In 2003 Tango Paradiso first invited dancers to perform with them for the 2003 BEMAC Valley Fiesta in Brisbane, and so was born the Tango Paradiso Dancers. They continued to perfrom with us at many Woodford Folk Festivals, BEMAC events and lunchtime concerts for the Brisbane City Council as well our first CD launch at the Irish Club in Brisbane. The founding members were Rosemary & Greg Ensby, Alan & Carmel Hunter, Trevor Peach, Arno King & Tanya Teatini Climeo, Judy Cook, John & Cheryl Lowry,  later joined by many others including Damian Thompson & Julianne Martens.
