Rino & Graziella Bio

Rino and Graziella started dancing together with the clear aim to create a stable dance partnership and consolidate their qualitative and personal growth in tango. After dancing other dances like ballroom at a Professional level , they decided to dance tango to enjoy a greater ( superior ) interpretative freedom of music and movement. The discipline and training learned from other dances have constantly led them to deepen the basic technical elements and to research a defined and recognizable teaching method.

Rino and Graziella have been teaching at several Italian tango schools. They are the directors of the En Tus Brazos Tango Association in Catania and Eboli (Salerno).

They trained in the tango dance with several masters and dancers like Alejandro Arenas and Marisol Morales among others. They continue studying and deepening their knowledge through special seminars organized by them and taught by Chicho Frumboli and Juana Sepulveda and Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne.

As teachers, their goal is to help students deepen the technical aspects of the Tango dance. In their lessons and practices they provide clear instructions on the fundamental tools that will help the students manage and create their own personal dance.



Rino and Graziella are also organizers of events such as the Catania Summer Tango Week. They have participated as teachers and performers at various national and international tango events such as:

  • The Rosario Tango Festival, Rosario, Argentina
  • Festivalito Tango Upload, Lisbon, Portugal
  • Tango Upload, Coimbra, Portugal
  • Mediterranean Tango Cruise
  • Bunker Tango, Turin, Italy
  • Fall Portland TangoFest, Portland OR, U.S.A.

As performers at

  • The Tangart, Athens, Greece
  • Boulder Tango Festival, Boulder, CO, U.S.A.
  • Argentinian Milongas as Milonga 10 and El Gardel de Medellin

They are the creators and choreographers of the theatrical Tango show ‘Which Tango Are You?’ on stage in Italian theaters.
