“Tango has provoked and continues to provoke in me intense emotions not always describable or explainable with words. I asked myself: why? As a dance therapist I wanted to add new tools to my work and to encourage their use.”
The cultural roots and formal structures of tango can make it a complex experience, not only on a physical level but also on a psychic one. For this reason I returned to study the roots of this dance. During my stay in Argentina in 2010 and 2011, I engaged deeply in the study of tango and worked as a dance therapist in several institutions including Brecha, Institute for Dance Therapy and CETBA University of Tango.
I was able to find many answers to my questions and uncertainties with respect to the therapeutic application of tango thanks to my encounter with the tango master Rodolfo Dinzel, with whom I built a valuable exchange of experiences, theories, methods of analysis and dance techniques. The psychophysical development of children and early childhood movement patterns provide the basis for the study of the therapeutic effects of tango. I continue to develop these foundations and impulses in seminars and training.
