They met in 2003 in the occasion of a class Gustavo was teaching at a small dance Studio in Palermo. Shortly after she became his assistant teacher at Salón Canning, there they started enjoying the pleasure of dancing together and sharing experiences they wouldn’t ever forget.

They learned how to know each other as dancers, teachers and human beings. Little by little, they discovered the love.

Today, they enjoy working together, they share their experiences and concepts, teach, and most important, they learn together from what they live, from their dances and from their students. They’ve been teaching regular classes at Salón Canning for four years and they tour the world participating in Festivals and International Tango events.

In their classes, good spirit, kindness and warmth are the highlights. This way, they lead their students throughout a pleasant learning process. Gustavo brings wisdom and thoughtfulness as he projects serenity and patience. María injects energy, liveliness, passion and dynamism. This way, they are the Yin and the Yang of an active and enjoyable teaching method.

When they dance, they show their love for each other, the happiness of sharing the warmth of a cozy embrace and the fantasy of a movie where the audience is nothing but an active member of the story.
