PAOLO Y ELENA TANGO

OUR STORY

We are certified federal tango argentino instructors with the national diploma of technical qualification issued by FIDS/CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee). We completed our professional formation at the academy of excellence Metro Tango with Vanesa Villalba and Facundo Piñero as tecnical directors and Javier Rodriguez as artistic director; patronized by La Academia Nacional del Tango de Buenos Aires, CETBA (Centro Educativo del Tango de Buenos Aires) and AMBCTA (Asociatión de Maestros, Bailarines y Coreógrafos del Tango Argentino).

Our artistic paths are founded on the study of music; therefore, our teaching style is based on the relationship between music and the dynamics of movement. In 2021 we were based in Turin and taught courses, workshops, and private lessons in various cities in Italy. Since 2022 we have been based and working mainly in Bern. 

We are constantly refining our formation. In 2021 we were selected to study and complete the annual closed-training of the Tango Ballet "El Cxuce Tango" under the direction of Vanesa Villalba and Facundo Piñero and were coached for several months in an intensive training program by Gianpiero Galdi and Lorena Tarantino.

The main tango maestros who influenced our formation were Vanesa Villalba and Facundo Piñero, Gianpiero Galdi and Lorena Tarantino, Camille Yannantuono, Anìbal Montenegro, José Fernández, Martina Waldman, Juan Cantone.

In 2019 we co-founded the tango association "Ludico Tango" in Bern, Switzerland. We strived to create a creative and stimulating platform for young tango students and dancers, organizing and offering open and guided practicas and workshops and hosting milongas opened to the public.

PAOLO AND ELENA

Paolo Lombardo

His artistic path initially began focused on music and led him to graduate from the Conservatory of Music Giuseppe Verdi in Turin, obtaining the title of master in composition after a ten-year course of study. From here comes the passion for the analysis of musicality and the dramatic and mysterious atmosphere of argentine tango. This passion is sensitively expressed in his dance style and musical interpretation.
