Melina Sedó was born in London to a German mother and a Spanish father. She is - like tango - international. Melina has been dancing since her early childhood. After exploring ballet, modern dance, ballroom dances and flamenco she finally discovered tango and fell under its spell.
Detlef Engel is German and brings the analytical thinking of an engineer to tango. His perceptiveness is remarkable. He pinpoints the source of problems which plague a student and hinder progress exactly. This is astounding considering that Detlef has never seen a dance school from the inside - as if he had saved all his energy for the tango.
Some of their teachers:
Detlef and Melina have studied with many more teachers, but this is what they answer, when someone asks them about their "maestros": "We learned and still learn through the research connected to teaching and through the teaching process itself. This is why we are grateful to our students who have inspired us with their questions and ideas. You have been our most important teachers!"
