MORE INFORMATION ABOUT Andrea De Dominicis & Monica di Petro (Italy)

Lovers of tango embrace and intensity of life combine to create an experience of art and life. Their style is characterized by energy, elegance, harmony and passion that are conveyed through their personal way of dancing, which is full of imagination and musicality. 

Their lessons are conducted in a relaxed and fun way (focusing on the basic assumptions underlying tango as a social dance) with the goal of achieving a good dance level for every student, pulling out from each of them their best qualities. Lessons are aimed at explanation of leading and following technique, the elements of improvisation and interpretation of music, which are meant to convey to their students the fundamentals of connection between man-woman through the embrace and the movement of the body. 

Monica Di Pietro
Discovered her talent for dance very early, and started dancing when she was really young: first, classical dance with the best teacher of the Rome Opera Theater, and then 15 years in Modern and Contemporary dance. Then she discovered her passion and incredible feeling for Argentine tango. She is now the new talent of the Italian tango scene.
