Tino & Susan

Constantino Bastidas and Susan Reynolds, founders of Tiempo de Tango, are known throughout the Washington metropolitan area for the style and passion of their Argentine tango.  Their choreography and performance in the 1997 Library of Congress presentation “The Golden Age of Tango” marked the beginning of their collaboration. Over the past few years Tiempo de Tango has appeared with musicians such as Alborado, Quintango, Musica Aperta, Tango Reo, and both the Fairfax Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony to bring a variety of tango productions to the metropolitan area and beyond.  In 2001 they were awarded a commission to create “Piolin: Tanguero Soñador”  for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as part of Performing Arts for Everyone and the Millennium Stage.  “Piolin” and “Desde la Orilla”, productions which each drew finalist nominations for Metropolitan DC Dance Awards, were performed at Dance Place. Most recently Constantino and Susan created and performed a history of tango through dance for the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore and “Tango: The Eternal Seduction” a revue in song and dance for the Millennium Stage. They teach and perform in a wide variety of venues throughout the metropolitan area. tiempodetango@mac.com
