In 1994 moved to South America and studied Tango intensively for several years with late great maestro Ernesto ‘Pupy’ Castello. She performed in prestigious Milongas (such as ‘Almagro’) in Buenos Aires with him. On her return to Europe she hosted and assisted ‘Pupy’ as teacher and performer in London and Paris.

YirajeTango is a Tango dance school based in Stirling, Glasgow and it is currently building a community oriented project in Edinburgh. We worked intensively in the Central Belt of Scotland since 2013, in the UK since 2004, and occasionally in Europe mainland. The school was funded by Ariel Sanchez, a native tango dancer from Argentinean, a sociologist born in Buenos Aires and raised in Cordoba.
Teaching methodology of Yiraje Tango, which has been carefully designed throughout 14 years of experience, is focused on body language, communicative aspects of tango, and feelings. Tango dance has nothing to do with rationality and reason, but everything to do with feelings. Rationalisation of tango would mean rationalisation of feelings, which by definition hinders dance expression.
We are a community group established to help raise the standard of traditional Argentine tango dancing in central Yorkshire (Leeds/York area). Our main function is to provide a regular practica.
