Tango Fandango is run by Leonardo & Tracey Acosta. Together they are one of the most experienced professional Tango couples in the UK and have established their School in their own ‘Salon by the Sea’ in Bournemouth.
Leo is Argentinian and comes from a Tango family in Buenos Aires - he has danced Tango for over 50 years since he was a young boy. Taught initially by his father, he learnt the authentic Milonguero style of Tango and in subsequent years the Salon and Nuevo styles. He has danced in numerous theatres and milongas in Buenos Aires and Europe.
He arrived in the UK in 2001 and quickly set up his School - Tango Fandango in London. Since then he has taught 100’s of students the authentic improvised Argentine Tango.
Tracey has danced ballet, Ballroom and Latin American dance for a large part of her life. Although she has danced Argentine Tango for nearly 20 years, she considers that she really started to dance when she met Leo 12 years ago. Leo re-trained her to dance the authentic Tango and now they specialise in dancing the improvised art form of Argentine Tango, even in their performances.
