Fabian started to study with Maestro Mingo Pugliese, keeping until today those teachings as the fundaments for his method to teach and share his knowledge. Also early, he started his “tour” of the most famous tango house in Buenos Aires, followed by the creation and direction of a prestigious show: “Corporacíon Tango” and the participation in the Copes Tango Copes, Solo Tango Show, Tango X 2.

 Josefina divided her life between two passion: the contemporary dance and the Tango Argentino since a very early age (5 years old). Dancing in several dance companies and taking the stage with several Tango shows. Fortunately for us, Tango prevailed over the contemporary dance, and she now dedicates herself exclusively to Tango Argentino art. We may highlight some of the people with which she worked, such as: choreographers Oscar Araiz and Juan Corvalán, “ El nene Massi” and Lorena Ermocida. Today, together with Fabián Peralta, she travels the world, invited by the most renowned tango festivals, sharing her knowledge and charm.


Together since 2013 they are the embodiment of a virtuous and “clean” Tango, in “vintage” style where all the details matter. A generous source of inspiration for each one of us, where the technique, coupled with professionalism and talent, allow classes that make us travel to the golden age of Tango through the sharing of experiences and knowledge acquired from those who lived it.

Câmara de Comércio - Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, 89

A little history of the place ...


The last years of First World War and those that followed saw a new way of living in the city, especially at night. Rua das Portas de Santo Antão was the chosen scenario. In June 1918 it is inaugurated in Lisbon, one of the first in a series of nightclubs, the Palace Club.


This opened at the place where it was thought to make a cinema and where there was a building in ruins. In 1915, a new project was presented to replace it, for luxury commercial establishments. Giving up on the idea of ​​a commercial building, that year was done in the interior, the first floor being totally occupied by a ballroom and a night club game: The Palace.


The Hall was then profusely decorated with stuccoes forming wreaths. In the vestibule, winged cupids topped the side doors of red marble, accompanied by eight bas-reliefs carved by Simões de Almeida Sobrinho, professor of the School of Fine Arts.


Tango, gambling and cocaine gave the characteristic tone to this new space designed for privileged lisbon, where the use of gala dress was obligatory.


The Club closed in 1920, and the property passed to the "Lisbon Commercial Association" whose foundation dates back to June 12, 1834. The building was renamed Palácio do Comércio and the Association today, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is there since 1921.

A Todo Tango! Academia Recreio Artístico - Rua dos Fanqueiros 286

A little history of this place ...


Founded on August 15, 1885 by António Pedro, Ricardo Sestelo and Júlio Silva, the Academia Recreio Artístico is one of the oldest collectivities in Lisbon in full operation.


Located in the BAixa Pombalina, A. R. A. is a great pole of development of associative movements.


It has always been open to the cultural iniciative and has given up its facilities for philharmonic bands reharsals, and has given origin to other associations such as the Tuna Comercial de Lisboa and the Arcos de Valdevez County House.


Nowadays the appeals of the society are something different, but the Academia Recreio Artístico remains a versatile space and open to cultural initiatives.


The century and a half of history of A.R A. is a living fountain of playful and cultural associativism.


The construction of the Academy in the present goes by the memory and homage to all its members from its foundation, by its founding partner more representative and also recognized by the city of Lisbon, Actor António Pedro.



Since 2012 it is the home for A Todo Tango!, a space dedicated to the Tango Argentino in the heart of Lisbon, where the fusion between dance teaching, event organization and performance complement each other. A school focused on the well-being of its students, which aims to strengthen the dissemination of Argentine Tango in Portugal and beyond, with the aim of caring for the community and encouraging its growth. It is also where happens every week, uninterruptedly for 6 years, the A Todo Tango! Milonga.

about us

Sónia Aires & Paulo Bernardo

Who are we?


United by the same passion, Argentine Tango, we created a school in Lisbon about 8 years ago, where the fusion between teaching dance, organizing events

and performance complement each other. We are a school focused on the well-being of its students, which aims to strengthen the dissemination of Argentine Tango in Portugal and beyond its borders, with the purpose of caring for the community and encouraging its growth. The unification of our experience in different areas of formation allows us to strengthen and revitalize the objectives that we propose ourselves every day.


Which Tango is ours?


As students of Natalia Games and Gabriel Angio, Virginia Gomez and Christian Marquez aka "Los Totis", our proposal is to feel the tango in the most traditional way possible, a tango without "additives", something vintage, never losing the originality, harmonious and, musical. We try to honor the "old milongueros",

on a journey into the past without forgetting the present to which we belong.


What is Argentine Tango for us?


The Argentine Tango is for us, absolute surrender, overwhelming, unique and unconditional passion, only to be revealed through an intimate embrace,

regardless of the form we give to it.


Plans for the future?


"Stay in beginner’s mind. Never leave beginner’s mind, because in beginner’s mind, the possibilities are infinite."

This is for us, the true challenge of the lovers of this dance.
