Pepito Avellaneda and Suzuki
music La luciernaga, Hector Vernier
Maestro Pepito was calles the emperor of the milonga.
He was one of our most important teachers. In 1993 we stayed with him for a month. He passed away in 1996. Most milonga passes in class are his.
Antonio Todaro and his daughter Titi
music Juan D'Arienzo
Maestro Antonio was one of the greatest creative talents in tango. He admired Fred Astaire, and was inspired by his choreographies. Through him, the women got a more important role in the tangochoreography. Many famous tangocouples are educated by Antonio. For us he made a choreography on "Malandraca" from Osvaldo Pugliese. Unfortunately, also he passed away too early: in 1994.
Raoul Bravo and Gisela Avanzi
music Maipo, Juan D'Arienzo
Maestro Raoul Bravo was born in 1934, and is still teaching. About 3 complex figures per lesson! Together with maestro Antonio Todaro he developped the method Todaro-Bravo. Recuerdos method is based on this, as the only tango school in Belgium.
