Stefania Colina started her career as a ballet and contemporary dancer in the “Orlama” School at the age of 4. 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 and that is how she met with tango and Juan Martin.
Juan Martín Carrara started dancing 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 as a performer of modern and classical ballet. After a few years he met with tango and at the same time with Stefania and from that day, a passionate life-changing story started 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 and the Uruguayan Tango salon Championship in 2012. Since then, Stefania and Juan Martín 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”. In the last years they have been in some of the most important festivals and events in Europe, America, and Asia. Their fame and uniqueness comes from their elegance, sensuality and musicality. They dance with an immense respect for the tradition and the music, and yet keep working on new forms of expression and their own development. They are also known for their successful and engaging teaching method which allows to hear and feel what is most intangible in tango.
