Here is what Laura says about herself:"For over 15 years I have been teaching tango and organizing both stable milongas and encuentros.

Musicalizing means for me to create a connection between music and emotions, generating a wave that accompanies the dancers on the dance floor for the duration of the milonga.

I prefer tango that range from the '30s to the '50s, a period in which most orchestras particularly cared about dancing and dancers.

Being a tango dancer helps me to better understand the dance floor, to empathize with the many subtle nuances and emotions that navigate it.

I play tango music since 2008 in stable Italian milongas and more recently I had the pleasure of djing in encuentros both in Italy and abroad, a pleasure that is renewed every time and never equal to itself.

Dj Anthony Cronin (Ireland)

Anthony has been a tango DJ since 2007. He was a DJ long before he discovered tango, DJ-ing in nightclubs and radio in his student days in his native city of Cork, Ireland. Now he DJs Marathons, Encuentros and Tango Festivals at home and abroad. With a long list of countries already under his belt. Anthony is well known on the tango circuit as a dancer and DJ.

Anthony: "As a dancer first, I know that once I trust the DJ to be consistent my night is better and this is what I seek to give all dancers, comfort that the music will be danceable and flow tanda to tanda. Each time I try to gently tell a story and keep the dynamics changing across the night so everyone gets carried along. I want to live life to the full and laugh and that is what I try to give the dancers and their smiles are what make it all a pleasure.”

Anthony operates with only the highest quality transfers from shellac and vinyl always seeking to give dancers the richest sound possible by playing only lossless digital copies to get all that detail in the music to you the dancer.

Dj Mauro Volpato (Italy)

The main purpose of Mauro's Dj-ing is to create a "musical environment full of energy" in which the dancers feel at ease.

His musical tastes are oriented to the traditional Tango of the 30s - 40s, better if sung, but in his baggage there is also the Tango of the 50 and beyond, careful to recognize the dominant preferences of the club and the track in order to satisfy them.

Alternation of fast and slow rhythm, alternation of melody rhythm trying to get a good wave, with an eye always attentive to the quality of the songs, are the elements that characterize his playlists always refined and sought after so much that it is a pleasure to dance on his selections to the point that you will not be able to sit still.

He met the Tango in 1996 starting to dance it, attending a group course and participating in the first pioneer milongas in Venice and Mestre, meeting teachers such as Alejandro Aquino, Roberto Herrera, Mariano Frumboli, Gustavo Naveira, Julio Balmaceda, Ernesto Carmona, Carlitos Espinoza, and many others.

Mauro started TDJ activity in 2000, and participated in the seminar for 'Musicalizador de Tango', held in Venice by the great Felix Picherna back in 2001.

Since then he has continuously musicalized, in the major milongas of Northern and Central Italy and abroad, in Enquentros milongueri and Festivals, offering impeccable professionalism in evenings that are never "work" evenings but occasions to share his research and his deepening and study, in short, all his passion for Tango.

Music has always been the red thread of his passion, as a musician he studied guitar and now piano.

Mauro is a tango dancer who likes to dance and who likes to make people dance.
