Giannis Karadimos & Georgia Zikou

Giannis Karadimos

I have been studying and practicing tango for the last 11 years . My tango education took place
in Greece as well as at the source of it in Buenos Aires. I came in real contact with tango through
the experience of living in Buenos Aires. The people ,the places and situations that are created
around tango at its homeland brought me closer to its unique essence.
During these past years i attended classes with some of the finest artists in the field such as:
Sebastian Achaval , Roxana Suarez, Virginia Pandolfi, Fabian Peralta, Francisco Forquera ,Carolina
Bonaventura , Gabriel Misse, Alejandra Mantiñan , Gabriel Angio, Natalia Games , Gabriela Elias,
Silvio Lavia, Marisol Morales, Alejandro Larenas, Claudio Gonzalez , Melina Brufman and others.
I have participated in numerous performances as a part of a team choreography or as couple
choreography. Some of them are: charity dance gala with the participation of the finest greek tango
dancers ( Hotel Dionyssos Larissa Μay 2010), the tango- theatrical production under the name
“TANGOESIA” directed by the European champion of tango escenario 2011 Elli Karadimou (Agioi
Anarguroi March 2010), Syros tango festival 2016.
Tango in my opinion, signifies the relentless hunting of human senses through the expression of
movement and within the frame of the embrace between a woman and a man. Moreover the tango
music offers the fertile substrate for this latter endless pursuit.

 

Georgia Zikou

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.
