Veronica and Omar fell under the spell of tango 13 years ago and have been part of the milonga ever since. They performed in numerous tango shows and have danced in all the most prestigious dancefloors in Argentina and worldwide. They have been teaching and performing at festivals in Russia; Latvia; Spain; Germany; Italy; Brasil; Venezuela; France; Uruguay; China and Lebanon. Recently they played the starring roles in the film TANGUERO, an italo-argentine production opening this coming April in Italy. 
Their unique style combines the salon heritage with a modern touch of tango fantasia, where graceful elegance and sensuality are serving a respectful interpretation of the individual fashions which differentiate tango orchestras.
When teaching, they aim to convey the importance of communication within the couple, where the essential is not visual, but an intimate sensation inherited from the old milongueros.
Veronica and Omar will show you how to achieve a perfect complicity between the dancing partners, allowing the follower to express his feelings in pair with the leader. But they will also show you how to have fun respecting the distinctive style of each different orchestras

Xavier Vanier has an extensive background in music and martial arts that spans nearly two decades. 
This experience has granted him a facility both in his understanding of the music as well as in his movements. He began his tango studies with the widely respected Marika Landry, where his ease with the dance became immediately apparent. Within a few short years of study, he began teaching at Tango Fabrika in Montreal and was already becoming well known throughout North America.

Xavier continues to be passionate about teaching, dancing, and learning. Having recently spent several months in Buenos Aires studying with Gaston and Moira, he is more inspired than ever and is in increasingly high demand at events around the country.
