Chicho Frumboli &
Chicho and Juana are our old friends. Chicho first visited Ljubljana in 2005, with Juana 3 years later. Then and today and every day in between we admire him as tango genius and her as tango queen.
As dancers-artists they emit and evoke the strongest emotions. As far as we know they are the only tango couple than can make most of the audience wipe some tears.
Their dance is above styles. Their perfect technique allows them to effortlessly express their souls by dancing. It is not enough to say that they dance to the music. Probably the music dances them.
We all know the hi-story - Chicho was playing drums since 14 years old and studied theatre for 8 years before discovering tango. He modestly says that he was lucky to be invited to the tango revolution lead by Gustavo Naveira and Fabian Salas. For sure tango was even luckier. Chicho is driving and influencing the progress of tango dance. He's a movie star (Tango libre (2012) and Fermín glorias del tango (2014)). He calls himself milonguero viejo and rightfully so - he's history in progress.
He is also in a perfect tango couple with Juana Sepulveda. Her body interprets the finest details of the part of the music that Chicho dedicates to her. Her movements are profoundly deep, light, and connected. Personally she is reserved, gentle, tender. A true tango royal.
As teachers they are exact, devoted to tango and dedicated to the progress of the students. They are honest in the classroom and that is the ultimate compliment for a maestro.
