& Peggy Dadaki
Dimitris Loukakis
& Vicky Damianou
Dimitris and Vicky are among the first professional Tango dancers in Greece. Through seminars and lessons attended in Greece, Europe and Argentina, they set in their own style, incorporating in their dance the latest trends in tango, but retaining many of its traditional elements. In 2005 they founded their own school, "Chorotropio", which today is one of the most famous and well-known schools in the Tango area. Having already taken part in many shows, performances, festivals, etc. and not wanting to confine themselves only to the dancing aspect of tango, they founded in 2014 the group "T for Tango", which consists of artists who, although coming from different places of the performing arts , have a common communication code, the tango. Dancers, actors, lyrical singers and musicians jointly create and explore the wide range of artistic expression offered by the Argentine tango. The group has already staged three performances, "Tango en Tres", "Tango vs Tango" and "Tango Noir".
