The first tango dancing I ever saw was on stage at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. It was 1986 and I saw Tango Argentino, which later changed my life along with that of so many other future tango aficianados. We were impressed with the entire show, but especially by the lead couple--Gloria y Eduardo Arquimbau.
On my first visit to Buenos Aires in 1997, I came on a Tango Tour which included classes with Gloria y Eduardo in La Confiteria Ideal and a tango dinner show at Michelangelo in a gorgeous antique brick building in San Telmo where they still perform.

Here the legendary couple is dancing a milonga at Sunderland in 2009. Still today they travel internationally giving classes at festivals and workshops. They are old-school, stage dancers who choreograph their routines as opposed to milongueros who dance social tango, but their performance quality, energy and personalities make them always entertaining to watch. Gloria y Eduardo Arquimbau are classic. As they themselves say, Forty years of dancing tango is not nothing!
