************************************************************
The idea of having a dance studio in Buenos Aires where art and culture would be part of learning and understanding the essence of tango in a centre where visitors could take time out from the intensity of the city, appeared for the first time 3 years ago.

We wondered – Is it possible to create something out of nothing?
Can you create the world of your dreams and trust life to provide the opportunities for financing when the timing is right?

Very quickly the project gathered speed, brought with it an intense learning process and put us in touch with people all over the world…

During this time Eduardo returned to university, continued to teach and perform tango, and realized his dream of creating and producing a tango show in Buenos Aires,
Kikki stayed to learn the language, integrate the culture and move deeper into observing and recording life and tango,

LOVE,PASSION, JOY, LIFE with RESPECT and FREEDOM for PEACE in the world,

Yours in love and beauty,

Eduardo Saucedo
and as always Kikki

EL CENTRO  2006

A lot has happened since the idea of a centre in
Buenos Aires emerged.  The perfect physical place
appeared – and disappeared before we could act.  Your
support – both in spirit and $$ – inspired and
motivated us to continue preparing and building on the
concept.

Eduardo stayed in Buenos Aires to study public
relations at university full time.  He continued to
teach group and private classes of tango, develop
choregraphies and perform and travelled when possible.

Kikki went to Buenos Aires and stayed to write,
learn the language and culture to communicate better,
to develop ideas, concepts and programs, to organize,
facilitate and co-ordinate.

A year of adjustment was successfully completed.
Meanwhile many dreams – not all – were becoming
realized  – in Buenos Aires and in various places
around the world.

A childhood dream of Eduardos to travel with his
mother brought us to Canada.  A tango teaching tour
connected him with friends, students and the creative
travelling life of tango after a year of intense
studies. It gave Gladis much pleasure to travel with
her son, seeing him work and getting to know people
and life in a different country and the opportunity
for Kikki to see her family in Canada.

Some of you came to visit Buenos Aires and Argentina
to pursue hobbies and interests, to dance in the
milongas and study tango, to combine travel with
professional studies….     Some of you have
travelled to Eduardos home and village, came with us
as we started to explore Argentina…….  some of you
are part of our family here in Buenos Aires and some
part of our international family around the world…

You took the opportunity to learn to dance tango with
Eduardo.  You know the passion he has for the dance,
the skill he has teaching it  and the joy he feels
connecting with people. You know his commitment to
positive values and how he motivates and inspires from
the heart.

This time has made it clear that to complete his
studies, continue with his group classes and practica,
long term students, private classes, develop
choregraphies and perform, travel and explore and
still stay healthy,

having a studio and office in the same place as living
quarters will make it easier and more efficient to
co-ordinate all the activities, stay in touch with
family and welcome friends, stay healthy and enjoy
life.

So as we prepare for the beginning of another year, we
have this idea, this concept of creating a place
together, based on trust and confidence – a business
proposition from the heart,  an investment in the art
and beauty of creativity –  where $$ will grow
with positive forces.

Can we do it ?!!!  We can do it !!!! Together we can
do it !!!  The time is now !!!

besos from Eduardo
and as always  Kikki
