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 European 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, tango which is in fashion in the world.
They are settled in France and they created their company Union Tanguera in Lyon. They work regularly there in and in other European cities. Of course in Buenos Aires too, 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: Tango of hug, careful footstep, of simplicity and musicality."
Claudia and Esteban speak Spanish, French, Italian and English.
