In 2005, Sergio created the “Learn Argentine Tango System.” He wanted to find an “easy approach” to the fundamentals of traditional tango in the same way that most of the socials dances are being taught in NYC. He investigated the teaching methods for Salsa, Hustle, Swing, Flamenco, ballet, modern dance and jazz among others. Using this research he created a very easy way to understand, enjoy, and dance tango.
In 2007, Sergio founded Strictly Tango NYC, and since then his school has been spreading the Tango in New York City and beyond. More than 15,000 people have taken their tango first steps at his school. In 2010, the school started to teach tango at the parks in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn giving people their first experience with the culture of the dance and the music. His school Strictly Tango NYC is very well known for its welcoming environment, great community, and the quality and method of the teaching.
Today, Sergio continues directing, teaching, producing shows, and performing in NYC with a lot of love and dedication.
