Tango Nederlands

Silvia and Federico

Silvia and Federico met in Summer 2015 in the Netherlands. Soon, they decided to start teaching Tango Argentino together. Since then, they have been constantly working on improving as a dance couple and developing their own authentic style in teaching and dancing. They also started performing together in 2016. In 2017 and 2018, they reached the Semifinals of the UK European Tango Championship in London.


Together, Silvia and Federico make a great and very professional team in supporting and encouraging their students, always keeping them challenged and interested, while making sure that nobody forgets to have lots of fun!

After taking their classes, you will become a confident dancer with a diverse toolbox of moves. To make this possible, Silvia and Federico strongly focus on teaching very solid technical basics. Posture, walking, embrace and musicality are the cornerstones of connecting with your partner and the music in a harmonic way and you will get a strong feel for each of them.

Their work is characterized by a continuous research on the sources and principles of body movement. Their Motto is that working on the details and clear communication is the key to a comfortable and well connected dance.


Currently, Silvia and Federico give group classes for beginners intermediate and advanced students in Leiden, as well technique lessons. Private classes can be requested any time for all levels.
