ROLE: Tanguera Follower
LOCATION: United Kingdom
DANCING SINCE: 2013
I have always loved Tango music and over the years went to theatres to watch it danced and played whenever, wherever I could. Then one day I had a chance to learn and my journey began. I have spent most of my life riding horses, playing the piano and studying Wing Chun. Tango brings a whole new dimension to these disciplines. It has really confronted me on a personal level and presented some unexpected psychological challenges along the way. The real hook for me is discovering just how powerful responsive communication through instinct can be. Its fascinating. My joy in Tango is exploring this, teaching myself how to trust my instinct, and my body the technique to express my emotion for the music through dance and with my partner. The more I dance, the more I learn.
