Marcelo Almiron

Dancer with more than 25 years of experience in tango. He dances from the age of 15. He studied intensively contemporary dance, jazz and break dance. He’s been dancing tango since 1991 – when he started his tango education with the authentic milongueros de la Guardia Vieja Rodolfo and Maria Cieri.

He has been dancing tango for more than 20 years now which allows him to see this dance from a much wider perspective than most of the present tango teachers can.
Marcelo is dancing all the tango styles. He presents authentic traditional tango salon but he also dances tango milonguero and the old canyengue style as well as tango show, milonga and tango-vals. In his dance he makes vast use of the modern tendencies and technique of tango nuevo, thus forming his unique and vast background which lets him dance to any kind of tango music representing differents ages and styles.
