Facundo de la Cruz & Paola Sanz @ Sunderland
Tango: «Bien Pulenta» by Juan D'Arienzo

Facundo & Paola are talented representatives of a generation of young dancers who are dedicated to the art and tradition of tango salon. Hailing from the provinces of Cordoba and Chubut, they have honed their dance for more than 11 years, 7 of which have been together. Their constant exploration of the essence of tango salon, elegance, connection and musicality has allowed them to evolve their dance in a unique yet traditional way.

After gaining various titles in recognition of their talent in a few competitions in Argentina, they moved to Buenos Aires last year to take part in the thriving environment of the tango capital. They have been met with welcome, giving classes (El Beso, and La Nacional) and exhibitions in various milongas (La Viruta, Gricel, Villa Malcolm, Porteno y Bailarin, La Nacional, La Milonga del Patio, and El Viejo Correo, Sunderland).

In July 2011, Facundo & Paola were selected as winners in Tango Salon and Milonga by a unanimous vote by the judges Osvaldo and Coca, Roberto Herrera and Lorena Goldestein, Jorge Garcia and Susanna Soar, and Gabriel Glagovsky and Rui Saito in the Festival Nacional de Tango Salon.

In May 2012 they were awarded 1st prize in the Vals category in the annual Metropolitano championship, in which all of young and upcoming Buenos Aires talent compete in various milongas in Buenos Aires. They also placed 3rd and 4th in Milonga and Tango, ending up as the only couple to place in all three categories.

Later the same year, in August 2012, Facundo and Paola were awarded the title of World Champions of Tango Salon at the 10th World Tango Championship, judged by Maria Nieves, Olga Besio, Aurora Lubiz, Julio Balmaceda, Julio Duplaa & Javier Rodriguez.

As a consequence of the recognition they achieved, Facundo & Paola decided to bring their talent abroad.

Join them as Facundo prepares to share his crisp enrosques and sharp syncopations, and Paola her delicate and elegant footwork.

Workshops & Seminar

Facundo & Paola gave two workshops on Friday, a vals workshop on Saturday and a Seminar on Sunday:

• SATURDAY: Tango workshops

• SATURDAY: Vals Workshop

• SUNDAY: Tango Salon Seminar: «Interpreting the music»

It is worth mentioning, regarding all the different topics, that in addition to the study and understanding of the behaviour and movement of the body, Facundo and Paola's aim is set at conveying the notion of Tango as a social, cultural and popular expression, beyond the dance itself.
