Dance_poseIXI Danza is proud to present the return of Argentine Tango maestros Andrés Laza Moreno with his partner Luciana Arregui, who will be in Singapore this August (1 August – 12 August 2014) as part of their upcoming Asian tour, which will include the following cities: Seoul, Hong Kong, Beijing and Taipei.

Andrés began dancing when he was 14 years old. He soon joined the Ballet Zaraza Tango with which he gave his first exhibitions in some of the most important milongas in Buenos Aires. In 2004, Andres entered the very competitive “Academia de Estilos de Tango Argentino” (ACETA) also known as “Ballet Escuela” a project where the more famous maestros transmit their knowledge and experience to the new generation of dancers. In the same year he had the opportunity work with the master Carlos Gavito as assistant on his classes. In October 2006, Andrés becomes Samantha Dispari’s dance partner and kick-started his career as a Tango professional. During this period, Andrés learnt, developed and adopted the “Villa Urquiza” style with Jorge Dispari and María del Carmen.

We first met Andrés during the Sydney Tango Salon Festival in 2010 where he was one of the featured maestros. We were impressed by his passion and generosity in imparting his knowledge, and his down-to-earth approach to teaching tango. This was also evident from extremely positive response from the workshop participants after his previous visits in 2011 and 2013. The program for this trip will have a stronger focus on musicality and milonga, as well as more challenging materials.

We look forward to your support for the events!

Update (27 July): The early bird rate has been extended to 30 July.
