About Nick Jones and Diana Cruz
Nick Jones approaches dancing with great abandon and seriousness. Mixing formal Argentine Tango styles to create creative, musical dance that pushes the limits of the genera. As an enthusiastic teacher, choreographer, performer, dj and musician he is invited to tango festivals and workshops around the world. He has studied tango since 1998 and to this day continues to take classes with whomever catches his eye.
Diana Cruz is a dancer who has dedicated her life to understanding body movement and performing. She pulls together all of her multi-diciplinary techniques (including: Ballet, Contemporary, Modern and Latin American folk dances, Pilates, Yoga, singing and many tango styles) into one cohesive dance. She uses these techniques as a base to create powerful, musical unique performances. She has been invited as a dancer in the tango show The Tango Zone, also for performances in Salons in Buenos Aires, workshops around the US and Australia, and many festivals including the Montreal Nuevo Tango Festival.
Daniela LuisDaniela Pucci & Luis Bianchi
Daniela and Luis met during her first trip to Buenos Aires. What was supposed to be Luis's last tanda for the night turned into two hours of dancing together. The magical connection they experienced that night led them to share their tango paths. Daniela left her career as an MIT engineering professor to join Luis as his tango partner. Luis left Buenos Aires to join her in New York City, where they currently reside.
In New York City, they are co-founders of "The Tango Zone Dance Company", which produces shows combining tango, theater, video and comedy.
Eli's music is like a cross between Mozart and Michael Jackson - "Traditional and Classic, and you dance your head off really well!". Eli has DJed at milongas, practicas and festivals across the US, in cities such as New York, Chicago, Seattle, Saint Louis, Kansas City, and Princeton.
