Facundo De La Cruz and Paola Sanz | 2012 Salon World Champions | in Houston April 3 to 8

facundo and paola

Facundo and Paola are talented representatives of a young generation of dancers who are dedicated to the art and tradition of tango salon. The provinces of Cordoba and Chubut were their dance home for 10 years, 6 of whom have danced together. Independent exploration of the essence of tango salon, elegance, connection and musicality has allowed them to create a product that is unique and traditional. After winning several titles in recognition of their talent in some competitions in Argentina, Facundo and Paola moved to Buenos Aires in 2011 to be an active element of the tango capitol that has the greatest influence on the world. In 2012 they scored the dream goal of every salon tango dancer and won the Championship of the year . Now they inspire tango communities around the world with the elegance and passion of the traditional tango. Let us celebrate masterful and harmonious dance of Facundo and Paola in Houston!
