About me



About me

I'm from La PLata, Argentina, and live in Malmö since Summer 2013. 
I'm a member of Danscentrum Syd and 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.

My artistic interest:

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


Contemporary Dance means to me a way of processing my experience as a human being. In each creative process I confront my self with new aspects of my live and all my fears, desires, dreams, interrogants, becomes performances material. For that reason when I create a piece I aim to find its own movement vocabulary, exploring how to use the body, the space, the time, the energy. When I perform I find a kind character who relates to the audience in different ways each time, being more or less influenced by them, depending on which role the spectators occupies.

When I perform tango which is a specific dance style there is a code conformed by steps, figures, musicality and even some clishes related to the roles man and woman. The challenge is so to perform tango without losing my Contemporary Dance approach.

Dance is my passion and it's present in each day of my life. Along the years and as soon as I started to try to developed my career as a freelance artists I understood that to continue doing what I loved I needed to generate contexts to make it grow up. I learned from independent grupps from Argentina that the collaboration is the key to access to more opportunities. But in the last years I also understood that the opportunities many times have to be created also for us, the artists. For that reason I take initiatives as a organiser and coordinator of different activities.

I'm working to generate in Malmö crossdisciplinary experiences between dancers from different styles, musicians, and other scenic artists, to enriches our artistic work. I organised a training group for improvisation open to professional and amateurs. I do also works in collaboration with professionals from other disciplines such as teater and music. I organise projects to make dance accessible to diverse audiences.


Learning:

After secondary school I had many options to study in La Plata, universities city.
I started at the same time Psychology an Contemporary Dance at La Escuela de Danzas in 1995. The discovering of Contemporary Dance made that I decided to continue just with dance.

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

In 2002 I finished the school I continue learning other techniques as Eutonía.
During those years we hosted in Argentina guest teachers from Europe and then I started to discover the “new tendencies” in Contemporary Dance, specially those that uses floor work and have a physical theatre approach.

From 2011 to 2013 I lived in Brussels having an intensive training in Contemporary Dance.
Now days at Danscentrum Syd I have morning training based mostly in ballet, contemporary dance in terms of technique and improvisation, with local teachers and from abroad.

Pilates:

In 2006 I had my education as a Pilates instructor and started to work in 2007. Along all those years of teaching I learning by observing the results on my students. Adding my own touch to the classes I found in Pilates a training that give senourmes benefits to the practitioners, including myself. Bassicly the body awareness, the strength of he core, the use of the breathing, and the coordination are the points that I consider more important and effective. With advanced practitioners the fluidity, the memory, the challenge of changing dynamics gives another dimension to the experience.

Tango:

During different moment of my life I had tango lessons, in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Brussels. Until not much time ago tango was just a social dance but since 2015 I'm interested in to use it to explore communicational aspects and as a tool for creativity.

Teaching Methodology:

I started to teach dance the some of my sister’s friends when I was 20. 
Through practising movement techniques I had the sensation of having a key to access the subtil body knowledge and I was very motivated and curious about how to transmit what at this moment was learning. 

After those first teaching experiences I continue learning methodologies at the last years of my dance school. Those were enriching moments of talking, exchanges, reflections with my colleagues.

Now days I don’t have a setted teaching methodology because I adapt that to my current interest. My perspective about the use and the connection with the body changes from one moment to other and I allow that it affects what I teach and also how I teach. I choose different things to observe each time and I propose to others to change also their perspective.

As I work to very diverse groups of people in terms of ages, environment, those circunstances influence me. I work with Contemporary Dance, Pilates and Tango. But what doesn’t change is my internal compromise of being present with the people that I work with. To meet others in a studio is for me an opportunity to enrich myself as a human being, putting away bad days, transforming tiredness in creative energy, for me and for the group. For that reason I love to teach.
