Returning champions: Maria Ines Bogado and Sebastian Jimenez (ARG).

It is with great pleasure that we can welcome the World Champions of tango salon and Metropolitan Champions in Vals (2010), Maria Ines Bogado and Sebastian Jimenez, from Argentina, back to Trondheim again.

For this joyful and happy occasion, they will hold 7 workshops from Friday to Sunday, and on Saturday’s Grand Milonga there will be a spectacular show just for you! During their stay in Trondheim, they will also be available for private lessons.

Maria Ines and Sebastian visited us two years ago, and their beautiful and unique style of tango mesmerized all of us. The results of our poll clearly showed that this was a couple that we would all love to have back, and now they are!
