Daniel Carlsson is one of the pioneers who together with others built the European tangoscene in the 90s and onward.

After some years of teaching tango Daniel Carlsson started teaching tango fulltime and touring around the world. Daniel Carlsson has taught tango in 25 different countries and has danced tango regularly for almost 25 years. Students say he is a fantastic teacher, enthusiastic and with an enormous repertoir of material, excercices and possibilities.
Daniel Carlsson and Cecilia Piccinni met in festivals dancing about ten years ago and met for practising a few times. They decided to work together in Europe and this is the third year Cecilia Piccinni visits and works with Tangokompaniet touring with Daniel Carlsson.
Nidia Martínez Barbieri is educated in Contemporary Dance as a dancer, choreographer and teacher, and is also Pilates instructor. She started to dance tango as a social dance and as a part of her education in the last years of her dance studies, but it become more important and significative for her since she moved to Europe in 2011. As an immigrant, tango gives her the magic posibility of feeling herself at home at any city where tango exists, it can happen at big festivals or small milongas, in so diverse countries such as Spain, France, Turkey, Danmark, or Sweden. As a dance professional Nidia finds in tango a territory to explore body techniques of contact, to develop teaching methodologies, and a source of inspiration to her creations. Tango is for Nidia both a really pleasent and playfull social tool of integration, and a research about body communication. Her teaching in tango is focoused in subtil aspects of contact such as the body listening and the tonic variations.
