Instructor Bio

Coming from different backgrounds and dancing experiences, Jonny and Virginia met in the DNI Tango School in Buenos Aires, where they began taking classes and practicing together. By the end of 2008, they began teaching and performing for DNI. Jonny and Virginia combine elegance and passion with technique, elasticity with strength, to create the perfect ingredients for beautiful and talented tango.

They have held exhibitions in some of the most prominent Milongas of Buenos Aires including Villa Malcom, Salon Canning, Club Gricel, La Baldosa, and Centro Cultural Konex. Along with the DNI Dance Company, they performed in prestigious theaters such as Alvear, Maipo, Margarita Xirgu, Caff and in El Cubo. They also performed in several international festivals such as the CITA ( Argentine Tango International Congress), Ciudanza Festival, El Misterio Tango, Tango en Punta ( Punta del Este), White Tango Festival ( Moscow), Nevskaya Milonga ( Saint Petesburg), Chicago Tango Week (USA), Toronto Festival (Canada), Mantova DNI Festival (Italy). They were also judges in all the categories for the Saint Petesburg Tango Championship.

Currently, they conduct private and group lessons at DNI Tango School. They also train in other disciplines such as yoga, modern dance, stretching, ballet, and theater in order to enhance their skills as dancers and performers on stage.
