Also part of this weekend is a Practica La Roca on saturday (3 hours) and on sunday (2 hours).
Stephanie Fesnau and Fausto Carpino are professional dancers, teachers and DJs of Argentine Tango.
Dance and theater were always present in her life since she was a child. At the age of sixteen she discovers tango, thanks to a friend of her’s, and from that moment on, tango has been always more and more present in her life, until it became it’s essential part.
In her short but intense tango career, she collaborated with several dancers in various schools in Warsaw, Paris and Florence.
Since July 2011 she’s in a fix dancing couple with Fausto Carpino.
Fausto Carpino (Syracuse, Sicily)
He had his first encounter with dance at the age of six, for twelve years he has studied, practiced and participated in many Ballroom dance competitions, regional and national, who have seen him always among the first places.
At the age of sixteen, thanks to his sister Barbara (also dancer) and his partner Claudio, who had recently discovered argentine tango, Fausto had his first contact with this dance, remaining fascinated.
From 2006 to 2012 he was a member of the organization of the Syracuse International Tango Festival.
Fausto and Stephanie, are a dance couple since July 2011.
After an intense period of preparation, they begin to participate in various tango events as teachers. So far they have taught in more than 27 different countries and 85 cities.
Their lessons are focused on how to propose oneself to the partner in a comfortable way within the embrace, based on logic and natural movements.
They believe that connection, musicality and technique are the keys to fully appreciate the beauty of tango.
