Gustavo Rember: Bio
My first contact with tango was, being a kid, watching a TV show with dad, mom and my little sister (who turned into pro tango dancer years later). On the screen, Osvaldo Pugliese and his orchestra in all their splendors were playing a tango that, I fantasize, might have been La Yumba.
During many years, I did not lose contact with tango, but I followed my passion for singing rock music. So it was not until 2004 that I started taking tango dance more seriously. I remember attending regularly four to six classes a week as I was determined to get dances someday with the best dancers I could, knowing the challenge to make it way.
Gabriela Elías (Mariano Mores choreographer), Horacio Godoy, Cecilia García, Elina Ruiz, Alejando Larenas, Marisol Morales, Natacha Poberaj, Moira Castellano, Mariano Chicho Frúmboli, Juana Sepúlveda, just to name those whom I’ve taken more classes with.
Regular classes at Estudio 4030 (2012), Milonga Pipetuá (2012), Estudio 2 Perfiles (2013), La Mandrilera (2015), Escuela Argentina de Tango (2015/16), and Estudio El Metejón (2016/17). Guest teacher at Tangology (London), Milonga la T (Malmö), with Gaby Farías (Montevideo) and Alberto Germanó (Tucumán, Argentina).
My dear partners in teaching: Cecilia Berra (today H. Godoy’s partner), Lorena Oviedo, Natalia Viola, Cecilia Piccinni, Gaby Mataloni, Paula Pandol, and, specially, Elina Ruiz.
MISTERIO TANGO FESTIVAL
From 2012, co-organizing with Gastón Torelli the Misterio Tango Festival. This festival runs in February with remarkable success and it is celebrating its 10th anniversary during next edition.
HOW I FEEL ABOUT DANCING TANGO
I do not feel dancing tango as a job. It’s more like a means for expressing yourself, your mood, your passion, your past, present and future. And, above all, as the possibility of sharing honest moments through music, embraces, laughter, pain and joy, which are the very roots of tango culture.
