JuNE 30TH, 1ST & 2nd JuLY

Juan Martin Carrara started his dancing career when he was 13 years old as a ballet and contemporary dancer and an actor of musical comedy. At the age of 16 he entered in the Nacional Academy of Dance of Uruguay and was selected for the "Young Ballet", touring all the theatres of the region with the "Young Ballet" from the famous Theatre Colón of Buenos Aires. After a few years he met with tango and at the same time with Stefanía Colina, and fell in love with both.

Stefania Colina started her career as a ballet and contemporary dancer in the "Orlama" School at the age of 4 year-old. She graduated at 17, after 13 years of intense training and became a teacher of the school. During that time she had the opportunity to experience many dance styles that were taught as a complement to ballet, that is how she met with tango and Juan Martin, and from that day started a passionate life-changing story for both of them. Together they left all they had in Uruguay and moved almost immediately to Buenos Aires with nothing more than their intense desire to dance and teach tango.

After a few years of working hard at improving their level and knowledge, they won the "Intercontinental Championship" in 2009. Since then, they have been teaching and dancing around the world. They perform regularly in the milongas of Buenos Aires with prestigious orchestras such as "Color Tango" "Los Reyes del Tango" "Orquestra Sans Souci", "Orquestra Mariano Mores". Their fame and uniqueness comes from their elegance, sensuality and musicality. They are also known for their successful and engaging teaching method.

In the last years they have been in some of the most important festivals from Europe.

This event is organised by the Edinburgh Tango Society.
