Ezgi Turmus studied tango in Istanbul University Dance Studio in 2004. At that time she worked with many different international tango teachers. She has always been interested in both roles of tango and she has performed in many organisations. After graduation she returned to Samsun in Turkey where she currently resides. Here she founded her own tango community, TangoSam, and started to teach tango to students of all levels. Soon after Ezgi travelled to Buenos Aires and again continued to improve her tango skills, working with some of the best teachers in the world. She is a renowned teacher in her own community and throughout Europe. During 2022 and 2023 she will be teaching at festivals all over Europe (see her webpage), and her workshops are described as exciting and fun.
Ezgi Sarıkaya started to tango with TangoSam in 2012. She became an assistant, and now Ezgi & Ezgi teach and dance together in their school. In 2017 they decided to become dance partners for the Istanbul Mundial de Baile competition as a queer couple. They competed in the final and were placed 8th, which is quite a considerable achievement at that level of performance.
Ezgi & Ezgi continue to teach tango and perform all over Europe at prestigious events. We are sure you will enjoy their contribution to our Festival in 2023.
