Guillermina Quiroga began her career as a ballet dancer, having performed in such important works as Carmina Burana, Coppelia, Principe Igor, Aida, Don Quixote, and others.  In 1988 she entered the world of the milongas in Buenos Aires, becoming the partner of choice of the seasoned milongueros, particularly Puppy Castello.


A year later she was awarded the coveted Hugo del Carril first-place trophy in the first edition of the prestigious Tango tournament sponsored by the municipality of Buenos Aires.  Thus began her professional career as a tango dancer, a career that earned her soloist and prima ballerina billing with the Julio Iglesias world tour; the orchestras of John Mauceri, Luis Bacalov, Mariano Mores, Beba Pugliese, Orlando Trípodi, Juan José Mossalini, and Color Tango; and the critically acclaimed shows Tango x 2, Tango Argentino, and Luis Bravo's Forever Tango and Malambo.


She choreographer "Libertango" for the 1997 ice skating world champions Gritsuk-Platov, who won the gold medal in Nagano, Japan, a year later.  She also choreographed "Fantasía de Tango" for Cassano Dancing in 1997, "El Choclo" for the Japanese Ballet Johnies, "Oblivion" for Tango Magic and various compositions for the Julio Iglesias world tour in 1997-99.

In another facet of her career, Guillermina has been featured on the silver screen in Naked Tango, Oratorio a Gardel, Funes Un Gran Amor, Después de la Tormenta, Tango, Marie Galant and Assassination Tango in Buenos Aires.  She recently made Hollywood debut as an actress and choreographer in Valentina's Tango.

 

Combining her talent as a dancer, teacher, choreographer and actress, she has produced her own show, Tango, Historias Breves (formerly Los Tangos de la Cabala) where the mystic and mystery of the Tango, the enigma of human relations and the magic of the movies interweave and intertwine on stage.
