Rodrigo “DJ Charrua” Saraibe, originally from Uruguay, studied sound and light engineering in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Rodrigo has been working as a sound engineer, DJ, and stage manager since 1995, and has ample experience as a promoter of rock and tango events and stage in Buenos Aires, and worked in Miami for various local bands and TV shows as a music designer. Rodrigo has resided in Chicago since 2002 where he has been working in the integration of audio and visual arts using his sound and light design skills. As a native Uruguayan, Rodrigo began discovering his origins by exploring tango music. His passion for tango music has lead him to acquire an extensively impressive collection of music. He has DJ'ed in some of the most prominent Tango Millongas across the US.
Rod and Jenny have been dancing together since 2009 - they believe that the connection, musicality, and technique are the keys to fully appreciate the beauty of Tango. In their classes they want to concentrate on how to be comfortable inside the embrace, based on the logic and naturalness of the movement. They travel all around the U.S. and as well as abroad (Vancouver, Victoria, Mexico City, Cancun, Poland, India, etc…) to perform and share their tango knowledge at festivals and weekend workshops. Their infectious energy and love of the dance have created a large following of students in Chicago and the surrounding area.
