German Cornejo's Tango Fire
The award-winning Tango Fire returns the UK direct from a West End run, due to incredible popular demand.
Starring internationally renowned Argentinean tango superstars German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi, who are joined by a cast of extraordinary tango dancers, including World Tango champions, this is a fiery and explosive journey through the history of authentic Argentine Tango.
Six incredible couples show off some of the speediest footwork and tightest twirling in the business while demonstrating their individual styles, accompanied by the astonishing Tango Fuego Quartet, playing live music on stage from tango’s most famous composers, including Piazzolla, Pugliese and Gardel, this is a sizzling, sensual show guaranteed to make pulses race.
Germán and Gisela have been practicing and perfecting their tango since the early age of 10 and 16 respectively. They have mastered the skills and styles of classical dance, contemporary dance, jazz, ballet, acrobatics & tango in the company of Argentina’s most respected teachers. After collectively winning 40 gold medals at national competitions, Germán and Gisela have each achieved the title of World Tango Champion.
Germán and Gisela’s professional development and growth has naturally progressed into teaching and coaching. They are currently regarded as two of the best Show Tango teachers in Buenos Aires thanks to their students reaching top positions year after year in the Tango World Championships. Germán joined Tango Fire in 2006, whilst Gisela joined the company in 2010.
Tango Fire has placed German amongst the world’s top choreographers. His past choreography experience includes Mission Tango Show (2007) under the Musical Direction of Lisandro Adrover, Tango Inferno – The Fire Within (2010/2011), and Immortal Tango (2016). Gisela was the choreographer of Tango Dance Premium (2007) and assistant choreographer of Immortal Tango (2016). Rave reviews from the New York Times, Ottawa Citizen, The London Times and Financial Times have established this couple as a tour de force in the world of Argentine tango.
