose popularity has grown rapidly in recent years. In less than three years, they have participated in more than 87 tango events in ten countries from America to Europe. Even during their first year European tour, they were called to dance at a Dutch Royalty Award, the "Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Prijs 2016", in the presence of Queen Maxima of The Netherlands.

They began their international journey in 2016, after 13 years of local experience and 10 years of intense researches about tango, its history, its dance, culture, testimony and chats with milongueros. They have also specialized in body language and dance teaching techniques and done studies in the Tango university career at the Art University of Buenos Aires.

Abroad, they have quickly achieved great recognition and popularity thanks to their unique and innovative classes where they mix culture, art, history, musicality, dance and technique. They are skilled in transmitting highly tango rooted knowledge, without even using figures or sequences.
