Native Argentinians and New Generation Dance Company directors Dardo Galletto and Karina Romero have been teaching tango classes for more than a decade. Romero first stepped on a dance floor at age 6, eventually honing flawless tango skills—the same ones that landed her numerous theater, television, and film gigs—while studying under masters of the art in Buenos Aires. An actor by age 12, Galletto initially began studying dance in his hometown of Cordoba to supplement his theatrical career. The dancer eventually realized that tango, ballet, and modern dance were where his passions truly lay, leading him to move to New York in 2001 and found his genre-melding troupe two years later.
The team's latest project, Dardo Galletto Studios, was founded in 2010 to acquaint newcomers with the art of tango. Assisted by a fleet-footed faculty and armed with an uncanny knack for enunciating through the rose in their teeth, the duo lead classes and events seven days a week for dancers of all experience levels.
