Women’s History Month: Maria Inés Bogado

Maria Inés Bogado began dancing at the age of 12 and earned a degree in Argentine Folklore at the Centro Polivalente de Arte de Ezeiza. Tango entered her life in 1994 just as the dance began to rise globally. She confessed that, at the recommendation of friends, she began training at the Sunderland Club práctica during a period in which she’d grown bored with her own dancing. There she met Sebastián Jiminez in 2008 — Maria Inés had just graduated college, and Sebastián was only 15 years old. In 2010, after training together for two years under Rosa Forte and Carlos Pérez, they won the Tango Mundial (Salón category). Maria Inés’ dancing is characterized by classic polish and a touch of brass. She continues to teach and perform internationally. Here’s Maria Inés and Sebastián interpreting De Angelis’ Pobre Flor with Carlos Dante and Julio Martel on vocals. #womenshistorymonth
