Dancer, choreographer and teacher.
A multifaceted and sensitive artist, known around the world through her extensive and intensive path.
She studied at Escuela Nacional de Arte Dramático, and worked for major companies as a performer and choreographer.
She created a unique technique called TTC (Conceptual Tango Technology) which has allowed other dancers to find a way to further develop their own tango, understanding the workings of opposing energies in the body, using this internal understanding, to achieve a greater connection.
With this work she needed to create a space that represents and is itself the container, of the ideas that emerged from within, and in 2005 DNI Tango opened its doors – a tango school, company and store with its own identity.
In DNI Tango, professional staff (chosen by her) and outstanding teachers in various disciplines (Yoga, Contemporary Dance, Contact improvisation, Rhythm, Ballet, Theatre and others) synthesize and frame, the development of her philosophy about tango.
Today DNI Tango, is recognized around the world, for its excellent teaching staff and for the group shows it has created (La Colección, Los tangos de una vida, Arealidades, La Musa del Capricho).
– About Me –
For a short period of time every year I travel to festivals and workshops in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, to maintain contact with other artists and reconnect with students .
I'm dedicating a lot of time to choreographing for several professional dance couples, this way I can create for other artists that inspire me. I am therefore able contribute from my vision, helping to bring out the best in people, proposing clear paths for creation.
Also this allows me to be in the school and continue working with the Company every morning , as well as doing my own training and group classes that I give regularly.
(Thursday 19 to 21 Hs TTC Class, Technical Training Thursday from 7 to 9 pm TTC, and Saturdays at 2 pm Tango Classes Level 6/7 with Adrian Ferreyra).
