Malevos Tango School was founded to create a place in Hong Kong solely for Tango to share the love and passion for this Argentine cultural treasure. Now it is one of the most professional and famous Tango Schools in Hong Kong.

The word "Malevos" has very strong Argentine Tango roots, and appears in many letras (lyrics) of Tango. "Malevos" is Lunfardo (an old dialect developed in the lower classes of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century, and is considered the language of Tango), usually referred to the men who hung out in the old Tango neighborhoods such as La Boca, always perfectly dressed, well poised, usually loners dwelling in the streets, bars and milongas, their souls filled with tango, alcohol and women.

 

The Funder and the Masters


Sandra Mok 
was introduced to Argentine Tango in 2004 while studying at the University of Chicago, USA. Musically trained since she was young, while being both a swimmer and an athlete, Argentine Tango came naturally to her. Her passion for the dance led her to visit Buenos Aires 4 times since 2008, each visit bringing her new insights, feelings and understanding to the dance. She has studied intensively with Argentine tango legends, Javier Rodriguez y Andrea Misse, and Sebastian Misse and Andrea Reyero. She has frequently been invited to perform in Taipei, Hong Kong, Seoul, Sydney and Shanghai. She co-founded "Las Chinitas" and "La Bruja" in Hong Kong respectively to promote tango and its culture through organizing workshops and milongas. In February 2010, she quit her job as a corporate banker to devote herself full-time for tango. In the same year she also launched her own handmade tango clothing line, "Sandrini" that has grown to be very popular among tangueras in Asia.


Felipe Hsieh 
began to study tango in 2002; he is attracted depthly by the tango dance, music and culture, with following the greatest contemporary Argentine tango masters - Javier Rodriguez, Andrea Misse, Sebastian Misse, Andrea Rerero. He combines the spirit of the arious tango masters and creat a set of high efficient teaching system -- the cornerstone of Malevos Tango School. He has taught or performed in Seoul (Korea), Sydney (Australia), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Moscow (Russia), Macau, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei and various cities in Taiwan. Felipe also has performed tango in TV shows in Taiwan and acts as the dance director for music videos. Also by his engineering and industrial design background, he launches his own tango shoes brand "FELIPE.H" in 2014. Also he creates the Tango Ideogram Writing System to record tango sequences in his book "INITIAL TANGO", published in 2018.
