Bryndís (Iceland) and Hany (Austria) consider themselves classical tango dancers, with a strong physical and emotional connection in their dance. For them clarity in movement and musicality is essential as well as elegance, dynamic and a hint of humor. In their classes they work with the basic, repertoire, posture and connection, flow of the movement, musicality and of course the joy of dancing. Finding the possibilities within the capacity of the students is very important to them. Another motto they believe in is: Tango is challenging enough, let's laugh a bit and have fun.
Bryndís and Hany were educated in Buenos Aires by Argentine masters, e.g. Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne, Cecilia Gonzalez, Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli and many more. They have taught regular classes from beginners to master level, performed and organized tangoevents for many years in Reykjavík, Iceland. Since 2006 they have been frequently invited to teach and perform in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany. In January 2011 they moved to Copenhagen and teach regular classes at M2tango Studio.
This Austrian-Icelandic couple started the icelandic tango scene and founded the Tango Club Reykjavík in the year 2000. Today there are about 110 active dancers in Reykjavík, dancing 5 times a week in different locations.
