Maxi Copello was born breathing Tango. In his childhood he would accompany his father to the theater, seated in the lighting booth watching each show with awe and admiration. At one point in his life, the curiosity or his genes won him over and Tango became his biggest passion. Since then he has directed and acted in Tango movies and has traveled the world teaching and dancing tango.
Raquel Makow, born in San Francisco, California with a father from Buenos Aires and a mother from New York, began dancing at 10 years old. Dance was always something natural and essential in her life. She went on to win international titles in Ballroom competitions and danced in well known Ballroom shows in different theaters throughout the world. However, it was at the age of 15 that she discovered her true passion in Tango and later on in 2013 that she moved to Buenos Aires to pursue her new dream.
One calm weeknight in May of 2015, Maxi Copello and Raquel Makow met each other for the first time at the famous milonga at Salón Canning. They spent the whole night dancing with other people until the early hours of the morning when the people trickled out one by one, and the dance floor slowly emptied. The only people left were the late night milongueros and the two of them.
Raquel stayed still in her seat for the first time all night. Maxi finally had his opportunity. He caught her eye, invited her to dance with a cabeceo, and together they walked on to the dance floor. Maxi embraced Raquel, and she closed her eyes feeling and listening to each thing that Maxi told her with his body. They felt an intense chemistry from the moment they began dancing, and in that instant, they got to know each much deeper than they could have ever had with words. They found their soulmate in tango, and from then on, Maxi and Raquel dance together professionally and share the same dream to dance, create art, and to convey to others their love of Tango.
