Eva y Pablo return to Houston October 6-7 2018

EvaPabloEva and Pablo are among the leading young couples specializing in Tango Milonguero in the world. They are based in Albuquerque, NM and Buenos Aires, Argentina. They have taught and participated at the Albuquerque Tango Festival since 2014. They previously have taught in the Mini Chicago Tango Festival 2013, Burning Tango Festival 2013, New Zealand Tango Festival 2009, Festival of Ferrara 2011-2013, USA, Oceania, Asia and European tours. They combine an extraordinary ability to explain the basic mechanics of danceable tango and from there to build a very personal dance. In their classes, they increase the confidence of their students by giving them the tools they need at all times.
Eva Garlez is one of the younger exponents of Tango Milonguero. She also studied in the Academy of Susana Miller and Maria Plazaola, where she began her teaching career as both follower and leader, often the partner of both Susana and Maria, developing considerable knowledge and understanding of both roles. Eva’s love of dancing transmits as she teaches and performs. She has become one of the outstanding milongueras having not only taught and performed with great milongueros in seminars given by Susana Miller and Maria Plazaola in Buenos Aires but also in the milongas. She taught in “Milongueando in Buenos Aires” festival organized by Susana Miller and Maria Plazaola in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Pablo Rodriguez started dancing 11 years ago, at La Academia de Susana Miller y Maria Plazaola, soon began to participate as an instructor in regular classes at the Academy showing great talent for dancing and teaching. Participated as a student in many seminars taught by many milongueros such as: Tete Rusconi, Pocho, Osvaldo and Coca, Ruben Harymbat, Pedro Sánchez etc. Alberto Dassieu was one of his most influencing teachers and a really close friend until his passing 2 years ago.
