ALEJANDRA MANTINAN

Alejandra Mantinan is a living legend of tango. An icon, a goddess, a queen of tango. There aren’t enough words that can be said about Alejandra. She is one of the most famous, most decorated, and most sought after tango masters in tango history. As we speak, she was already completely booked out for privates months ago and still with many more requests pleading for a chance to learn from their idol. We’ve never had any guest instructor in such high demand as this. Her partner roster reads like the who’s who of tango royalty for the past 30 years. It’s hard to imagine any woman who has danced with more A-listers than her. See the list for yourself: Fabian Salas, Gustavo Russo, Leandro Oliver, Gabriel Misse, Osvaldo Zotto, Juan Carlos Copes, Juan Corvalan, Omar Ocampo, Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli, Pablo Veron, Martin Ojeda, Horacio Godoy, Diego “El Pajaro” Riemer, Leandro Palou, Aoniken Quiroga, Mariano Otero, Guillermo Salvat. She’s performed in over 340 cities all over the world, also starred as the main actress for the Tango Pasión show for 14 years, and also performed with THE live orchestras of Osvaldo Pugliese, Horacio Salgán, Mariano Mores, Jośe Basso and Sexteto Mayor. And yeah, one more thing, she was also Antonio Todaro’s assistant for 5 years. For those who don’t know, Antonio Todaro was one of the most creative tango dancers that ever lived who loved inventing long sharp complex sequences of flashy steps (still seen in many professional tango dancers today). Alejandra has also served as a top judge for the world Tango Mundial competition as well as many other competitions from around the world.
