I saw them dancing regularly at Club Bailable Juvenil on Corrientes when the Saturday night milonga of Stella and Ricardo had the best dancers of Buenos Aires.

Carlos grew up in the barrio of Chacarita.  He and Elvira have been together for 16 years.  They danced in clubs Huracán, Premier, Buenos Aires, Estudiantes, Palacio Rivadavia as well as the downtown confiterias Montecarlo, San Souci, La Nobel, and Domino.  Their favorite orchestras are Osvaldo Pugliese, Carlos Di Sarli, and Miguel Calo.

They live in Palermo and occasionally go to Centro Region Leonesa to dance on Friday.  Elvira once owned an apartment across the street from where I live today.
