Hi, I am Claudio, newly joining KTC as honorary director.  I am truly privileged and honored to be part of a fast-growing organization hosting prestigious international tango events and leading tango culture in Korea. I like music and art, especially dance art expressing music through human movement. Living overseas for a long time, I learned that dance should be an integral part of everyday life. Tango is a social dance with deep philosophy presenting cathartic experience where two people become one through embrace. This improvising and bittersweet dance gives healing, love and hope for the Korea society where the people communication is difficult and the life is hard. I would like to devote my life-time affection for tango and other experiences in advancing the Korea tango culture globally.
