Tango Esencia is delighted to welcome yet again another former World Salon Champion Dante Sanchez and partner Indra Hiayes in Melbourne. Currently touring New Zealand and Sydney, they reached out to us as never been in Melbourne before.
A little about these wonderful dancers…
Dante started studying Tango at the age of 10, dancing at various folklore and Tango festivals all over Argentina. He became the 2007 World Tango Salon Champion when he was 19 years old.
Since then, he has appeared in various shows including ‘Tango y Nad Mas’ and Senor Tango. He was also invited to perform with the very well know and respected Maria Nieves at a prestigious event in Buenos Aires and currently travels internationally teaching and performing.
Indra took her first steps in Tango at the age of 9. She has since taken part in many shows, competitions and festivals. In 2015, she moved to Buenos Aires to continue her studies in Tango and became Dante’s dance partner. They began performing in Buenos Aires’s most renown Milongas including Salon Canning, Club Gricel, El Beso and La Viruta where her captivating movements and energy wowed the crowds.
