Los Dinzel

Sharing a fantastic interview with Gloria and Rodolfo Dinzel.  'Los Dinzel refers to an iconic tango couple comprised of Gloria Ines Varo and Carlos Rodolfo Dinzelbacher. 

Gloria and Rodolfo formed their dancing and life partnership in 1972.  Gloria's background was in classical ballet and Rodolfo's in Argentine folkloric dance.  They became famous after they joined the cast of the  show Tango Argentino which premiered in Broadway in 1985 in Broadway. The show toured internationally and ran for more than a decade. 

The production became a huge success worldwide, and was a major influence on the global renaissance of tango as a dance and musical genre; an influence that was often derided by milongueros as 'tango for export'.   

As well as their stage performances Los Dinzel are revered for their teaching and research into Argentine tango.  As a result of over 40 years research they developed a teaching methodology for tango that they call 'The Dinzel System'.

So here's the interview by Pepe Palazon. She has put together a great series of interviews with iconic people of tango. This is one of my favourites, as is her interview with Vanina Bilous.
