Steven Thull, Yulia Kriskovets, Maral Bezircioglu, Rainier Pereira and Siva Krishnamoorthy
Steven is a tango dancer, DJ, and photographer. He lives in Rochester, NY, where he has been organizing milongas and teaching classes since 2017. As a tango photographer, he is known for capturing the special moments that happen on the dancefloor. As a DJ, his focus is to provide the right music to create those moments.
Steven approaches every milonga with an attentive eye on the ronda, a keen ear for the music, a large collection of quality recordings, and a passion to put it all together for the dancers.
Yulia has been a tango DJ for over 15 years, both locally in Washington D.C. and in various tango events throughout the U.S.
She loves to contrast the music texture and emotional charge in a way that drives the crowd to dance all night. She aims to get to the trance-like state where dancers feel safe and inspired. Most recently, Yulia is inspired by the idea of the wave from the 5 Rhythms dance practice and incorporates it in her tango DJing.
Maral's passion for Tango Dj’ing comes from her passion for Music. She has always been into music
since she was 5. In 10 years that she has been playing she has always been on the side of more ‘classical eras and orchestras’.
She loves to improvise! A night with surprises makes her feel very excited and improvisation
keeps her energy and excitement up. This is what she loves most about DJ’ing.
Her style of DJ’ing in 3 words; Rythmic, Flowing and Romantic! The most important thing for her is the ‘energy’ in people, in their eyes, in their dance, on the dance floor, in the venue and even
outside the venue. She tries to achieve this by trying to choose the best cortinas for each night.
Her three favorite orchestras: Anibal Troilo, Juan D’arienzo and Pedro Laurenz
