About Marcos and Ruta:
Marcos Questas, born and raised in Buenos Aires, and Ruta Maria, of Lithuanian / American heritage, have dedicated their life and passion to the art, education and preservation of Argentine Tango. Marcos, having danced since the young age of 6, learned his first tango steps from his grandfather – a true milonguero himself. Now a third generation dancer of tango, he has had an astounding career performing on the stage of famed tango houses El Viejo Almacen, Argentina Tango & Pampa, the national tango TV show Grandes Valores del Tango and was on full staff of Argentina’s Presidential Committee of Entertainment performing for official presidential events and dignitaries visiting Buenos Aires.
Ruta Maria, a distinguished dancer in the dance world, “fell” into classical ballet after she stumbled as a child running to the arms of her mother. After graduating from Interlochen Arts Academy, she is more graceful on the stage these days, having danced and choreographed for many renowned companies as a principle dancer including: Nevada Ballet Theater, Bolshoi’s first International Exchange, Jacksonville Ballet, Ballet West and Cirque du Soleil’s Mystere. Tango entered her life unexpectantly and has been her only focus since. Developing into a tango artist, and an instructor, has been an unimaginable reward and she continues to teach and spread this art with technical precision and delight.
