Leonardo & Tracey

Tracey Acosta

Tracey with her partner Leo, are the hosts and organisers of 2 major annual Festivals in the UK. Leo is one of the most authentic Milongueros currently living in the UK. 

Tracey has danced Tango for nearly 20 years and has been  taught exclusively by Leo for the last 12 years. Having danced ballet from the age of 4 and then later Latin American and Ballroom, she understands different dance style technique and is able to analyse and offer clear explanation to people from other dance styles who wish to learn the Argentine Tango. She dances all the styles of Tango and all the rhythms and is dedicated to teaching the improvisational form of Argentine Tango.

Together with her partner Leo, they have now established a unique Argentine Tango School in Bournemouth since they moved to Dorset from London 3 years ago.

Leonardo & Tracey

Bridget Mayer

In 2001, Bridget spent one year in Buenos Aires where she underwent extensive training in Argentine Tango. She started her studies with Claudia Bozzo at the "School of Tango".

She acquired her Ladies technique skills through years of dancing, from her former partner Leonardo Fandango, and studying ladies styling whilst in Buenos Aires during her many visits. Her favourite ladies technique teachers are Johana Copes as well as Aurora Lubiz, renowned female dancers and teachers in Buenos Aires.

Bridget admires the authentic Tango such as Tango Salon and Tango Milonguero and over the years and during her travels to Buenos Aires she has developed a thorough understanding, feeling and approach for the authentic Tango, which she tries to transmit to her students in her group and private classes. Her ladies Technique workshops which she regularly runs in London are hugely popular and sold out.
