Globetrotting tango teachers and performers Aisha and Victor will be bringing their passion for dance to this year's Argentinian Tango and Argentinian Days festival at Brzeg Castle, southwestern Poland, June 19-23.

Victor hails from Buenos Aires. Aisha is Polish but has spent most of her life outside Poland. The couple live in Buenos Aires, where they run a dance studio and teach students from around the world. Each year they spend six months on a tango tour of Europe and North and South America.

Victor is an architect by profession who worked in a major office in Buenos Aires for 20 years before abandoning the day job to devote himself to tango. Aisha trained as a linguist, translator and teacher. Apart from Polish, she speaks English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Catalonian, Russian, Swedish and Spanish. She graduated from a music academy and plays several instruments, including the accordion. She is also a yoga instructor.

While in Europe, they will perform a piece entitled Tangomorphosis that uses a fusion of dance and music to tell the story of a Polish girl who transforms into a tango dancer.

After a vacation break in July, Victor and Aisha will return to Poland to take part in the International Contemporary Dance Workshops in Poznań Aug. 15- 23; the Argentinian Expo Warsaw; and workshops at Tomek Potocki's Tango Academy in Warsaw, Sept. 25-27.
