I work constantly and obsessively on the basics of tango, the embrace and the walk. This path leads to true dancing and the most authentic elegant, organic movements.
I believe that reinforcing the basic structure of the dance and then consciously working at the edge of it, opens the door to creativity, fun and art. So my aim is to improvise in my dancing but I use the same system also when I create choreographies.
Tango… I am always searching for it.
Tango… siempre lo vado buscando.

I really enjoy venturing into the nerdiest spaces of my imagination, searching for tango and technique. What I adore most in tango is how my body feels when moving to the music together with another dancer. Whether it is musicality, ease, intensity, expression or beauty that is the most present quality in a dancer, it impresses me to sense it in him or her, and it inspires me to meet them with my own.

I started dancing tango in 2010 when I was living in Argentina and since then I’m stuck. I studied tango during my three years in Argentina until I came back to Stockholm where I discovered the great tango scene here. For me dancing tango is a feeling you express, I totally go into myselft and focus on the connection between me and my dance partner. The music, the embrace and the connection make tango the most beautiful dance, once you start you will never stop!
I started dancing at the age of 5 and I have since then tried a variety of dances at different schools amongst others Balettakademin, Lasse Khülers Danceschool and Bounce Summer camp. A little more than three years ago I was introduced to tango and since then tango has been a big part of my life. During 2012 I was living in Buenos Aires to explore more about this mystical dance and trained for several teachers. I have also travelled and visited festivals and marathons in different parts of Europe since.
For me tango is so many things, it is impossible to describe in sentences and part of me resists to put words on it. Because that is one of many beauties with tango, there are no need for words. And still you can know someone or yourself completely at that moment, just by dancing together, letting the music and the energy of your partner guide you. And in every dance and partner, there is the possibility to let go a little more, maybe one day even surrender.
