Meet Maja & Marko
Maja & Marko started dancing tango in Zagreb, Croatia in 2002 in a small group of enthusiasts curious about this “new” dance. Some five years later they began giving regular lessons at the Tango Argentino Zagreb dance school. Their first and most influential teachers were Pablo Rodríguez and Noelia Hurtado and later continued to study with Noelia and Carlitos Espinoza. They also studied with Federico Naveira & Inés Muzzoppapa, Bruno Tombari & Mariangeles Caamaño, and Chicho Frumboli & Juana Sepúlveda, among others.
Since 2014 they have been working with tango professionally, holding workshops and performing all over Europe (Amsterdam, Minsk, Florence, Karlsruhe, Genova, Budapest, L´Aquila, Freiburg, Treviso, Poreč, Mantova, Halle, Sevilla, Lisbon, Procida, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Reykjavik etc.). In 2018 they have started to work in North America, Asia, and Australia.
They rarely teach figures and prefer to focus on the basic technical (walking, stepping, pivoting, keeping posture, finding balance, embracing, quality of movement, etc.) and musical (phrasing, change of dynamics, interpreting different orchestras, etc.) elements. Their philosophy is based on 3 ideas: feeling good, looking good and connecting with our partner to the music. One of the things they like the most about tango is the close embrace. They see it as a living, changing thing that enables us to transmit the movement that interprets the music. They like to play with the possibilities and limits of close embrace and encourage their students to do the same!
