Gloria and Eduardo – “Ciudadanos
Ilustres (Distinguished Citizens) of Buenos Aires
Dancers and choreographers Gloria and Eduardo Arquimbau
were declared “Ciudadanos Ilustres (Distinguished
Citizens of Buenos Aires City” for their long
and successful career and their contribution to the
Argentine Dance, 11 December 2006.
They began working together as youngsters with Francisco
numerous musicals, and for many years they have
been one of the most popular tango dancing couples
in the world . They performed with the critically
acclaimed musical Tango Argentino from
1985 to 1992. They were choreographers and headliners
of the original cast of Forever Tango in
San Francisco from 1994 to 1995. With their Japan
tours with their shows Tango, Tango and Corazon
they paved the way for many shows that followed.
They are one of the legendary couples in Tango history. They have been performing for nearly 40 years ...
BUT Eduardo is also one of the great milongueros
of his generation--the guys who grew up dancing in
the milongas in the early-mid 1950s. He is one of
the teachers most responsible for the worldwide popularity
of "club" style tango (or milonguero style,
confiteria style, close embrace, apilado--whatever
your preferred term is). Eduardo has taught this
style, which is once again the predominant style
in today's crowded milongas of Buenos Aires, all
over the world. The style is very rhythmic, very
close and very fun.
Since 1972 Gloria and Rodolfo Dinzel – dancers
and choreographers – have been dancing together
as the acclaimed tango couple “Los Dinzel”.
They developed traditional and folkloric techniques and
toured the world with the Tango Argentino show. Looking
back on over 30 years of experience in tango teaching
and research, they are the authors of El Tango. Una Danza.
Esa ansiosa búsqueda de la libertad – Tango,
an Anxious Quest for Freedom – (translated into
English, German, Italian and French) and El Tango. Una
Danza. Sistema Dinzel de Notación Coreográfica – Tango.
The Dinzel System of Choreographic Notation.
Members of the National Tango Academy, they are also
Chairs of the Dance Department of the Universidad del
Tango – Buenos Aires Tango University.
Today, they continue their successful career as dancers,
choreographers, teachers and researchers of tango dance
in Argentina and world-wide.
