Sandra Danced with her former partner from 2006-2016 and is currently dancing with Jorge Lopez. Argentine Tango came into her life at a time when she was seeking something deeper in her dancing. In 2009 she decided to dedícate herself full time to the Tango.
She has studied with Carlos y Rosa Pérez, Gabriel Angio y Natalia Games, Nathalia Hills, Daniel and Cristina Nacucchio, Gustavo Naveira, Ruben and Sabrina Veliz and Martin Ojeda.

Her trajectory has been written about in several famous international magazines such as “Dance International”.
Many people ask Sandra why she loves Tango, her answer would be Tango is probably the only dance that cannot be truly felt and transmitted unless it is 100 % authentic that is why she has chosen it and it has chosen her.
Jorge López was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He started his journey with Argentine Tango at age 11 with Cristina Pugni and Mario Morales.
