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


「瑪勒沃斯」(Malevos) 字源自於 淪法多語 (Lunfardo),是十九世紀末在布宜諾斯艾利斯的人們發展出的方言,被認為是探戈的語言。Malevos 此字具有很強的阿根廷探戈根源,並出現在許多探戈歌詞之中;是那些經常出入在如 La Boca 等探戈街區 ,經常在酒吧和探戈舞會裡往返的圍事或保標,他們總是優雅打扮的,靈魂中充滿了探戈,酒精和女人。

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.

the Guest Masters


Javier Rodriguez

is one of the most influential Argentine Tango teachers in the world, highly sought after in international festivals and workshops, one of the judge of the World Tango Championship for the final round every year. He is no stranger to the Asian tango scene, having made his first visit here in 2003 and is one of the key maestros in both the Taipei Tango Festival and Seoul Tango Festival. Together with his late partner, the divine Andrea Misse, he has played a huge role in cultivating the traditional tango environment as we see today in many Asian cities, introducing the cabeceo and the codigos of the milongas, and nurturing some of the best dancers in the region. He is known for his elegant and musical dancing, as well as his ability to make students feel tango in a more profound way. Many have emerged from his classes feeling inspired and changed, both technically and mentally. Javier gives workshop in Hong Kong every November.


Sebastian Missé & Andrea Reyero

are a rare species in the Tango world, being dancers who grew up with tango from an early age, during a time when the greatest tango dancers from the golden age of tango still graced the milongas. They were among a very small group of children during that time who learnt directly from the legendary tango figures, and have inherited from them the techniques and knowledge that have made them one of the very few dancers of their generation who are able to master the dance at such a high level. Sebastian is from the famous Missé tango family. His greatest influence was from Migueland Osvaldo Zotto, and one of the greatest tango dancers and innovators in history, Antonio Todaro. Sebastian met Andrea Reyero at the age of 14, who was already an accomplished tanguera, having learnt from celebrated salon dancers like Alberto Villarrazo, "Pupy" Castello, "Toto" Faraldo and others. They have danced and taught together for over 20 years, and are now one of the most acclaimed and reputable Argentine Tango dancers and teachers in the world. They come to give workshop in Hong Kong every July.


初秋的週日夜

一次跳舞中美好的記憶

展開了追尋探戈之路


從台北到香港
從香港到上海, 北京
再到首爾, 雪梨, 莫斯科
那是在地球的彼端
布宜諾斯艾利斯的 美好空氣裡
有著滋養世代探戈人的靈魂


從舞步到舞姿
再從穿著到品味
原來探戈 不只是心中的悸動
而是曲曲述說著 每個獨一無二的靈魂


這是一個最好版本的妳
聞聲起舞 隨樂而行
走停當下 都要時刻優雅
而每一次的錯步挽回
正是一起共舞的永恆瞬間
最最完美的証明
