Pablo Inza and Sophia Saborido Workshops in Sydney

Direct from Argentina, tango teachers and performers Pablo Inza and Sophia Saborido are touring Sydney from September 5 - 8!

Click on the link for details of the workshops of Pablo and Sophia

I remember Pablo when he toured Sydney back in the early 2000s and he was an amazing dancer even back then. The wealth of experience that he will have to offer Sydney's tango dancers will be considerable. I have not met Sophia Saborido but anyone who partners Pablo will be of a very high dance level.

Here's a blurb about Pablo and Sophia from the workshops hosts:

"Pablo Inza is considered by many to be one of the present day tango scene's most influential figures and has won respect worldwide for his innovative and creative style. Pablo's personal style is rich in contrasting dynamics and playful musicality.
Frequently invited to some of the largest tango festivals in Europe and North America, Pablo has been teaching and performing around the world since 1999. An excellent teacher with a great capacity for analysis and an innate sense of musicality, Pablo's classes are popular amongst dancers of all levels.

Sofia Saborido is a delicate and intense dancer, a jewel of the new tango generation. Rich in musicality and quality of movement her dancing is based on a refined and sensitive connection. Very appreciated for her pedagogical method, she has taught in Europe since 2006 giving workshops, seminars and festivals."

Here's the most recent video of Pablo and Sophia performing:

About the Show
AL ROJO TANGO (Red Tango) is a creation of music director Elian Sellanes who has made numerous international tours in Canada, USA and Mexico amongst others. The show tells in brief about the birth and evolution of tango from its roots in Argentina towards its spread to the rest of the world by the hands of great artists such as Carlos Gardel and Piazzolla.

These grand artists are honoured during the show at various passages through short stories, images, staging and choreography thus leading the audience through time is a series of short scenes.

Elian Sellanes as a pianist is accompanied by Pablo Guzzo on Double bass who graduated at the Conservatorium of the Province of Mendoza (Argentina) who has completed various national and international tours, clinics of electric and double bass. The rising star is Juan Cruz Miranda is on guitar and the special guest is Silvia Gabriela who was the the prime vocalist of one of the most important Argentinean orchestras directed by the world renowned Maestro Calo who was a musician for Carlos Gardel.

The artistic direction of choreographies has been designed by the renowned multi-award
