Elodie is fluent in French, English, and Swedish, and is proficient in both leading and following roles in tango.

In addition to her tango expertise, Elodie is also a Gyrokinesis and Pilates instructor, always eager to answer any nerdy questions about dance anatomy and body mechanics. She is renowned for her precise movements, clear communication, and emphasis on the importance of partnership to optimize our learning journey and experience on the social dance floor.



Love has jazz in his soul and tango in his body, making him a unique talent who seamlessly combines his skills as a dancer, teacher, and musician. With a lifelong career dedicated to tango teaching and music pedagogy, Love’s passion shines through in every performance and class. You might have seen him on TV, sharing his musical talents with Arvingarna 😉

Love is also the band leader and woodwind signature of the wonderful orchestra ✨Tangótica✨, where his artistry truly comes to life. His warmth, and multi-faceted talents create a special experience for every participants in his tango classes.

Their dance is an expression of emotions, connection, and creativity, while their teaching style is rooted in structure, attention to detail, and a good dose of humor.
