Pablo Inza (Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a dancer, choreographer, stage director and tango teacher. He is considered by many to be one of the present day tango scene’s most influential figures and has won respect worldwide for his innovative and creative style. Pablo’s personal style is rich in contrasting dynamics and playful musicality. Frequently invited to some of the largest tango festivals in Europe and North America, Pablo has been teaching and performing around the world since 1999. An excellent teacher with a great capacity for analysis and an innate sense of musicality, Pablo’s classes are popular amongst dancers of all levels. 
With a rich background in contemporary dance, artistic performance and direction, he started dancing tango in 1992 with both amateur milongueros as well as renowned maestros. He participated as dancer and choreographer in many tango shows in Argentina and also internationally. Since 1999 he has been invited to teach and perform in the most prestigious festivals. As stage director he created “Radio Cabulero”(presented in Bergen International Festival in 2002, Norway) “El arte de amar” (Tangomagia VI 2003, Holland). In Buenos Aires he did “El camion” (2001-02); “Matambre” (2003), “Metronomo” (2004), “Living” (2008) and “En el abrazo”(2012). Between 2004 and 2009 he was the producer and artistic director of Cambalache (a festival based on a fusion of tango, theater and contemporary dance).
