More info on the artists:
Lorena González Cattáneo and Gaston Camejo are originally from Uruguay.
Since 2006 Lorena devoted herself to several dance disciplines such as jazz, belly dance, flamenco, salsa. Her strongest background is the fact that she worked in traditional multicultural tango places or "Casas de tango" in Uruguay, where the past and present of the tango from Montevideo mix and remain intact.
Since 2012 she trained with many Tango masters in Buenos Aires and in 2014 wins the World Tango championship in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Gaston Camejo danced with the National Folkloric Ballet of Uruguay. In 2013 he met Lorena and moves to Buenos Aires. Since 2015 they merged their artistic careers, something they have dreamed of since long ago and begin together to bring the tango around the world.
They constantly strive to accomplish tango that does not just refer to its technical side, but that conveys artistic achievement beyond the movement.
