Due to popular demand, Itscoldupnorthdancetango team is stoked to invite Natalia Cristofaro (Argentina/Italy) back to Göteborg for the 3rd time.
During this weekend, Natalia and Binoy would like to share their tango secrets with you, curious dancers of Göteborg. Natalia’s humor, energy, ability to speak with her body, and patience touched us all during her two previous visits.
For more information about Natalia and Binoy, and past performances, see the bio section below.

Natalia is a young, professional dancer born in Rosario, Argentina.

I am the curator of the Itscoldupnothdancetango project, which aims to grow the Argentine Tango community in Göteborg.
The project was begun 26 months ago. What I’m most proud of is the number of eager beginners who have attended an Itscoldupnorthdancetango workshop, who have slowly grown into tango addicts. In the process, we have significantly lowered the average age of tango dancers in the community in Göteborg, and introduced a whole new demographic of human beings in Göteborg to this gorgeous dance.
