About the presenters

Alexandra has been teaching tango for 15 years and in 2002 co-created the first Argentine tango school in London, Tango in Action. She now runs Alexandra Wood Tango School based in London and enjoys travelling to teach and perform internationally.
Since the age of three Alexandra trained in classical ballet and later in contemporary dance. She trained in dance and other performing arts for six years, in the latter three she studied and gained BA Hons degree in Dance. She originally worked professionally as a contemporary dancer, and continues to train and study all forms, but her passion for Argentine Tango formed her career.

Alexandra’s tango training took place mainly in Buenos Aires where she had the privilege of performing in many milongas. She studied with many teachers including masters Miguel Angel Zotto (with whom she had the honour of teaching with), Osvaldo Zotto, Los Dispari, and the incredible Misse family especially the late Andrea Misse.

Alexandra was dance captain and performed in the stage hit Midnight Tango for two years. She also performed with Guillermo Torrens for Milos Karadaglic at The BBC Classic Brit Awards, and on the TV show This Morning. Alexandra danced in The TV show The Zingzillas, and during 2013 performed on Strictly Come Dancing. She tours currently in the UK, performing for Tangomotion with Tango Siempre, and creates tango holidays.

Guillermo is an Argentinean dancer and teacher with many years of experience and has performed at many of the theatres and Tango Houses in Argentina.

He has been based in the UK since 2007 and has his own tango school, Tango Unlimited, in the North of England. Guillermo teaches regularly with Alexandra Wood in London, and at festivals, special workshops and Milongas in many parts of UK.

Guillermo performed with the Midnight Tango show in London’s West End and with the three national tours from 2011-2013. He also performed with Alexandra Wood for Milos Karadaglic at the BBC Classic Brit Awards, on the TV show This Morning, and currently tours nationally with Tangomotion. Guillermo has won two LUKAS awards in the categories "Tango Performers of The Year" and "Tango Teachers of The Year”

He performs and teaches internationally, including tango holidays organised by his Tango School.
