Montango is proud to receive these two high-calibre dancers this fall. Sandra and Jorge perform and teach around the world in milongas, festivals and special events. They have worked in several dance companies and have appeared in movies and on TV as guest teachers and choreographers. Sandra and Jorge are known in Montreal for the quality of their dancing and teaching. The couple, charismatic, unique and efficient, have a wealth of knowledge and experience and take great joy and pride in sharing their passion.

Sandra and Jorge describe their teaching method as follows:
"Our mission is delivering to our students the authentic essence of tango. A complete dancer must develop strong body mechanics and awareness, coordination, technique and core strength in order to feel free to move and find harmony in the couple. With technique comes artistry and from a comprehensive understanding of movement, students can create. To help achieve that, we offer organized structured lesson plans, detailed analysis and breakdown of each pattern and movement, which allows our students to feel instant results, from beginners to advanced."

Juliana Maggioli

From Brazil, Juliana considers Buenos Aires her second home after having studied tango there for 10 years, with both contemporary and old-school "maestros." She has participated in many festivals in Argentina and Brazil in recent years, and she recently toured Europe and Asia, working with such partners as Maximiliano Cristiani and Pablo Rodriguez. Two years ago, Juliana worked with Enrique de Fazio, one of the Hermanos Macana, at the IXth Congreso de Cultura Latina in Brazil. Known for her ornaments and a specialist in women's technique workshops, Juliana has recently delved into show tango, though she still believes the milonga is where the real tango lives. Juliana is organizer of the Mucho Tango Milonga in São Paulo, Brazil.

Juliana was our guest dancer at Tanguerafest 2016 and 2017.
