About me

About me

I'm from La Plata, Argentina, and live in Malmö since 2013. 

I'm a member of Danscentrum Syd and Nya Rörelsen (Rörelsen-koreografer i Skåne). I teach Contemporary Dance since 2000 and Pilates since 2007. I have taught Dance and Pilates workshops in different institutions of Malmö and Lund such as Medborgarskolan, Karavan, Malmö Dance Center, Danscentrum Syd, Drömmarnas Hus. 

I dance Tango Argentino and I organise different activities in which I use tango as a technique, expressive language, way of communication, and inspiration to the creation.


After high school I had many options to study in La Plata, a university city. I began at the same time Psychology and Contemporary Dance in The School of Dances in 1995. The discovery of the Contemporary Dance caused that it decided to continue with the dance.

All those years in that school (1995-2002) were creative years, discovering, creating and connecting with people that today are still friends, collaborators, inspiration, support.

In 2002 I finished school. I kept learning other techniques like Eutonia.
Under disse årene received invited teachers from Europe and later. I began to discover the "new trends" in Contemporary Dance, especially those that use floor work and have a physical theater approach.

From 2011 to 2013 I lived in Brussels with intensive training in contemporary dance. Nowdays I train at Danscentrum Syd. I have a morning training based mainly on ballet, contemporary dance in terms of technique and improvisation, with local and international teachers.


I have experience as a dancer since 2000, creating my own pieces, working in collective creations and directed by others.

Along the yars Contemporary Dance become a way of processing my experiences and express thoughts, desires, emotions, dreams, interrogants, and that becomes material performances. So whenever it's moment to create a piece my goal is to find my own movement vocabulary or the volcabulary that this piece needs. I find useful to go always to the basis and take decisions concerning the use the space, time, energy and  muscular tonus, according to my way of understanding Laban's movement analysis. In the last years become more necesary create a kind of character that is related to the audience in different ways, being more or less influenced by them, playing sometimes with a fourth wall and sometimes finding fure intaction with tha audience sucha as I perform my clown character.

When I perform tango, which is a specific traditional dance style form Argentina, I use all its components such as steps, figures, musicality, leader rol and follower role, among others. I find interesting and challeging  to perform tango without losing my Contemporary dance mindset which means that I can not accept eassily already fixed codes wihtout questioning whats means what I do.


Dance ocupes a big space in my life. The word dance includes now more elements than before. A big part is my practice, my training in dance techniques, more or less conservatives such as ballet, more or less avant garde as performance. Throughout the years and as soon as I started trying to develop my career as an independent artist I understod that if I wated to continue doing what I liked I needed to generate contexts to make it grow. I learned from teachers, colleagues ad friends from independent dance in Argentina that working in cooperation is a great key to access more opportunities. For that reason I take initiatives as organizer and coordinator in different activities that brings together other artists but also new audiences. I am working to generate in Malmö interdisciplinary experiences between dancers of different styles, musicians and other artists, to enrich our artistic work. I organized a training group for improvisation open to professionals and amateurs. I also work in collaboration with professionals from other disciplines, such as theater and music. I organize projects to make the dance accessible to several audiences.


In 2006, I had my education as a Pilates instructor and started working in 2007. Throughout all those years of teaching I learned by observing the results in my students. Adding my own touch to the classes I found in Pilates a training that offers huge benefits to the practitioners. Basically the the body awareness, the strength of the core, the breathing and coordination are the points that I consider most important and effective focus on. 


During different moments I had tango classes in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Brussels and Malmö. Until recently tango was only a social dance but since 2015 I am interested in using it to explore communicational aspects and as a tool for creativity.


I started teaching some of my sister's friends to dance when I was 20 years old. Through the practice of movement techniques I had the feeling of having a key to access the knowledge of the subtle body and I was very motivated and curious about how to convey what I was currently learning.
