About Our Dancers
Meet Santiago Yanez and Deborah Lynne
Santiago and Deborah met in Buenos Aires in 2006 dancing tango. Together they bring a rich background in tango, dance and movement studies to their partnership. In 2008 they began teaching together and founded The Tango Studio in Vancouver, BC. They have been an integral part of building the local tango community, offering a warm and inviting space for learning and socializing. Their classes are devoted to developing body awareness, connection, creativity and musicality with the goal to transmit a connectedness created in the magic of improvisation. Their love of tango and enthusiasm for sharing its passion and poetry make them compelling performers.
Santiago and Deborah have been honoured to share the stage with many talented musicians and dancers as part of the cast of Tango Poema. They have also been featured performers at The Dance Center, The Act, New Works Dance Festival, Quadra Island Chamber Music Festival, In the House Festival among others.
