Diego Di Falco & Carolina Zokalski
At the age of 20 Diego & Carolina joined the original cast of the show FOREVER TANGO, becoming the youngest tango dancers in the history of American musical theater on Broadway. They toured with the show in the United States, Europe and Canada for over 4 years. The couple was nominated for a Tony award for ”Best Choreography” and the artistic image of Diego Di Falco was used in all the show’s promotional materials, including the major billboards in Times Square. Carolina & Diego have since performed in more than thirty cities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Israel, and Japan.
Diego began to dance at the age of four. Tango Masters, ANTONIO TODARO, PUPI CASTELLO, MIGUEL BALMACEDA, PEPITO AVELLANEDA and JUAN CARLOS COPES, guided him, nurturing his natural gifts from a very early age. With his unique creativity, sensitivity, and tremendous dedication, he has achieved world renown as a master dancer and instructor of the tango.
Carolina’s artistry has also reached great heights. As a young girl, she receiver a scholarship from Juan Carlos Copes to perform with other young artists and with ROBERT DUVAL in the documentary TANGO! Produced by National Geographic. In 1991 she was invited to join the NATIONAL FOLKLORIC BALLET OF ARGENTINA.
More recently, the couple participated as principal dancers and choreographers in the show TANGO MAGIC for PBS. They also performed a smaller version of the show at Carnegie Hall in 2000 and 2001, and at Umbria Jazz Festival in Orvieto, Italy, sharing the stage with Pablo Ziegler and the quintet for New Tango, Joe Lovano, Paquito de Rivera, Richard Galiano, Gidon Kremer and Gary Burton.
They currently reside in the United States and continue to earn international acclaim for their elegant, charismatic and technically demanding performances, as well as their wide-ranging program of tango instruction. They have sold more than 7000 instructional videos of their series of 7, between 2000 and 2004.
