About a year ago I started taking lessons with Carlos and Mirella. I was sold after 1 lesson. Carlos is a masterful teacher who gives clear lessons with pleasure and dedication and especially humor. Apart from a charming appearance, Mirella is a very professional teacher. Through the lessons I have made a lot of progress with my tango skills. Of course there is still a lot to learn. This way I can watch with amazement and awe the beautiful tango shows that Carlos and Mirella give away. Then I know that I still have a long tango road to walk. At least one thing is certain...
I can heartily recommend lessons with this special duo to everyone!
In September 2013 we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with friends and family. During the preparation, our friend Petra, an avid Tango dancer, introduced us to Carlos and Mirella. An enthusiastic group of people who got the whole company dancing in a Tango workshop. Even those who hadn't set foot on the dance floor before quickly learned the steps under the expert guidance of Carlos and Mirella. It was an exuberant party that is still talked about.
Do you want a great party? Then call Carlos and Mirella!
Inventive choreographies and humor make dancing a party!
Carlos & Mirella presented a great show!
Carlos and Mirella provide a great cocktail of technique and dancing fun during their classes.
Can't stop smiling!
I have been taking samba de gafieira classes for several years, and have come to know Carlos and Mirella as wonderful, passionate dancers and patient teachers. Not only do they know everything about their dances, they also understand better than anyone how to transfer that knowledge.
And not unimportant: during the lessons, workshops and boot camps there is always time for a joke!
Worked with Carlos and Mirella and the collaboration was good right from the beginning. Fantastic nice couple, professional, thoughtful and very modest, mentally good! You can also leave the arranging of other salsa couples etc. to them.
Great couple to work with
Top artists and Top teachers. Always breathtaking and impressive. This combination, at this level, is not often found.
Do'nt hestitate, book!
Carlos and Mirella make a wonderful dance couple and it is a pleasure to visit their classes. Their style is understated, romantic and very expressive.
They don't just teach you techniques: they teach you how to dance!
Wow! Just Wow! This was no ordinary show... I was sucked into your story, felt with your emotions, the build-up, the tension, the precision, the subtle and beautiful musicality. I had goosebumps all over!
This is art & I loved it!
I take tango dance lessons with Carlos and Mirella for about a year in The Hague. I am very satisfied with the way they teach! Good atmosphere during the lesson, humor, corrections, explanations, work in detail, nice music for dancing, extra tips, help, individual attention are elements that take place in the lessons of these teachers. I feel lucky to learn dance in such a way, I enjoy every lesson and I always leave with a good feeling after the lesson. My development within a year is great and now I can enjoy Argentine tango, vals and milonga dancing at tango salons. Milonga 't Klooster (Rotterdam), organized by Carlos & Mirella, is one of the most atmospheric milongas in the Randstad. I will definitely continue with these teachers.
I introduce them to people who want to learn to dance tango well and efficiently.
Carlos & Mirella, two great dancers who try to pass on their love for the tango to their students with a lot of patience and passion. Their enthusiasm is infectious, which is apparent from the many students from Rotterdam, The Hague and Antwerp who can regularly be found on the dance floor at the salons they organize. The level of the lessons, which are given in a homely atmosphere, is high with a lot of attention for attitude, style, leading and following.
At Carlos & Mirella you quickly feel like part of one big tango family.
What a fantastic couple… Professionally and personally. It was wonderful to be taught by them and of course to watch them. You can really feel the dynamics and energy between these two beautiful dancers. They take you me into their dance, the emotion and the music.
Thank you for your warm way of attention and teaching!
Carlos and Mirella are very good teachers. Both know how to explain the technique very clearly and are true professionals. The passion they have for tango shines through every lesson and the dance they perform at the end to wrap up the lesson is a joy - every time! In addition to their awesome tango and teaching skills,
