Artistic Director and Choreographer
“I discovered tango when I was 16 and it has been at the center of my life ever since. Tango made me discover friends, lovers, cities, and the depth of the music and the poetry of the street.
I try to understand the intensity of the present moment that brings about the magic of tango.
With more than 15 years of performances and classes all over the world, I got to know many schools and tango clubs where thousands of people of different cultures and backgrounds come together. One thing unifies us: tango transformed us.
The Social Tango Project is a tribute to each dancer.
I am currently interested in developing new projects with artists from different disciplines to bring tango, in all of its forms, to a broader audience.
I am passionate about new people discovering such a language so mysterious and yet so accessible.”
