Carlos was a close friend of Carlos Gavito, who was lead performer of the show “Forever Tango”. It is Stasi’s opinion that Gavito was the best dancer and instructor of his generation. They worked together on several shows. The milonguero style of Gavito is what Stasi continues to convey to his dancers, emphasizing the importance of the walk, the embrace and musicality of the tango. “We have to dance the silences,” says Carlos.
