Gustavo Benzecry Sabá and María Olivera first came to my awareness from YouTube videos a friend shared with me. Gustavo and Maria dance with elegance and musicality, and with an embrace that is to be emulated. From the many comments and reviews about this couple, it’s quite apparent that they are warm, generous, knowledgeable, genuine, passionate, and professional. This has been my experience with them as well.
My first opportunity to meet them was at the 2009 Portland Tangofest. I attended their workshops and took private lessons with them. Because they are precise and gradual in their teachings, students are able to obtain a thorough grasp of the class content. If their workshops were wonderfully informative, their private lessons were phenomenally enlightening. During my own private lessons with Gustavo and Maria, I was better able to learn the nuance and subtleties of the tango embrace. With all the individual attention, my questions were answered in exquisite detail and I received an abundance of direct feedback, all of which propelled my dancing ability to the next level.
For well over a decade Gustavo and Maria have taught in tango festivals and workshops throughout the world. Not only are they marvelous instructors and performers, they are renowned ambassadors of Argentinean culture. For all of these reasons we are excited that they will join us in Austin on October 5-10, 2017. To learn more about this fabulous couple, please visit Gustavo and Maria’s website and visit their Facebook fan page.
