Angeles Chanaha: Tango master, Choreographer, Dj and organizer was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Tango, folklore and classical music were always present in her childhood. Her parent's circle of friends, mostly writers and artists, would frequently gather in her home where she was profoundly influenced by many of the great musicians, composers, poets, and singers who created the music used throughout the Tango world today. Artists such as Hugo del Carril, Rosana Falasca, Argentino Ledesma, Carlos Acuna. She began her dance training at the age of five studying ballet, folk dancing and gymnastics until she was introduced in 1996 to the great love of her life, Tango. She spent her formative years in the Buenos Aires of the 1990's and early 2000's. While she studied with many of the great tango masters. The ones who influenced her most deeply and with whom she studied regularly over a period of 12 years were: Jose Garofalo, Mora Godoy, Osvaldo Zotto as well as Gustavo Naveira, Olga Besio, Fabian Salas, Alejandra Mantinan and Mariano "Chicho" Frumboli.

She has performed and taught workshops next to two of the most renowned male dancers of all times, Miguel Angel Zotto -creator of Tango x dos- and Tony Award winner Carlos Gavito, as well as other renowned dancers such as Junior Cervila, Hugo Mastrolorenzo, and many others. She also participated as guest instructor in the Buenos Aires Tango Festival from 1998 until 2002.
