Marcos Pereira & Florencia Borgnia

Finalists World Championship of Tango , Buenos Aires, 2017 and 2018.
Florencia and Marcos formed a partnership in 2013, after more than a 15 years of individual development and exploration of tango. They studied with the grand masters of argentine tango, achieving a uniquely elegant, refined style of dance, combining elements of traditional tango, with its roots in tango salón, with techniques incorporated through the study of tango escénico, while maintaining the fundamental essence of tango, an intimate connection with the partner through the embrace.
As teachers, they are characterized by their methodical and punctilious technical elements in order to be comfortable, elegant and in constant connection with the partner, always pointing at the importance of both roles in the couple.
Since 2014 Florencia and Marcos have taught at the prestigious Escuela Argentina de Tango in Buenos Aires, throughout Argentina and around the world. They were members of the Corporación Tangos Alumnos, and they also were regulars in shows at the historic Café Tortoni in Buenos Aires. In 2015 they were invited to join the Espacio Nacional de Tango Argentino, an educational institution that aims to preserve the knowledge and experience of tango as a cultural art form, directed by Silvana Grill. That same year they won second place in the Campeonato de Tango de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, a milestone achievement in their dance career.
They continue to explore and refine their understanding of dance, seeking to achieve the most accurate transmission of the roots of tango.

Edmond was exposed to a large variety of music from both visiting and local DJs in Ann Arbor. DJing regularly at different events in Ann Arbor has allowed him to develop a rich style full of rhythmical presence and lyrical complexity. Throughout the night, Edmond manages the flow of energy to enhance the dancers' connection by being versatile and attentive. He keeps the crowd energized with playful cortinas and by strategically infusing subtle contrast in his music.
Chris is a Pittsburgh native who has always loved rhythmically-complex music like jazz and classical. His friends introduced him to Argentine tango in 2011, but it was only a curiosity at first. He spent significant time with the swing and blues idiom dances, but would stop in at a milonga here and there. Tango's sophistication, playfulness, and range of expression kept him fascinated. Chris kept learning through volunteer classes of the Panther Tango Club at his alma mater. Since 2017, he's been studying tango exclusively, with local instructors, Chewy and Yulia. Chris enjoys DJing both traditional and alternative music, borrowing from his appreciation of a wide range of musical styles. An experimenter at heart, he likes to constantly explore new possibilities of mechanics and interpretation.
