Ozgur Demir, he is a Turkish but he lives in Buenos Aires since 2007. He has been dancing and teaching Tango more than 9 years. He started his professional tango life in Turkey. For him Tango is the only way to have an unlimited communication with another person, becoming one from two, not only with body, steps or music but also with souls! He studied with well known teachers such as Fabian Salas, Julio Balmaceda, Gustavo Naveira and Chicho Frumboli but mostly he improved by practicing himself. He teaches, dances and travels with Marina Marques .He performed in many milongas of Buenos Aires such as Practica X, Tangolab, Tangocool, Loca Milonga, Maldita, El Beso and etc. He used to teach his regular group classes at Tango Brujo in Buenos Aires and He already gave loads of workshops in different Cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Basel, Reykjavik, Stocholm, Moscow and Istanbul. He travels a lot to spread out what he believes about Tango.
Marina Marques was born in São Paolo, Brazil, and she started her artistic career at the age of 11 by taking several acting workshops at theatre school. Five years later she became interested in Latin dances and she applied to a number of schools to complete her studies and receive the title of dance teacher for forró, samba and zouk. Her thriving need to learn new things gave her the impulse to study modern dance at the “CIA Raça de São Paulo” school. Then she has specialized in tango, studying with Jaime Arôxa, Ronaldo Bolaño and Giggio Giovanni from Brazil. Then she moved to Buenos Aires and worked with very well known teachers of different styles of tango to improve her skills. Last a few years She has been performing and teaching all over Europe, Argentina and Brazil.
Ozgur & Marina have been working together for a year. Their style is a combination of very strong tecnique, musical expression and emotional expression without loosing elegancy of Tango! And they want to teach to everyone how easy to make two people to get know each other in the embrace! their style is neither traditional nor Nuevo tango but they use all the elements of nuevo tango with mostly close embrace..
