For the very very first time, Carlitos & Majo will be in Auckland & Sydney only in September/October 2020 giving Workshops, Privates and Jaw-dropping Performances!! This is an amazing treat for the NZ & OZ dancers in 2020!!!
need no further introduction, he’s perhaps the most influential male dancer of this generation and a most requested teacher and performer at various festivals all over the world.
A dynamic young milonguero dancer who has been dancing for the last twenty-one years in Argentina and Chile and has instructed at over 100 festivals and workshops in Europe and South America gaining a fiercely-loyal following worldwide.
One of Carlitos’ first tango teacher was Carlos Malone and Sergio Natario, who taught him the importance of walking.
In 1998 Carlitos began teaching in Argentina and Chile and in 2001, in Europe. Wordquickly spread and since 2004 he has instructed in Europe almost full-time. WhenCarlitos is not touring he resides in Santiago, Chile where he instructs group classesand gives private classes to a seemingly endless stream of advanced students whoarrive daily from around the world to work with him.
As a Dancer, Carlitos dances an authentic close-embrace milonguero style tango. His personal dance style is characterized by a rare combination of extreme dynamism, profound musicality, energy, precision, and a very grounded and elegant walk.
He is passionate about exploring the Tango, choosing his own way of defining his style. For this reason, he is a unique dancer with an outstanding style. The dynamics and the musicality, the music transmission in the movements of the body make his dance a very sensual experience.
As a Teacher, Carlitos is masterful. He works on multiple levels with students, simultaneously developing technique and mechanics while challenging the student’s interior landscape, and their process of conceptualizing while they lead or follow.
