Magdalena Valdez y Roberto Zuccarino

Magdalena started her artistic career at the age of 13 at the “National Dance School”. Four years later, she was initiated to tango and has since developed a personal and singular style. She has performed in the most well-known tango shows (Tango Fire, Tangox2, Forever Tango, Solo Tango, and Tango Libertad), as well as in Esquina Carlos Gardel and Tango Porteño.

Son of renowned late Monica Carranza, Roberto Zuccarino began to dance tango at the age of 15 with Oscar Hector in the traditional Glorias Argentinas milonga in Buenos Aires. Trained by many acclaimed teachers, Silvio Lavia in particular, his career as a professional dancer began with a show at Pacific Galleries with the orchestra Los Reyes del Tango. He went on to participate in various tango shows and in 2011 he created his first show "Tango y Nada Más".

In 2012, the two dancers with important careers decided to join their paths. They started by performing at the most important milongas in Buenos Aires. They have also been teaching and promoting their tango style worldwide and participating in numerous tango festivals. In 2014 they reopened the doors of the famous milonga "Niño Bien" converting it into "La Milonga de Los Zucca", one of the most beautiful milongas in Buenos Aires.
