Diego Valero &
Delfina Pissani

Diego Valero is considered by the public as an energetic and musical dancer. Stripped of public interests, from the beginning in the arts -his childhood- he pursues paths of conscious knowledge and free will. He has established himself as the winner of different theater, tango and Argentine folklore tournaments. He is appreciated as a instructor for his simplicity and pedagogical clarity when teaching the techniques. We could then conclude that he is an artist who has been consumed over the years as a great instructor, dancer and choreographer.

Delfina Pissani is a instructorinstructor, choreographer and tango dancer. She, in turn, has trained professionally in other branches of dance and art such as classical, contemporary, Argentine folklore and theater, capturing celebrated works within each discipline. She stands out for her presence and scenic power when performing an artistic act. She has toured within her country Argentina, South America and Europe. Her challenge is to continue undertaking projects that generate new learning and thus nourish herself from the infinite path that movement and stage productions generate.
