An Argentinean native, Dante started Argentine Tango in Jujuy, a province in the north of Argentina, where he also studied ballet with his teacher Fulvia Chagra de Gruber and Andrei Kozlov (ex principle dancer of the Kiev Opera).

Dante has been dancing Tango for over 15 years. After performing in the most well known Milongas in Buenos Aires he moved to the UK in 2008 where he started his own Tango School  with his first partner Miriam Orcutt. They have also been invited to teach and perform in various countries of Europe, South & North America, Asia and Africa.

Together with Miriam, Dante has also participated in International Festivals such as Mallorca Tango Festival, Porto International Tango Festival, Ulverston Music Festival and the International Book Fair in Guadalajara as a cultural ambassador representing the UK together with Aurora Orchestra. Dante is the organiser of the very successful Oxford Tango Festival, which is now in its seventh year and attracts dancers from across Europe and also is the director of two important Tango Schools in the UK "The Northern Tango Academy" and the "Oxford Tango Academy" with professional resident maestros from Buenos Aires.  Dante has been teaching tango for over ten years and has become recognised for his unique and in-depth teaching methods.
