Guillermina Quiroga &
Mariano Logiudice

Guillermina Quiroga is considered one of the best female tango dancers in the world. She has influenced the role of the woman in the tango in a way that very few women have done so.
In her dancing career, she’s been a soloist with the Julio Iglesias World Tour; she has performed along the Luis Bacalov, Mariano Mores and Color Tango orchestras; and she’s taken part of critically acclaimed shows like Tango x 2, Tango Argentino and Forever Tango on Broadway. She’s been featured in many films: “Naked Tango”, “Marie Galant”, “Assassination Tango” and “Valentina’s Tango”. She has also produced her own show: Tango, Historias Breves. Ms. Quiroga, ‘a queen of tango since the last century’ is considered by The New York Times ‘the Fonteyn of tango’. The NY based newspaper says that ‘the spell of her style begins in her stance. She has a marvelously composed persona and memorably elegant posture’. The LA Times says that Guillermina ‘is famous for fusing traditional tango steps with hyper-flexible leg extensions and athletic lifts. An engaging stage presence and a formidable talent.

Mariano Logiudice has degrees in Physical Education and Psychology, a thesis about “Tango and Elderly” which explores the psychological benefits of the tango dancing on the elder people, and together with Guillermina they have started a new discipline, the union of tango dance and psychology, as therapy for people with physical and emotional needs. As Guillermina’s partner, Mariano has been participating in several, most acclaimed Tango Festivals all over the world. They danced with Tango Argentino at the closing ceremonies at the World Tango championship at Obelisco in Buenos Aires in 2021, and most recently they have been performing in  Evita at New York City Center as a soloist Tango couple, Carnegie Hall NY , Lincoln Center, NY, Tango of the Americas at Kennedy Center in Washington DC with Panamerican Symphony orchestra, Kodak Theatre in Rochester with the Philarmonic orchestra, several times at the Embassy of Argentina in DC.
