~ Lena Kanellou ~
  • Heraklion, Crete, Greece
  • Lena Kanellou was initially drawn to tango because of the dance, but soon, fell profoundly in love with the soulful music and poignant lyrics. In her tango journey, she was fortunate to fulfil her long-held dream of creating the musical mood of the dancefloor herself, as she started playing music in milongas of her hometown Heraklion.
    She finds Golden Era music to be very conducive to a beautiful dancefloor experience and she loves coming up with tandas that, apart from a musical, also follow a conceptual theme in their poetry. Over the course of an evening, she goes for a balanced mix of lyricism and rhythmicality and she enjoys adapting attentively to the reaction of the dancers and having the feeling of dancing with everyone on the floor.
~ Tonia Papadaki ~
  • Chania, Crete, Greece
  • Tonia Papadaki is a doctor and lives in Chánia but her heart belongs to tango. She started dancing on 2007 but she wanted more... So on 2010 she started TJing and learning more and more about tango music. Since then she has been invited to play in many milongas and festivals in Crete and in Athens too.
~ George Spiridakis ~
  • Rethymno, Crete, Greece
  • George’s interest in music, sound and D.J.ing goes back to a very young age. For many years he has been Dj at Tangoneon Heraklion in Crete (since 2004). He started dancing Tango in 2003. So he counts with many years of experience on the dancing floors and decks. It is impossible for him to separate his two big loves but he believes that in order to be a good Tango dancer you have to first love Tango music. His favorite music period is the Golden Age. Nevertheless he also finds the new tango orchestras interesting since they bring a fresh look to the music tradition of Tango.
    For the past few years he has been living in Rethymno Crete where he is co-organizer of a weekly milonga every Friday and resident DJ. He also interested in Tango photography and travels abroad every year to make new tango friends at festivals

~ Gustavo ~
  • Gustavo Javier Gomez (Munich, Germany)
  • I was born in the city of Puerto Rico in the province of Misiones, Argentina in 1979, and since I was a child, my only dream was to be a dancer. In 1993 Tango came into my life and is still one of the most important things of my life. I love Tango, I live Tango, I am fascinated of its music, the conection between two persons, the conection of their souls. A lot of teachers influenced my Tango, like Aoniken Quiroga, Alejandra Mantiñan, Johanna Copes, Jonathan Saavedra, Clarisa Aragon, Adrian Veredice and a lot more. I think that everybody has its own Tango and my work is to help every student to discover this Tango. My focus is on musicality, „El abrazo“, comunication, conection, technique and discover the conection between your soul and the soul of Tango.
    I worked in the last years a lot in Germany where I live and have my school, but also in Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Argentina. I am looking forward to discover a new country with Greece. See you there!!

    In well-known theaters of the city (Buenos internationals) I danced with the orchestras Sexteto Mayor, El Arranque, Color Tango and others. both in known milongas in which I also taught, Gricel, c.c. Torcato Tasso; La Ideal, La Nacional, Salon Caning .. At the age of six, I started with a long-time ballet education followed by flamenco, modern and contemporary dance.
    International I taught, danced and DJ in Luxenburg Sweden, Norway, Finland, Japan, Prague, Italy, Greece and Germany where I actually teach and live.
    My work is based on exploring the body, allowing the capacity of natural energy to flow and move.
    Tango as a synonym of expression with its advanced techniques shaped my education. The emergence of creativity as well as learn, dance, hear, feel and enjoy. Also I want to dance, especially at Tango Argentino, respect each other and still let the leadership and be led, the dancers mediate. The leader makes an offer to the guided person, but does not enforce it. It should be a dance together.

I have been living in Crete for about 13 years, teaching in social clubs and in my own studio. The tango became my dance, because it allows me free dancing without moving in strict predetermined, standardized ways. A wise man once told me, it's important to dance, whether it's tango music or not. All you need to do is dancing!! I ended up for the tango
