Santiago Yanez grew up in Argentina and first became interested in tango as an adolescent where he was living around the corner from an outside milonga in Mendoza and it was there that he took his first classes. But before Santiago‚Äôs passion for tango would develop he was pursuing his other passions for travel and adventure. In 1999 he left Mendoza and headed north on his bicycle on a two year journey that took him to the tip of Alaska and then finally coming to settle in Vancouver. There feeling the nostalgia for his home he began to dance again and hasn’t stopped since.
