On Friday July 22nd, 2011 Gustavo and Jesica Hornos
competed in New York and won the First Place becoming
USA Argentine Tango Stage Champions.
The UNESCO declared the Tango an
Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity
Tango is a genre that originally involved dance, music, poetry and singing. Tango expresses a way of conceiving the world and life and it nourishes the cultural imagery of the inhabitants of the capital cities of the Rio de la Plata. This genre includes also the milonga, the milonga candombeada and the so-called vals criollo.
Tango was born among the lower urban classes in both cities as an expression originated in the fusion of elements from Argentine and Uruguayan`s African culture, authentic criollos [natives of this region] and European immigrants. As the artistic and cultural result of hybridization`s processes, Tango is considered nowadays one of the fundamental signs of the Rio de la Plata’s identity.

We are very sorry to inform you that we have decided to cancel our group classes, practicas and milongas at the Motion Arts Center until further notice as a way to contribute in the prevention of the coronavirus outbreak. Specially in these hard times we all must do the right thing and be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Even this decision will greatly impact our finances because this profession is our only source of income and our studios have an elevated monthly cost, needless to say, your health and wellbeing is way more important for us. We hope that this serious global problem will come to normalcy as soon as possible. In the meantime, please take good care, stay healthy and be part of the solution too. Let's stay in touch online.
In these very challenging times,
we ask for your kind support
to help us maintain this
beautiful dance space.
We want to come back
better than ever before!
In the meantime,
we will set up an
Online Class System
for you to keep up
with your dance journey.
Please stay tuned!
Love & Gratitude,
Gustavo & Jesica Hornos
