Enriqueta Kleinman and Osvaldo Natucci offering workshops and DJ’ing in San Francisco
Osvaldo Natucci is one of the most renowned DJ’s in the world. For years he was the musical coordinator and DJ at the historic milonga, El Beso, one of the most prestigious milongas in Buenos Aires. For ten consecutive years, he was the official DJ of the Tango Festival organized by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires. Osvaldo came from a generation where to be a “buen Porteno” you needed to meet two mandates: to play soccer and dance tango well. That was how he developed his passion for the music and the dance. It is his tandas with which competitors are using to vie for the Metropolitan Championship and World Championship of Tango in Buenos Aires. It is his belief that a good DJ should be a good dancer, and a frequent visitor to milongas. Osvaldo has held several seminars on musicality for tango dancers and DJ’s and has trained many of the DJ’s who are in high demand in the milongas of Buenos Aires.
Enriqueta Kleinman has danced tango for over 15 years. She presently teaches group and private classes in Buenos Aires. The classes are for both men and women. She is an expert in Salon Tango – Milonguero Style, Tango Waltz and Milonga. Enriqueta also specializes in teaching technique for women and has led many courses and seminars. She performed at the Third and Fifth Metropolitan Championships in Buenos Aires. Enriqueta has taught and performed in the U.S in San Diego, Iowa, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle; in Canada in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, and Toronto; and in Europe. She has also taught and performed at the following Tango Festivals: 2008 May Madness at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor; the 2009 Portland Tango Festival; 2009 Tucson Tango Festival; 2009 Chicago Mini Tango Festival; and 2010 May Madness. Enriqueta also speaks English, having lived for several years in New York City. Enriqueta is also an artist by profession. View her website here: www.enriquetakleinman.com.ar/
