ABOUT MY TEACHER

Being my Lifetime Mentor since1960, Juan Carlos Copes was an amazing human being, an incomparable Teacher and an incredible Mentor. Brighter with his wisdom, undoubtedly generous, He was, He still is, and always will be supremely "The Tanguero.”

 

My Mentor is GONE. Like he used to say: Ive, let’s Dance El Tango Rioplatense! Death can take away a person but never his Presence...IS

GRAN MASTER
