Since July 2012, Laly and Leandro partner together, constantly improving themselves as dancers of both Tango Salon and Stage Tango as well as Argentina’s popular folklore dances. They are regularly invited to perform at the most popular, well known and prestigious milongas in Buenos Aires. For e.g Salón Canning and Club Gricel They are currently in the cast of the Taconeando dinner show, special appearances at the legendary Café Tortoni, and are the most popular tango couple at Plaza Dorrego where they regularly dance.
They were formally a part of the Compañía Tango Folk Jesús Velázquez (The Jesús Velázquez Tango Folk Company) and have danced for various artistic and commercial projects. For instance in the show Yo Adivino el Parpadeo by Guillermo Camblor along with a commercial spot for Armani. As well as being dancers, Laly and Leandro are also the organisers of a Stage Tango practica called ‘Que Lo Parióoo!!!’ and give private classes at all dance levels.
