Mauro Caiazza began studying in the folk and tango schools of Perez, Argentina, at a young age. At 12 he was selected to represent the Argentine Republic in a major dance competition in New York City. After discovering his passion for tango, Mauro incorporated it into his study of jazz, salsa, contemporary dance and air acrobatics. At 19 he earned his teaching degree of dance from the Instituto del Cimarron. His talent has been showcased in tours with El Chucaro Ballet, Tangorama, Madero Tango and the Cosquin National Festival. He has worked with such greats as Soledad Pastorutti, Silvio Soldán, Mora Godoy and Mercedes Sosa.
Mauro is now taking his talents to the big screen—next month he begins shooting a project with acclaimed director Vincent Ward. Within the tango world, Mauro is often referred to as one of the few tango greats of this generation. There simply are no words to describe his baile. He is a true tango master.
