Osvaldo Natucci was born in 1940 in Florida, a mostly residential neighborhood of the Vicente López Partido in the northern suburbs of Gran Buenos Aires, Argentina. His father was a bus driver who came from Italy and his mother was Argentinian and a house wife. It was the era when parents could dream of their children going to the university. Their dreams were met; Osvaldo and his two brothers are all university graduates with Osvaldo being a mechanical engineer.
Osvaldo came from a generation where to be a “buen Portenio” (good Portenio) you needed to meet two mandates: to play soccer and dance tango well. That was how he developed his passion for the music and the dance.
Osvaldo Natucci is one of the most reknown djs in the world. For years he was the musical coordinator and dj at the historic milonga El Beso, one of the most prestigious milongas in Buenos Aires. Osvaldo Natucci has listened to tango from the age of five.
For ten years consecutive years he was the official dj of the Tango Festival organized by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires.
It is his tandas with which competitors are using to vy for the Metropolitan Championship and World Championship of Tango in Buenos Aires. It is his belief that a good dj should be a good dancer, and a frequent visitor to milongas.
Osvaldo Natucci has also devoted time to teaching. He has held several seminars on musicality for tango dancers and djs, and has trained many djs who are in high demand in the milongas of Buenos Aires.
Oscar Casas and Ana Miguel
Oscar, a native of Buenos Aires, has been immersed in tango since birth. His father was a milonguero who organized Milongas in Parque Patricios, a barrio in Buenos Aires. He is a well-known figure in the Milongas there and his distinctive style is admired by other milongueros. Oscar is a gifted teacher who has taught workshops and private lessons in Buenos Aires, Canada, Europe, and in many U.S. cities. Studying with Oscar is intense but fun because of his unique approach to teaching and his charismatic personality.
Ana Miguel grew up in Almagro, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, in a family of bandoneon players so tango is in her blood. She studied tango and dance, has taught tango for many years and performed in several tango shows, including the prestigious "Esquina Carlos Gardel" in Abasto. Her current position is teaching tango with Oscar Casas.
Oscar's and Ana's dancing and teaching incorporate some concepts of many styles of dance but they still remain true to the principles of the "Old Guard". Their milonguero dancing style is fun and fresh.
