Of Mediterranean background, Sandra Naccache speaks, reads and writes four languages (English, French, Spanish and Arabic) and is currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. With a degree in graphic design, creativity has always been her forte.
Coming from a diverse dance background (ballroom and bellydance), she is an award-winning choreographer and founder of the “Academie de Danse Sandra Naccache.” Tango came into her life at a time when she was seeking something deeper in her dance. In 2007 she decided to dedicate herself full time to the art of Tango.
Sandra has studied with Carlos and Rosa Pérez, Gabriel Angio y Natalia Games, Nathalia Hills , Daniel and Cristina Nacucchio, Gustavo Naveira, Ruben and Sabrina Veliz, Martin Ojeda, Silvio Lavia, Leila Rezk & Leandro Oliver. They have been the most influential teachers who have given her the proper tools to investigate the tango and grow as an artist. Sandra has travelled the world and is a sought out professional, teaching and performing in famous festivals and milongas such as Salon Canning, Porteño y Bailarín and La Baldosa among others. She is regularly invited by numerous agencies to teach and perform on some of the most renowned cruise ships (including Princess, Cunard, Norwegian Breakaway, Oceanía Sirena). Sandra has worked in television and movies including the Warner Brothers movie “Upside Down,” “L’Univers en Direct” and the Asian reality TV show filmed in Buenos Aires “Sisters Over Flowers." She toured Switzerland with one of Argentina’s most successful and famous orchestra,s Color Tango. She recently took part in the "Encuentro 100% Tanguero" show in Tucuman, Argentina and danced in the short film "24M" under the direction of Hugo Mastrolorenzo, filmed In Buenos Aires. Sandra performed in Lyon, France’s Hotel de Ville as guest dancer in honour of "Handi-Tango." She has had the honour of participating in the “World Accordion Festival” in Victoria, British Columbia. These are a few of Sandra’s highlights as she consistently travels internationally promoting Argentine Tango culture. Her trajectory has been written about in several famous international magazines such as “Dance International."
From October 2006 to April 2017 Sandra worked in partnership with Alexander Richardson. Together they taught and performed around the world. Sandra began to collaborate with Jorge López in various works, building the foundation for their new partnership. They currently dance together full time. Today they stand out as one of the most sought-out couples for their charismatic performances and dynamic teaching approach.
Many people ask Sandra why she loves tango and her answer would be that it is probably the only dance that cannot be truly felt and transmitted unless it is 100% authentic. That is why she has chosen it and it has chosen her.
Sandra and Jorge divide their time between Montreal, Buenos Aires and travelling the world. Since 2017, they have worked regularly with MonTango, teaching workshops and performing at various events, during their time in Montreal. MonTango appreciates the quality and professionalism of Sandra and Jorge's teaching and is extremely pleased to count Sandra as part of Tanguerafest this year.
