Agustina Videla and Claudio Asprea return to San Luis Obispo for a sixth time. They have been dance partners since 1997, and have performed at many major tango events in Buenos Aires and appeared several times on Argentine Television. They have also been part of numerous tango shows on multiple continents.

Agustina and Claudio have toured Europe several times, performing and teaching in Austria, France, Germany, Luxemboug, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Russia as well as a large number of cities in the United States including New York, Washington, San Francisco, Miami, and Portland.
