Gianpiero Galdi y Maria Filali
Gianpiero and Maria’s dance is based on their belief that the meeting between two different personalities and life trajectories complement each other when sustained by shared values, making their tango a constant and rich dialogue since their first collaboration, 3 years ago.
As performers, their main wish is to create moments of deep and shared emotion with the public, providing inspiration and reaching each person in a very personal way.
As teachers, they combine deep study of technical understanding and analysis of core concepts with the use of very concrete tools, to increase sensations and efficiency of movement.
Gianpiero was only 12 when his father (engeneer, martial art teacher and tango lover) involved him in a free project for youngster to approach tango. He fell in love with tango during his first trip to Buenos Aires when he was only 15 and since then he's been studying with all the major Maestros. Becomes a teacher the following year and starts performing in Italy and abroad at 18, realizing that he wanted to dedicate his life to tango. Since then he had the chance to travel around and perform with many great dancers as Mila Vigdorova, Corina Herrera, Cesira Miceli, Nadia Hronidu and others.
His tango and his pedagogy are strictly connected to his studies of music, engeneering and bio-mechanic as "a simple and efficient technique, based on natural laws and aware listening, as the key to free the real and intimate spirit of tango".
Maria’s career path is grounded in her desire to build bridges between cultures and the many forms of expression that inspire her. As a child she constantly moved from one country to another, before settling in France at 18 and graduating from the Bordeaux National Conservatory with honors, earning a Gold medal in 1995, and a Medal of honor in 1996. In the same year she also passed her Master in “Communication and Performing Arts” at University of Bordeaux III.
