Michalis Karatsioris & Georgia Zikou

Michalis Karatsioris from an early age began to discover different forms of dance such as Cretan folklore dances, RnB, Hip Hop and Freestyle while later on Tango unexpectedly entered his life, during his studies in Physics Department - Crete University, late 2008. The unique ability of communication and the power of connection through the embrace are the key features of this dance that charmed him and absorbed him completely. He has attended Festivals, Marathons and local milongas in several European countries and has delivered weekly lessons (TangoFIX, Tangokompaniet) and seminars (Tangoneon, Malmo, Visby, Lund, Gothenburg) in Greece and Sweden since 2013. He has performed and played as a Tango DJ in milongas (TangoFIX, Racing Club, Milonga Del Sur, La Sonrisa, Camarin, DGUC Milonga), Festivals (Sunny Tango Festival, Kalamata Tango Festival, Maldito Festivalito, Easter Tango Malmo, Malmo Festivalito, Tangocamp - Sweden 2015) and Tango Marathons (Malmo Tango Marathon 2015/2016, Oktoberfiesta, Cyprus Tango Marathon) across Europe. Finally, he was a member of the successful theatrical show "Tango y nada mas" in 2013, coordinators of which were Loukas Balokas and Georgia Priskou. Since 2016 has the honor to teach again in TangoFIX studio.

 

Georgia Zikou (half Greek, half Brazilian) first met Tango 20 years ago having already, dancing and teaching experience in Latin dances and Flamenco. Romance, passion, the dance dialogue and the uniqueness of Argentine Tango were some of the features that acted as a catalyst in order for her to be occupied all these years only by this dance. She has attended seminars in several European countries but what determined her artistic development was the frequent visits to Argentina, the birthplace of Tango. During all these years, she has organized Tango seminars in Athens, inviting internationally renowned teachers and dancers from Argentina and Europe and she has cooperated with Greek and International dancers, including Loukas Balokas, Alberto Colombo and Ozan Firat. She has performed and given Tango seminars in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra, Drama and Izmir (Turkey), Malmo (Sweden) and in International Tango Festivals like Tango Greece Festival, Tango Festival in Bursa, Lesvos Tango Meeting and the Belgrade Tango Festival while since 2014 is co-organizer of the summer Festival Tango, Lesvos Tango Meeting. Important milestone in her career was the participation in the creation of the Athenian Tangueria named Tango Bar 365 and since 2010 she works in TangoFIX studio.
