Together, Leonardo and Olga’s productions have been featured at the Teatro Colón Opera House, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and at the Latin GRAMMY Awards Live Show, following a double Latin GRAMMY Award nomination in 2012.
During their residency, Leonardo and Olga will work closely with MPAP, and in particular the Dance Education program, to bring their unique interpretation and performance of Tango to the Steinhardt community. This close collaboration is a highlight of the NYU Steinhardt Dean’s Scholars-in-Residence program, which launched in 2018 with the goal of welcoming distinguished academics, artists, advocates, and other thought leaders to the NYU Steinhardt community.
“We want to share our expertise, our passion and our knowledge, our belief that generosity and solidarity make us richer and that the most exciting, innovative, and forward-thinking ideas are propelled by freedom and born at the crossroads of cultures and in between definitions,” Leonardo and Olga said.
On September 29th, Leonardo and Olga will perform a ten-minute repertoire at a Scholars-in-Residence welcome event. In addition to this event, they will also perform at Dance Education's 90th anniversary Distinguished Faculty Concert in November, and host a Tango music and dance workshop for students and faculty in the Spring.
