2015 Seoul Tango Festival - Maestros

Jorge Dispari y Maria del Carmen "Marita" Romero

Jorge and Marita have been teaching tango for more than 25 years. They have taught many generations of students, among which are some of the top dancers today. They are deeply passionate about salon tango and are two of the most important representatives of Villa Urquiza style. Marita was the last partner of the tango legend Don Carlos Estevez "Petroleo", one of the greatest innovators of tango salon, and she danced with him in the last few performances of his life. After Petroleo, Marita met Jorge at Club Sin Rumbo and they have been partner ever since.

Javier Rodriguez

Javier has been touring extensively in Europe and Asia since 1988 and he is one of the most sought after dancers and teachers in international festivals and workshops. He is known not only for his elegance, precision and musicality, but also for his pedagogy, which came as a result of his passion and respect to the traditions of Argentine tango. In an interview in "La Milonga", Javier was referred to as a "young" old milonguero - a dancer with the heart of an old milonguero in a young person's body. Javier has been coming to Korea to teach since 2007 and he is an integral part of Seoul Tango Festival.
