Luisito Ferraris and Mirta Tiseyra
Thanks to Jantango for drawing my attention to Luisito Ferraris and Mirta Tiseyra. Argentines, they've lived and taught in Italy for nine years. I'd like to know what anyone thinks about their dance. I love it, especially the last 30 seconds, when their torsos follow the swirl of Fresedo's violins, while their feet keep the beat. It looks like the best social tango: it's a display but it could also be in a milonga.
The significance of living and teaching in Italy is that they might well have automatic entitlement to visit and teach in the UK too. I wonder if it's worth trying to get them to visit London from time to time.
PS: He might normally be named Luis Ferrari. & I'm not sure they teach regularly together. Will try to find out.
