Synopsis


At the age of 14 he took his first steps in tango, when he was still practiced among men by pure trial and error.

Partner and friend of other great masters of the dance like Gavito and Antonio Todaro, traveled by Europe, the United States and Latin America giving classes and exhibitions of tango lounge and milonga with "traspié".

Throughout his career, he formed several dance couples of great current recognition. With a charismatic personality and "bubbly as champagne", Héctor Chidíchimo is the undisputed axis of Gricel, an emblematic milonga of Buenos Aires that he himself founded, and the protagonist of the first documentary produced by The Argentine Tango Society.
