Workshops & Exhibition
Augusto Cevilan y Alexis Alvarado
Hello! We are Augusto and Alexis, two Tango dancers from Santiago del Estero, central north of Argentina. Life has fortunately united us through movement. We have been together for 7 years and our specialty is to reconnect and reinvent ourselves at all times. It would be difficult to describe ourselves in a word, we could talk about Dance and say that we like to feel free and develop a movement that mainly gives us joy and pleasure, we could talk about Tango and say that we love to connect and find ourselves in a flexible and playful embrace. We are like clowns, we joke and laugh, and this is how we discover our movements. "Joking" and "Playing", as we say in our environment. We believe that the more innocent we are, the better we can discover and create. Meditation is an essential part of this process, it is something that is always present in our lessons, it gives us back and takes us to the creative center to celebrate us. We love what we do and we do it with the belief that art and love can change the world. Do you join us in this experience?
