Our teachers – Judit & Lucas
“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change”
Our passion is Argentine Tango. Our aim is to make you experience the pleasure of dancing.
With more than 20 years of trajectory, we do our best that our students live the beauty of dancing day today, in all our classes.
Our (short) story
2014 was the year when Lucas and Judit met and had their first but definitely not last dance together in Buenos Aires. By that year, he had 22 years of experience in tango and Judit had been dancing for 14 years. They were coming from two very different backgrounds – Lucas was born in Argentina and trained by the most renowned masters (most importantly Mingo and Esther Pugliese, Gustavo Naveira and Mariano Chicho Frúmboli) and Judit was born in Budapest and had a strong classical dance background. Yet they both had the same passion for tango and decided to work together to transmit the spirit and knowledge accumulated by the vibrant energy born between them.
After just a couple of months of working together, they already performed in various milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires (as El Yeite Tango Festival and the prestigious C.I.T.A). They spend the greatest part of the year in Budapest where they have regular courses and from there they have the possibility to travel on the weekends to different cities in Europe where they perform and teach.
Budapest is one of Europe’s great cultural capitals.
Over the past few decades, Budapest has re-emerged as one of the continent’s iconic cities. Split by the Danube many bridges connect the two parts. Meet your guide at your hotel and begin the program in Pest.
Drive along the elegant Andrássy Avenue, the “Champs-Élysées” of Budapest. Continue to Heroes’ Square, representing 1,000 years of Hungarian history. Going through the historical Jewish district admire the neology synagogue. Across the river, explore the more traditional Buda side of the city. Visit the Citadel on top of Gellert Hill and pulsate together with the city from the most iconic viewpoint. Arriving at the Castle District up on the hilltop, enjoy the panoramic view of the city from the Fishermen’s Bastion and Matthias Church (the coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs). Returning to your hotel driving along the riverbank you can take pictures of the beautiful Hungarian Parliament.
Walking tour in the city centre
Budapest always was a beautiful city but the real revival of the capital started after the political systemic change. Explore Budapest’s hidden gems by walking around the Jewish quarter with its triangle of the extraordinary synagogues and Andrássy Avenue.
From the Jewish quarter, we will walk to Andrássy Avenue, which is famous for its architecture and high fashion shops. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a little time in one of the most famous cafés in Budapest.
Budapest by boat
Budapest dazzles at night, so get a romantic new perspective on the Hungarian capital with this popular evening cruise. Glide down the Danube River past illuminated landmarks like the impressive Parliament Building, sparkling bridges, lively Pest promenade, and Buda Castle, illuminated Liberty statue atop the Gellért Hill and many more…Kick off the festive, one and a half-hour-long voyage in a panorama boat with a welcome drink of sparkling wine and live music and enjoy the 4-course gourmet Hungarian food.
The original „Grand Budapest Hotel” Indulge yourself in the Gellért Thermal Bath
Have you seen the movie „The Budapest Grand Budapest Hotel” starring Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody? The hotel was based on Hotel Gellért standing at the Buda side of the Danube embankment, at the Liberty Bridge. The Gellért is the most grandiose of all the baths in Budapest.
The Gellert Bath and Hotel, built about a century ago, is a very special attraction in Art Nouveau style with its indoor and outdoor swimming pools, wave bath, Jacuzzi and sunbathing terrace.
The medicinal bath complex decorated with beautiful Zsolnay tiles has a complex physical therapy department and inhalation centre. The quality of the thermal water used for the treatments, that’s contained in the pools, is the envy of other medical spa hotels. The curative effect of the water sourced from the natural springs of Gellért Hill is due to its high calcium, magnesium, hydrogen carbonate, alkali, chloride, sulphate and fluorine content. It’s not surprising, therefore, that the Gellért is famous as a medicinal spa not just in Budapest but around the world!
The extraordinary elegance of Budapest’s New York Cafe
Step inside the New York Café, and you may find yourself wondering if you’ve accidentally entered the Hungarian equivalent to the Sistine Chapel.
Built in Italian Renaissance style, with sparkling chandeliers dangling from high ceilings adorned by spectacular frescoes, it’s one of the oldest cafes in Budapest, dating back 125 years.
It looks more like a lavish palace than a place to grab a slice of cake and a coffee.
The menu is made up of Hungary’s most traditional desserts, including around 16 cakes, but of course, it’s not the cuisine that everyone comes here for — it’s the magnificent setting.
Valentines' Day Tango Show - Argentine Tango Dance Theater
„Love when two people are searching for each other. Meeting of two souls, where respect, attention, devotion, attunement, and trust are essential. Tango is a dance of two souls. When that happens in the present, the two souls will merge into one. During the performance, we show different manifestations of love through the steps of the tango.”
László Budai world tango champion, internationally renowned dance teacher and the Argentine Tango Theatre.
