Fabian Salas and Carolina del Rivero

Tireless researcher and maestro, remarkable dancer and connoisseur of the secrets of tango - Fabián Salas has brought light to old beliefs and opened new ways in the conception of the dance, creating an unmistakable style of dancing the Tango. He is the vertebral column of Cosmotango®. He is acclaimed as a teacher and performer by tango lovers around the world. Fabián was a member of the original cast (1994-1995) of the award-winning (Best Musical) argentine tango show "Gotán", and also performed in the stage show "El Patio de la Morocha" (1993-1994) at the "Teatro Municipal General San Martin" in Buenos Aires. In 1997 he became one of the three principal dancers in the award-winning movie - "The Tango Lesson". Fabián Salas is the principal organizer of the Congreso Internacional de Tango Argentino (C.I.T.A.) - the world's most important annual event, which brings together in Buenos Aires all the tango lovers, practitioners, and the most representative artists of Argentine Tango.
Carolina del Rivero started dancing at the age of 6, and throughout her career she has practiced different dancing techniques. She studied at the world-famous Teatro Colon (the most renowned opera house in Latin America) and later on at the famous “Taller de Danza Contemporanea del Teatro San Martin”. She discovered the tango in 1995, and since the year 2000 Carolina dances with Fabián Salas, giving workshops and exhibitions throughout the world. She took part as a master teacher and dancer in the “Congreso Internacional de Tango Argentino” (C.I.T.A. 2001, 2002, and 2003) - the world largest annual tango event that takes place in Buenos Aires every March. Applying all her artistic knowledge from other dances, she brings to tango, style and elegance, as well as a profound understanding of the technique and dynamics of the dance, and also of the woman’s role in it.
