Born in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina, Daniel can be credited with bringing authentic Argentine tango to Charlotte, NC, in the year 2000. His tango, and his teaching of the art form, is enriched by his background in martial arts, modern dance, folkloric dance, and competitive ballroom dance.
In addition, his childhood memories of watching Argentinean tangueros in his home city of San Rafael inform his dancing to this day.
Over the years, Daniel has studied with several world-renowned instructors including Facundo and Kely Posadas, Pablo Veron, Fabian Salas, Gustavo Naveira, Gloria and Eduardo Arquimbau, Osvaldo Zoto, Lorena Ermocida, Susana Miller, Marcela Duran, Horacio Arcidiacono, Alberto Paz, Valorie Hart, Jorge Firpo.
He has performed in many national tango events including Atlanta Tango Exchange, Asheville Regional, Fiesta Latina in Asheville, Charlotte Latin Fest, Fiesta del Pueblo in Raleigh, Spoleto Tango Festival in Charleston, and the Argentine Embassy in Washington DC.
Over the past several years has taught workshops in many cities including Atlanta, GA, Raleigh, NC, Virginia Beach, VA, Columbia, SC, and Asheville, NC, and has collaborated in multiple opportunities with the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Education Institute of Charlotte, the Levine Museum of the New South, the Mint Museum, and the Arts and Science Council of Charlotte.
Meanwhile, he hosts an ongoing free Monday night practica, Charlotte’s longest-running tango event, offers weekly classes for dancers of all levels, and is the founder of Passion For Tango, an organization dedicated to teaching authentic Argentine Tango.
