Tango Argentine Stars Set Manila on Fire!

Expect a lot of fireworks as 10 tango stars from Buenos Aires are set to regale the country’s burgeoning tango community in this year's  Manila leg of Tangoblitz 2013, the 5th ManilaTango Festival & Championship. 

The brainchild of Asia’s tango impresario, Ogie Mendoza, TangoBlitz is a blazing trail of magic and seduction around the region – Singapore, Manila, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Brunei, Ho Chi Minh, Penang, Miri, and Koh Samui – for the last 8 years. He is responsible in bringing world-class tango to the doorsteps of these Asian hotspots.

Coming to Manila on May 13-19, 2013, these five couples have dominated the Asian Tango scene in the last 3 years with their excellent style of dancing and quality teaching. 

Top billed by award-winning Milena Plebs, director and choreographer of Milena Tango Company, also referred to as the Eternal Tango Diva. She has taken part in films and documentaries including Assassination Tango starring Robert Duvall. A versatile dancer and artist, she has been working extensively with partner David Alejandro Palo, a rising star in the world of Argentine tango, teaching, performing and travelling across Asia and Europe, in festivals, workshops and master classes. They will be joined by  3 tango couples Laila Rezk and Leandro Oliver whose dedication and pleasant disposition have endeared them to their countless students and followers all these years; masters of the stage  Analia Carreno and Luis Ramirez; and Noelia Colleti and Pablo Giorgini whose partnership dates back to when they were young lovers. Now married with twins, they have since metamorphosed into very fine and dedicated tango artists,. The last pair is considered the youngest partnership in the group, but Tamara Bisceglia & Federico Paleo have displayed immense prowess and ability, both in teaching and performing. They have managed to show what hard-work and dedication can do to survive in this highly competitive world of Argentine Tango.

Find out why Argentine tango is now the rage all over the world. The music alone is mesmerizing; the dance, passionate and enchanting.
