We like to present to you the people behind all these wagons on our TangoTrain, to give you a feel of who we are, and what we have to offer!

|Age & Sebastián
This dj is an enthusiastic maratonero. He spends many weekends dancing and dj-ing outside Amsterdam, but once a month he is in his hometown to organize the classical salon el Cielo. Age’s project on retuning tangos to their correct speed and pitch led to more awareness of this problem among djs and cooperation with TangoTunes (see and listen http://tangodjduo.nl/). With the Matinées Age is happy to contribute to the marathon feel of this event: non-stop dancing and having a dinner together.
|Koos, Koosje, Wim and Martin
They are the hosts of Los Locos, a milonga which has been organized in the center of Amsterdam every Tuesday for the last 6 years. Well over 300 amazing tango nights of high quality dj-ing, milonguero dancing and good company.
The home of many tango globetrotters, Los Locos is used to seeing international guests and excited to contribute to the TangoTrain experience!
She is a visual artist and a dancer. The culture and artistic quality of Argentine Tango inspired her to create 7 dance productions; 16 international Tangomagia festivals; and Amsterdam milongas such as De Boksschool and salon De Duif.
As a teacher, amongst others she initiated the TangoN project (tango for young people) in collaboration with the Amsterdam University.
She has been at the heart of Amsterdam tango for over 20 years, promoting, teaching, inviting high profile milonguero maestros and organising the La Bruja milonga since 2007.
