Luna Palacios & Guillermo Cerneaz Biographies
Luna Palacios and Guillermo Cerneaz
Born in Buenos Aires, Luna Palacios is an authentic young milonguera, tango dancer, who learned tango from some of the most storied figures in Buenos Aires dance halls. But she started dancing tango almost by chance.
Until 2001, Luna was a salsa and swing dancer. She had won several salsa competitions in Buenos Aires and had danced all over the country. One day, her sister Verónica took her to a milonga, where, says Luna, she immediately fell in love: the dance, the music, the magic of that atmosphere was something she had never experienced, but it was the embrace that seduced her and won over her heart.
Though at first she had thought it would be almost impossible to accustom her salsa-trained feet to the demanding tango steps, she was lucky enough to have the opportunity to dance with some of the best milongueros and professional dancers in Buenos Aires from whom she learnt a lot.
Some of her formal teacher where: Veronica Palacios, Lucas Galera, Jose Garofalo ,Oliver Kolker, Carlos Gavito, Guillermo Cerneaz and Gabriel Misse, among others.
The greatest inspiration for her was her teacher and friend, the late Carlos Gavito. Shortly after they met, Carlos became Luna’s artistic mentor.
Given that Luna was always a very ductile and personal dancer, she became the favourite dancing partner of several great dancers: Lucas Galera, Oliver Kolker, “Flaco” Dany Garcia,Horacio Britos (aka: PIbe Avellaneda),Carlos Copello, Aoniken Quiroga, Paulo Bidart, Jorge Pahl , Octavio Fernandez to name some of them
