Episode 77 of Joe’s Tango Podcast is now online!
My guest today is an Argentine Tango dancer and performer. She's also a choreographer, and an actress. She started dancing at the age of 5, and has a background in ballet, Israeli folk dancing, jazz, latin, and contemporary. At age 16, she performed at the Teatro San Martín, which is one of the most most prominent theaters in Argentina. She has performed in productions at the Spanish Repertory Theatre, and in New York, she was nominated for two ACE Awards for best dramatic actress. Over the years, she has appeared in a number of musicals, plays, films, and TV programs.
In 2009, she rediscovered her love of tango and is now based in San Diego, CA. She teaches tango classes several times a week, with a heavy focus on understanding body mechanics. She often teaches technique through the use of the Feldendkrais Method; the goal of which is to help her students gain more body awareness. Throughout the year, she also travels to teach at various festivals.
