Paradiso is extremely proud to bring Milena Plebs, the great Buenos Aires tanguera and tango maestra, to Toronto as part of her inaugural tour in Canada. Milena is one of the most respected tango professionals, who found stardom after her stellar performance in "Tango Argentino", that is still considered by many, to be the best ever tango show to travel the world. More shows and more successes followed. Her impressive career on stage as a dancer, and as a choreographer, a dance company founder and a full time tango teacher brought her world-wide fame and she has been acknowledged by many with prestigious international awards. Her sparkling technique and enormous artistic talent make her the true embodiment of the essence of Argentine tango. This is a rare opportunity for our tango community to partake of her vast experience and deep understanding of the dance,.
We are doubly fortunate to see Milena dance with Pablo Pugliese, of the celebrated Pugliese dynasty. Pablo in his own right is famous as a dancer and teacher and has enjoyed world-wide popularity for many years. Friday, May 25, when both Milena and Pablo perform together, promises to be a starry and memorable night at Paradiso!
