Hernan Dionysus Ohaco ( ARG )
“The learning curve of tango is infinite like an 8,we never stop learning”
A lover of tango as an art form, Hernan aims to influence and inspire other dancers, as well as showcase how beautiful the dance is for communities.
Hernán has given weekly classes and special workshops in many stages of the tango world, especially in Europe and Argentina.
From the passion for Art and teaching, several projects were born that are still developing with the hope of being able to share what he has learned, from his experience and education.
“We perfect ourselves so that our lessons are useful so that you can experience, with our program, an understanding of the dance that goes beyond the aesthetic and visual”
We are developing a flexible technique that helps naturally in the way we express and share our feelings when we dance.
This technique is giving us the tools to educate and support complete dancers.

When he later became acquainted with the Argentine tango, it really took her into it´s embrace!

Using their knowledge and background in tango and different dance styles they bring their students into dancing deeper in connection with their own bodies, the partner, the music, they improve their technique and they teach them creative movements with freedom in the dance. They have a high level of teaching Argentine tango in a pedagogical, step wise build up way, which is organic, with flow and fun.

The new piece RÉvolution by the renowned Helsinki clown group The Red Nose Company brings a speech about humanity and the need to be seen to the stage. The duo’s previous performance Babylon was a theatrical event in 2018 and was also seen at Le Petit Festival. The performance turns the configuration of power between clowns upside down and deals with the distribution of power on a daily and personal levels. Who has the power to make the invisible visible, or the visible invisible? The performers Hanna Seppä (RÉ) and Minna Puolanto (Babylon ) were awarded the Best Performer Award at Fin Fringe in the spring of 2022.
