Stéphanie Fesneau & Fausto Carpino
STÉPHANIE and FAUSTO are professional dancers, teachers and DJ-s of Argentine Tango.
FAUSTO CARPINO (Syracuse, Sicily, Italy) had his first encounter with dance at the age of six. For twelve years he has studied, practiced and participated in many Ballroom Dance competitions, regional and national, where he has always been among the first places.
At the age of sixteen, thanks to his sister Barbara (also a dancer) and her partner Claudio, who had recently discovered Argentine tango, Fausto had his first contact with tango, and remained fascinated. After many years of Ballroom training, he learnt very fast and shortly thereafter Barbara, Claudio and Fausto decided to open the first school of Argentine tango in Syracuse, Paladanze. Fausto himself became one of the main teachers of Paladanze for several years. Since 2004 he teaches and continues to develop his dance as a full time job.
Besides being a successfull tango dancer, Fausto is also a well-known tango DJ, but lately, because of lack of time, he does not practise this activity very often. From 2008 onwards he has been DJ'ing at important festivals, marathons and milongas in Europe, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Canada and Argentina.
From 2006 to 2012 he was a member of the organisation of the Syracuse International Tango Festival.
At the end of 2006 Fausto met Veronica Toumanova with whom he collaborated and made a dancing couple from 2007 to 2011. Later, for a short period, he collaborated with Anna Solakius and Maria Filali.
Since July 2011, he has been in a fix dancing couple with Stéphanie Fesneau.
For STÉPHANIE FESNEAU (Paris, France) dance and theater have always been present in her life since she was a child. At the age of sixteen she discovered tango, thanks to a friend of her, and from that moment on, tango has been always more and more present in her life, until it became its essential part.
In a short time she started to teach in one of the most successful schools in Warsaw, Zlota Milonga, where she taught until 2009, before returning to Paris, her place of birth, where she taught in one of the oldest schools and
milongas of the city, Le Chantier. Afterwards, in 2011, she moved to Florence, where she taught for two years at the ‘Pablo’ school.
In her short but intense tango career she has collaborated with several dancers in various schools in Warsaw, Paris and Florence. Since July 2011 she has been in a fix dancing couple with Fausto Carpino.
Fausto and Stéphanie make a dance couple since July 2011. After an intense period of preparation, they began to participate in various tango events as teachers. So far they have taught in more than 16 different countries and 45 cities. Their lessons are focused on how to propose oneself to the partner in a comfortable way within the embrace, based on logic and natural movements. They believe that connection, musicality and technique are the keys to full appreciation of the beauty of tango.
