Before they started dancing tango they were successful in competitive Latin American and Ballroom dancing.

In 2011 they performed in the highly successful and popular theatre production ‘Midnight Tango’ which toured the UK, winning great acclaim and subsequent live cinema screening and DVD release in UK.

They have been regularly invited to perform tango exhibitions in the popular and respected milonga – ‘La Baldosa’ in Buenos Aires, and have also performed at Milonga Parakultural in Salon Canning, and in the Milonga de Los Domingos at El Beso. They are one of the very first Polish tango couples to have the honour of dancing Argentine Tango performances in the most famous tango venues in Buenos Aires.
