BRUNO TOMBARI

& ROCIO LEQUIO

Dancers

Bruno Tombari

I’m Bruno Tombari, a native of the Villa Ortúzar neighborhood in the City of Buenos Aires.

Tango arrived into my life 17 years ago, thanks to my father. Before that, I devoted myself martial arts.

First, I became a student of tango, then a milonguero, and finally a dancer and teacher, and I consider it to be of vital importance to practice and evolve each of those four facets of my dance.  As tango is such a complex and fascinating language, one always discovers something new, and it’s for that reason that I like to define tango as “the art of embraced walking.”

I had the good fortune to be born in a family of artists, including pianists and opera singers.  Because of that, it was simply following family tradition to dedicate my life to art.  I found in tango a marvelous language, and also a vehicle for learning more about myself.  I have also been fortunate to discover the world and its inhabitants through the medium of the embrace.
