Sebastian Archival& Roxana Suarez
“Their dance is born of the dance floor.
If the wood is the parent, their feet are the child.”
Tango dancers everywhere define Sebastian and Roxana as dance-floor dancers due to their profound connection to the dance floor, exquisite musicality, emotional depth and technique, which keeps them rooted to the floor. Their recognition and acknowledgement of the dance floor’s humble yet powerful role in blossoming each and every dance and giving it its very own unique flavor, enables them to invoke a rare intimacy and authenticity in their dances.
Between themselves, Roxana and Sebastian have come to develop a dance style that remains close to the heart and person, combining a close embrace that is both warm and snug, refined technique and subtle sensuality. read more...<
