Diana del Valle and Juan Camerlingo

Diana del Valle, born in Buenos Aires, has been dancing classical ballet since her early youth and studied dance at the “Escuela Nacional de Danzas” in Buenos Aires. She started tango in 1999.
Juan Camerlingo, also born in Buenos Aires, initially trained as a physical education teacher. He started dancing tango in 1997. Both Diana and Juan complemented their pedagogical and dance knowledge with studies as tango teachers at the “Universidad del Tango” in Buenos Aires. In addition, both were graduates of the “Dinzel International System” for tango teaching, also aimed at training tango teachers. In 2002 they danced to every performance of the “Orquesta de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires” conducted by los Maestros Garelo and Garcia, also they were the first couple of the ballet of the “Universidad del Tango” for more than a year. In early 2003 they were invited to the 2nd International Tango Festival in Stuttgart, to which they traveled with the intention of staying and teaching tango. Since then they have been convincing with their workshops and performances not only in Stuttgart, because for many years they have been invited to the most famous festivals worldwide, where they have been accompanied by such famous tango orchestras as Sexteto Mayor, Quinteto Angel, Gran Orquesta Tipica Otra, Orquesta Silencio, Solo Tango, Cuarteto Rotterdam, Beltango, El Afronte or Quinteto Zarate.

The likeable and down-to-earth nature of Diana and Juan as well as their high social skills in dealing with people enable their students to discover their own enthusiasm for movement and music in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Their passion for teaching tango is especially evident in their didactically perfectly structured classes, which include both individually tailored exercises and precise technical explanations. At the same time, it is very important to them to convey an awareness of music to their students, so that “it is not the movement that determines the dance, but the music that determines the movement.”
