Dhruv discovered tango at Purdue University and soon after moved to Portland where he became part of a thriving community. Now a resident of the Bay Area, the spontaneity and nostalgia that first drew him to tango keeps taking him across the country for various festivals and marathons. He enjoys the entire richness of the range that tango has to offer values the many flavors tango dancers bring from across the worlds. As a DJ, he believes that a great experience on the dance floor simply originates from a burning desire to dance. He particularly enjoys djing milongas at marathons by building up on the energy that dancers bring for a packed weekend. He has been dancing at marathon Z since it first took shape and is beyond excited to come back to DJ in the wonderful DC community. Expect the entire range ;)

Semeon started dancing Argentinean dances 10 years ago and since then he has traveled to Argentina 3 times to get closer to the source. He played music and taught in more than 35 countries. Only in the past two years over 1000 people in Russia, Europe and the USA met Argentine folklore through him. He is the curator of dance communities in dozens of Russian cities from Moscow to Vladivostok and from St. Petersburg to Simferopol. In Europe, there is no such wide-profile dancer with a deep knowledge of the subject. Staying at the forefront of the folk movement, he is a bridge between the cultures of Buenos Aires and the rest of Argentina. Tango dancers begin to dance Chacarera and Zamba deeper, and folklorists feel the magic of tango. Even Argentines trust to teach them to dance the dances of their country. "For me, folklore is how nature speaks through people. And Argentine folklore is one of the most enjoyable and lively instruments, with which you can get closer to the nature of our planet and the nature of human relations." When people ask me: "why do you dance Argentine folklore?", I reply that I do not dance Argentinean folklore, but dance myself through it. ”
