    “Peace is our original state.” —Lao Tzu

    I am a lover of life and an experimenter in the laboratory of the universe. I'm on a mission to heal human beings by helping them connect with themselves and grow. Tango clarifies our energetic focus into a lens through which we see life with truth. It is also meditative form of communal bonding and a healing power for society as well as the individual.

     

    I am on a journey of growth and exploration, and have shared that journey with many maestros in Buenos Aires, the US, and Moscow. Some of my most influential teachers have been Sebastián Arce, Ariadna Naveira and Fernando Sanchez, Samantha Dispari and Santiago Fina, Albano Goldenberg, Liz and Yannick Vannhove, Jorge Torres and María Blanco, and Eugenia Parrilla and Yanick Wyler.

     

    I believe in cross-training, and learn about my embodied self through yoga, Gyrotonics, the Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, pranayama, and every other somatic game in town. I love playing with other dances, from swing to flamenco to Haitian snake dances, and have a background in karate and jiu-jitsu. I am a CA-licensed bodyworker, Reiki Master, and massage therapist. I am also a classically trained fine artist and musician.

    "Dance is the hidden language of the soul." —Martha Graham

    Before you embrace others, you must first embrace yourself. I teach tango from an exploratory viewpoint of self-discovery. I value play, somatic awakening, and energetic grounding and focus. I believe that good technique is an ongoing journey of finding sustainable ease and comfort in your own body and life.

     

    I am available for group classes and private lessons in the Bay Area. I recently taught the University of Washington Tango Club.

  • DJ

    Let's make beautiful music together.

    Please message me to dj your next milonga.

    I love dj'ing milongas and private events. Designing an evening of music is like crafting a delicious menu that takes dancers on a journey of seduction, discovery, and ultimate satiety.

     

    Some of my favourite artists are Nelly Omar, Roberto Grela, Hugo Díaz, Lidia Borda, Miguel Caló, Lucio Demare, and, of course, Carlos Gardel.
