First Istanbul Milonga Workshop Of 2006 Starts With The Gala Show By Julio Balmaceda & Corina De La Rosa

The first Milonga workshop of 2006 which will be as of May 1st, 2006 to May 3rd, 2006, starts at the Armada Hotel tonight with the Gala Show by Julio & Corina. The program will begin as of 22:30 hrs. at the Ahırkapı Restaurant's dance-floor where the rest of the Workshop and classes will be held...

They are the internationally well known Master Teachers and Dancers. Julio is the son of the legendary Miguel Balmaceda. Together they transmit precision and beauty on all of their movements. They took part in the Forever Tango show touring the U.S.A and Europe. At present, they are the solo couple of Color Tango Orchestra(*).

Julio and Corina have a special blend of Traditional and New Tango styles, which makes their dancing unique and very rich in emotion. Classes with them are recommended to all dancers, from beginners to advance, taking up on New Tango elements with a twist of traditional flavor.

The couple gained popularity and are very much appreciated by their pupils because of the individual attention they give during their classes, which they have very successfully been teaching for several years in Buenos Aires in Nino Bien or in the Galeria del Tango. As frequently invited guest-teachers and celebrated showdancers they express at the tango-festivals in the USA, in Europe and Japan their own sentimental interpretation of the dance, always with respectful attention for musicality and rythm. The Tango Vals and the Tango Salon are considered their speciality. Even if you never saw them before, you will recognise a fine quality of elegance in their scenes in the shows for sure.
