Sophia Miniaeva & Kirill Miniaev

Sophia & Kirill fell for tango in late 2013, thanks to a happy accident. Looking to start a new couples activity, they stumbled in Allegro Ballroomin Overland Park, KS, and attended their first Argentine Tango class with Victor & Aksana Golub. Within a month they were hooked. Three months in, they were attending 3 classes a week, and wishing there were events happening every night. Since then, Sophia & Kirill have travelled around the US & Europe, attending Tango workshops, festivals, and milongas. Sophia & Kirill have studied with Victor & Aksana Golub, Nick Jones & Diana Cruz, Adam Hoopengardner & Ciko Tanik, Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda, Carlitos Espinoza & Noelia Hurtado, Pablo Rodriguez & Corina Herrera, Javier Rodriguez, Gustavo Naveira & Giselle Ann, Donato Juarez & Carolina del Rivero, Michael Nadtochi & Eleonora Kolganova, and many others.
In their dancing, Sophia & Kirill look to understand the minute nuances that make Tango work. They then spend countless hours polishing these details until they have been internalized on a subconscious level. At this point, these details are ready to be shared with the world through both performance and teaching others. In their classes, Sophia & Kirill look to help every student understand the essence of Tango, both the complex dance and the music, and to allow each student to create Tango for themselves.
