About your Hostesses

16042023-_MG_7281_edited.jpg

Veronika and Diana first met in 2012, when Veronika invited Diana and her then partner, Nick Jones, to teach in her hometown in Massachusetts.

 

A bundle of nerves, as it was her first time organizing, Veronika went a little over the top and turned what could have been just a couple of workshops into a weekend full of milongas and other festivities, featuring Nick and Diana.

 

To all of their surprise, the event was a huge success.

 

After this first experience together, Diana invited Veronika to help her and Nick organize their signature event, the NaturalTango festival in Denver, Colorado.
