Soledad started dancing Ballet at the early age of 5, and she continued her education in Flamenco, jazz and many other dances until she was 13 years old. In 2002 she started dancing Tango and trained intensely. By 2005 she was already teaching in one of the most prestigious dance schools/Milongas of Argentina called La Viruta, and also other schools like Tango Brujo, La Maleva. She started traveling to teach abroad in 2007. And that year, she also discovered Swing Dancing.
Since she is the only professional female dancer of both Tango and Swing, she travels worldwide to teach both styles and share both cultures with the world.

Born and raised in Armenia, Yuliana Basmajyan immigrated to the US in her early adolescent years. For many years she tested her skills in different dance forms, including modern, jazz, flamenco, and extensive training in Salsa.

She studied under world-class dancers such as Natalia Hills, Romina Levin, Andrea Misse, and Geraldine Rojas to name a few. While living the dream, she performed in tango shows and concerts that took place in Nokia theatre, Wilshire Ebell theatre, Florentine Gardens and many high-end banquet halls around CA and Mexico.
