Csongor has been a dancer from the age of 4 years old, when he began with ballroom dancing. In 2010, Argentine Tango entered to his life. He fell in love with it and decided to dedicate his life and dancing career to it. Csongor has taught tango since 2011, working in France, Hungary, Bulgaria, the Republic of Moldova, Turkey, Russia, Romania, Italy and now in the UK. He has been a Tango DJ since 2013. In 2015, together with Laura Iaru, he won the “6th European Tango Salon Championship, July 2015 – Todi, Italy” – which at only 19 years old made him Europe’s youngest ever champion. In the same year he was a finalist at the World Championship in Buenos Aires.
Laísa trained as a professional dancer from 2003, working with Brazilian Social Dances in Brazil. In 2008, deciding to specialize in Argentine Tango, she moved to Buenos Aires where she earned a degree in the National University of Arts, (UNA) for Folklore with special mention in Tango and where she performed in the show “Si no te amase” directed by Junior Cervila ; in “Voz Tango” of Verónica Salmeron, for “Salsamba” with which she relocated to Macao for 6 months; in “The Piazzolla Tango Show” also in Buenos Aires and in the show “Latidos” by Leticia Fallacara. She has worked as a performer and Tango Instructor for the MSC Orquestra. In 2013, she was a finalist in the Metropolitan Tango Championship in Buenos Aires in 3 categories: milongueros del Mundo; Vals; and Milonga. And in 2017 she and her dance partner Ariel Manzanares, won the 11th place in the Mundial Championship in Buenos Aires. While pursuing her performing career for almost nine years, she has been teaching and performing tango in Europe (England, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Italy and Switzerland) Asia (China and India) Africa (South Africa and Mozambique) and South America (Argentina, Brazil and Colombia).
Argentinian “DJ de Tango”, Diego is one of the three sets of brains behind 3D Tango and is well-known not only in London, but around the world, making an appearance this year at the Brussels Tango Festival. As ever, he will bring us his intelligent, imaginative, responsive, but above all danceable choices of music during a milonga. Diego is a connoisseur of tango music and uses his exquisite taste to bring joy to the dance floor. We are fortunate to have him play for us!
