About our Instructors

About Tete & Silvia

Pedro 'Tete' Rusconi is the foremost teacher of the close embrace style of Argentine Tango. Since 1995, Tete and Silvia Ceriani have been dancing and teaching together. They have toured throughout Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Spain, Belgium, Sweden and the United States (Ohio and Arizona), teaching, performing and being part of Tango Festivals. They prioritize the attention in the musical compasses, the sensibility of the body, and the liberty of the movement. Their tango waltz classes are highly appreciated worldwide. Tete is noted for his individual style of musicality, and the tango of the golden era of the 1940's and 1950's.

Tete and Silvia have two tango instructional videos, that are used and seen by most close embrace dancers.

Paul Pellicoro of New York wrote the book "Paul Pellicoro On Tango" (2002), where he discusses the masters of tango and included in the book are Tete and Silvia. The following are links to videos where you can watch Tete and Silvia perform a Vals and a Tango
