According to the publicist pushing this book on every imagible forum:
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mauricio Castro is a renowned dancer and teacher of Argentine Tango and the founder of Tango Discovery. He created and developed a personal style of dancing and teaching tango in Buenos Aires and then, through Tango Discovery, he brought it to the rest of the world.

To his solid musical education at the prestigious Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA), he added contemporary dance and movement technique studies (Laban Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals and The Skinner Releasing Technique, among others). In addition, he also studied Human Sciences in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Design Human Engineering and Human Ecology.

The joining of these disciplines and influences allowed him to create his particular and unmistakable style, systematizing it into an innovative method to accelerate the process of learning to dance.

Breaking out from rigid sequences, his focus is to develop improvisation skills through a simple and dynamic technique where students discover not only a relaxed and released style, but also a new way of expressing and communicating with their bodies.

The synthesis of his method, recognized worldwide by hundred of dancers, is available not only by attending his classes but also in his books and cutting-edge multimedia CD-ROMs, available in several languages.
