Weekend Tango Workshops

Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno

28 February-1 March 2009

We are pleased to announce a new visit to Edinburgh by this world-class tango couple. Workshops and performance.

Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno

Dancers of a great presence, appreciated teachers and choreographers, this couple do homage to the past while they look towards the future. For some years they have been a reference for the new generation of dancers and teachers of tango. Their present style, sobriety and elegance as well as their solid and effective pedagogy, place them among the best. Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno met at the begining of 1990. They have studied in Buenos Aires with the best teachers and they are part of a generation of dancers that together with some "milongueros" have accompanied the revival of the Argentine Tango in Buenos Aires, and in the world. They settled in France since 1999 where they created their company Union Tanguera in Lyon. They work regularly there and in other European cities, Asia, USA as well as in Buenos Aires, teaching and dancing in different shows and festivals. In their way of dancing and teaching it can be seen the courage to affirm a style in which it joins together the aspects of nowadays' tango (unusual changes of directions, searh of other dynamics and the use of other axes and movements) without renouncing its strong heritage of Popular tango: embrace, careful footstep, simplicity and musicality.
