Brief Instructor’s Bios
Alicia and Luis have been dancing and teaching together in Argentina and Europe since 2010.
The magical connection between these two dancers and what they transmit during their classes is not to be missed.

Alicia Pons is an internationally renowned dancer and instructor with a refined technique and distinctive personality. She is most known for her beautiful and unique foot play and the strongly sensual connection with her partner, which is done with humor and elegance. It is usually said that her feet float like feathers, her steps are impeccable, and her dancing is fluid, her musicality exquisite. She exemplifies communication, connection, and presence in the dance and this is a focus in her teaching for both men and women.

Luis Rojas is an authentic milonguero with a passionate and elegant style. He transmits the pulse of Buenos Aires from his feet. Luis teaches Tango in the Argentinean cities of Mar del Plata and Buenos Aires since 2004. Sponsored by the Argentine Consulate in Vienna (Austria), Luis toured Europe in 2009 and he continues returning to Europe every year since alternating his workshops in Austria, Italy, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Spain, and regular classes at the prestigious dance hall La Nacional of Buenos Aires.
