Madalyn & Nelson

Nelson Avila is the legendary Master of Argentine Tango. He starred three times on Broadway:

Tango Argentino – 1985 and 2000

Forever Tango – 2004

He has produced, choreographed  and starred in his own world class shows. Nelson is renowned for his artistic contributions to the tango.  Nelson has the artistic integrity, rhythmic precision, strength, carriage, elegance, musicality and originality to that put him at the pinnacle of his profession.   Wherever he goes in the world of tango today, Nelson Avila is revered by amateurs and professional dancers alike as a true legend in his own time.

Madalyn Avila is a passionate ballroom dancer, performer, teacher and a lifelong student of Argentine Tango. She fell in love with the beauty, elegance and creativity of this wonderful dance when Tango Argentino came to New York in 1985. She believes that while Argentine Tango is a wonderful performing art it is a most highly evolved social dance to learn and love.

Madalyn and Nelson live in New York where they have a wonderful following of both amateur and professional students.   Many have enjoyed their classes and performances at some of the best milongas in the greater New York area, as well as in Toronto, Montreal and Argentina.  Nelson was the honorary Judge at the NY Tango Festival Competitions and at the 2018 International Tango Competition in Montreal in summer 2018.   They organize special tango events for museums,  charities, schools  and private parties. They are available to travel for performances, workshops and tango seminars.

Together they love to share their passion for all that is Tango.  Nelson is the maestro and the authentic soul of this art form, Madalyn is a passionate dancer, performer and teacher. Together they bring a wonderful combination of passion, soul and knowledge. For more  information aboutt them, please visit: http://www.NelsonAvilaTango.com
