About: Damian Lobato started dancing in 1991 with renowned milonguero masters, including “El Pibe Palermo”, (the former partner of Carmencita Calderon). After 8 years of dancing this style, he started training with Gustavo Naveira and Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli, and began teaching tango in different cities around Argentina until 2002. In 2003, 2004, and 2005 he was invited to tour Central America and Europe. In 2006, he assisted Fabian Salas in CITA, the annual tango convention in Buenos Aires. Since May 2006, he has been teaching extensively in Europe in such places as Scotland, England, Holland, Italy, Spain and in 20 cities in the USA. When he’s not touring he teaches classes at The Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.
Damian’s dance is characterized by a masterful combination of nuevo tango elements with traditional tango aesthetics. Seamless transitions between the various elements and a keen sense of musicality are emphasized in his dance and are applied in his teaching, training, and dancing.
