NaturalTango is proud to present:
Rino Fraina &
for their USA 2019 - 2020 Tour!
RINO and GRAZIELLA met in 2010 and they started dancing together at the end of the year with the clear aim to create a stable couple to consolidate their qualitative and personal growth in Tango. After dancing other dances like ballroom at a Professional level , they decided to dance Tango to enjoy of a greater (superior) interpretative freedom of music and movement. The discipline and training learned from other dances have constantly led them to deepen the basic technical elements and to research a defined and recognizable teaching method.
After a two years preparatory course of ballet, at the age of five, GRAZIELLA dedicated herself to synchronized swimming, winning numerous championships.
From the age of nine she started couple dances ( ballroom and LatinAmerican ) while she was still acting as a synchro trainer. She definitively abandoned it when she was 15 to follow her passion….dancing.
She discovered Tango when she was 17 and she started an passionate path that brought her to the Italian Argentine Dance Championship in only a year. She has been studying with Argentinian teachers since 2003 and she went for the very first time to Buenos Aires in 2007 (and she usually goes once a year) to improve her knowledge and ability. This led her to the prestigious final of World Championship of Tango in Buenos Aires in 2008.
RINO began dancing when he was 10 , specializing mainly in ballroom dances. He won his first Italian Championship in 1998 ,and from that moment on, his national andI International carreer went on. He competed in England, Austria, Belgium, Poland, Russia , Lithuania and Spain winning numerous competitions. He became a professional and also a Fids specialist , leaving contests to become a judge.
Exactly during a competition he met Graziella, creating a couple in life and then in Tango. His previous experiences allowed him, quickly, to refine his technique and to personalize it.
TOGETHER. Rino and Graziella have been teaching in several Italian Tango schools and they preside over En Tus Brazos association in Catania and Eboli (Salerno). Their training comes from several masters and dancers like Alejandro Arenas and Marisol Morales. They obviously keep on studying to deepen their knowledge thanks to special seminars hosted by Chicho Frumboli and Juana Sepulveda and Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne. As teachers , their goal is to deepen the technical evolution of Tango through lessons and practices giving the fundamentale tools to manage and create everyone’s Tango. They are organizers of events such as Catania Summer Tango Week and they have participated as teachers and performers at various national and international events such as “Rosario Tango Festival” Rosario-Argentina , , “Festivalito Tango Upload” Lisbon Portugal , “Tango Upload” Coimbra-Portugal , “Mediterranean Tango Cruise” , “Bunker Tango” Turin-Italy , as performers at “Tangart” Athens-Greece , “Boulder Tango Festival” Boulder-U.S.A. and some Argentinian Milongas as “Milonga 10 “ e “El Gardel de Medellin.
