An exciting weekend with the best of Argentine Tango in the world!

The orchestra La Juan D'arienzo -

does not need a special introduction - we all know them by now.

The memory of them playing in Chicago still feels fresh, although it has been almost a year since they 

played for tango dancers in our city in March 2019. The experience was overwhelming!

They are coming back to play two full sets at the Los Besos Milonguita during the Live Art Tango Fair 2020!

This time two famous Arghentine Tango couples will participate in this event, along with the young highly talented dancer Valentin Juarez and a couple you know from Chicago - Ellen and Oleg Mashkovich.

 Orquesta Tipica La Juan D'arienzo 

Daniel Juarez, Alejandra Armenti – 

Renowned for their unique combination of classical technique of movement with strong following the traditional Argentine Tango accented by the unparalleled taste in musicality and expressiveness. Often they are called the masters of precision for their impeccable style of walking and clean turns. They learned Tango since childhood, took the essence of this dance and culture from old milonguero maestros like Ester and Mingo Pugliese, solidified this knowledge with the formal education in dancing and perfected their elegant style at local milongas in Buenos Aires as well as on stage.

Shows produced entirely by Daniel and Alejandra won hearts of Tango lovers in Argentina and in many countries around the world. This lovely couple is often invited to represent Argentine culture at official events organized by the Argentine government, to judge the World Championship in Buenos Aires and many other events.

 Daniel Juarez and Alejandra Armenti 

Guillermo Salvat -

 A professional Tango performer since 1999, Guillermo Salvat joined the cast of the show Una Noche de Tango in Buenos Aires in 2001. Since then he has performed and taught in over 30 countries in the five continents. He has been part of prestigious companies such as Tangox2 and Solo Tango, and has participated as guest star in shows like Tango & Fire, Piazzolla Puro, Soñando Tangos (Italy), and as choreographer in Estampas Porteñas (Australia and New Zealand), Magia de Tango (Colombia) and Masters of Tango (USA). He has performed in the Sydney Opera House, the Kremlin Theatre in Moscow, the Teatro Brancaccio in Rome, the Canecaô in Rio de Janeiro and the Luna Park in Buenos Aires, as well as at the most prestigious tango show in Buenos Aires, Esquina Carlos Gardel and Rojo Tango. He represented Argentina at the World Expos in 2000 Hanover, 2005 Aichi and 2010 Shanghai. 

In 2006 he founded his own company and released the show Tango-A-Tierra. This has been presented so far in Buenos Aires, South Africa, Hong Kong, Russia, Ukraine, Chile and Brazil, and in 40 cities in four continents, with extraordinary success. 

Miriam Lea - 

Miriam has many years of performing professionally with masters in Folklore and Argentine Tango in Buenos Aires and abroad. Having begun dance training at the tender age of four, her talents were quickly recognized, and after time took her into the National Tours in Argentina, presentations for government organizations, universities, venues in the United States and Argentina, as well as sharing the stages with the renowned stars of Tango and the arts.

Miriam has had the pleasure being principle dancers in several companies. Her performances reflect the soul of the Argentine countryside while Tango style ignites the stage with the passion and intensity of Buenos Aires. She has lots of passion for dancing, incorporating new ideas into traditional dancing.  While working with many other working dancers, Miriam is inspired to find new methods in teaching others and continue to push boundaries in Tango as expression and preserving its traditions and culture for future generations.

Lena and Oleg Mashkovich - 

Discovered the dance of traditional Argentine Tango 20 years ago, and since year 2000 constantly continue educating themselves in its history, culture and technique, over the years developing and perfecting their own style taking in the training and information that many Tango maestros they took classes with could offer.

Lena and Oleg teach in Chicago and at events around USA since year 2004, inspiring a new generation of Argentine Tango dancers, helping students improve their confidence through understanding better the movement within the dance, the control of their own bodies, connection between partners and to the music. 

With their deep knowledge of the history, culture and great experience in Tango dancing Lena and Oleg offer a great deal of advice to dancers of different levels.
