Inés Muzzopappa & Federico Naveira

22-23 January 2011

Inés Muzzopappa & Federico Naveira

Federico Naveira started dancing at the tender age of four, and studied many different artistic disciplines as ballet, modern dance, theatre, music, etc., which gave him great knowledge and understanding of the dance. When he has ten he started to "work" as assistant next to his sister Ariadna at the "Tango con niños" classes taught by his mother and teacher herself, Olga Besio, obtaining therefore a very enriching experience as teacher.


At the age of 13 he became part of a group of teachers who taught all kinds of students, and since then he hasn't stopped working as a professional dancer and teacher of Tango Argentino. Between the enormous amount of works made with their sister we can find the Tangomagia festival in Amsterdam, the Congreso Internacional de Tango Argentino (CITA), the Pulpo's Tango Week, the Festival Internacional de Tango Ciudad de La Plata, and festivals organized by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires, in addition to an outstanding work in the school Tango Brujo as teachers and as assistants to their mother's classes, added to a great amount of exhibitions in almost all milongas and several theaters of Buenos Aires.


Ines Muzzopappa began her learning in tango of natural and spontaneous way at the age of 14 in the mythical Sunderland Club de Villa Urquiza. Among other things, Ines studied classic dance, song and music; elements that gave to a very good artistic formation and a deep development in the understanding of the dance.


In 2007 obtained the 1° place at the V. World Championship of Argentine Tango in the category Tango Salon made in Buenos Aires, which allowed her to evolve like educator by starting to work as teacher in different national and international festivals and in the most recognized Tango schools in Argentina. From her beginnings she has danced all over the Buenos Aires milongas, making presentations in almost all of them with different companions. Federico and Ines began to dance together in 2008, in order to fuse their experiences and knowledge in tango and transform them in their own style of dance. In their short career together, they travelled to many different countries in Europe and America, making workshops, participating in festivals like the Pulpo' s Tango Week, CITA 2009, Tango [R] evolution 2009, Planetangos 2 and Austin' s Spring Tango Festival, and making presentations and seminaries in different milongas from Buenos Aires. At the moment they are preparing for their fourth tour together that will take them to Europe, North America and Asia.
