GISELLE   Has demonstrated her abilities as a dancer and choreographer by performing in shows such as "Tango Argentino", "Tango Pasión", and with Orchestras such "Jose Libertella", "Osvaldo Berlingeri" "Mariano Mores", and "Los Solistas de D'Arienzo". She has performed in America, Europe and Japan, and during the five years of her residence in Spain (1992-1997) she worked intensely with the tango, creating her own ballet, founding a school and inaugurating the “Casa del Tango” (Tango House) in Seville. Now with 30 years of experience, the presence and solidity of her dance are balanced perfectly with the beauty of her movements, and this ensures that her dancing is always at the highest level.

GUSTAVO   Dancer and internationally ranking choreographer, he is also the pioneer of a new technique of teaching  the tango, now famous worldwide. After already 35 years of experience and touring all over the world, he imparts his knowledge with conceptual clarity and a rich technique. Being an exceptional analyst and investigator, his abilities have revolutionized tango dancing since the end of the 20th century.  Those who best know the world of tango dancing also appreciate his knowledge of tango dancing history and styles which he knows how to materialize through the creativity of his improvisations. The critics in Buenos Aires said: "…You could say that three stylistic tendencies contend for supremacy: Urquiza's style,  Almagro's style and  Naveira's style …" (Clarín 8/8/99, Buenos Aires Argentina).

THE COUPLE   They met in 1995 and found a great harmony when their incredible abilities found each other. Together, Gustavo and Giselle have successfully performed in the most important tango festivals around the world (Asia, America & Europe). They have also performed and given classes in the most famous milongas and theaters in Buenos Aires and abroad. Since 2003, they have continuously offered their renowned “tango seminars” a teaching method that they have created to help tango dancers improve their dance.

They continue traveling to teach and perform all over the world, but now live in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Since 2010 they have organized the annual Boulder Tango Festival, which usually takes place in October.                         www.gustavoygiselle.org
