Teachers & DJs

Jenny & Ricardo Oria

We're absolutely thrilled that Jenny & Ricardo will be teaching this weekend. This fabulous couple are regulars at our Hemsby Weekends and never disappoint. 

This is what they have to say about Tango:They love tango - its music, its song, and its dance, particularly it's dance. It's wonderful, social, creative, intimate, playful, serious dance.

We love the moment of surrender in the arms of your partner, the feeling of losing yourself and yet finding yourself at one with the music, at one with your partner, at one with yourself. We are proud to be part of the tango community: a rich culture steeped in history, which is still of relevance today.

We continually develop our dance, practicing and also still taking classes, and we have been really fortunate over the years to have been able to learn from some really wonderful maestros**.

We teach and dance tango salon .. tango for the dance floor. Each tango we dance is moved and inspired by the music and the subtle yet powerful conversation within the embrace.

 

Andres Tanguito Cejas & Genoveva Fernandez

Andrés and Genoveva have been dancing together for over 15 years and are well known world-wide. They performed at London's Royal Festival Hall and regularly tour Europe, participating in festivals and special events.

With an extensive artistic trajectory, they are dedicated to teaching and divulging the music and dance of the Río de la Plata, and are sharing the path of life from the hand of Tango.

Diego Doigneau

Born in Argentina, studied Music and Theatre both in Buenos Aires and London.

For the last 9 years he‘s been the resident dj at Negracha Tango Club, London’s biggest milonga while also djing in all London and many UK Milongas.

He has also been djing in major worldwide festivals and milongas including River Tango in London, Mediterranean Summer Tango Festival in Porec, Brussels Tango Festival, CircuiTo milonguero in Turin, Festivalito in Edinburgh, Maldito Tango in Sweden, Otoño en Palermo tango Festival, Practica X and Viva la Pepa in Buenos Aires and many more.

His work at milongas is mainly to create the journey the dancers will take that night through the music, for this he selects the songs varying constantly the atmosphere of the night.

The core of the night will be based on golden era orchestras, but it depending on the night, modern orchestras will be added to the mix. He loves music in general, he loves the night and he loves to keep people dancing till even after the milonga is over.
