M.A. DANCE - DANSVETARE & DANSPEDAGOG

I have a Master of Arts degree in Dance from Université Paris 8, with feminist- and critical dance pedagogy and argentine tango as my areas of specialization.
Right now I continue my education at Stockholm University College of Music Education (SMI) and Stockholm University of the Arts (DOCH), where I study creative/contemporary dance,  improvisation, choreography and dance didactics. 

I also have a bachelor in political science with specialization in political sociology and discrimination. My background in between the arts and social sciences has led me to develop a special interest in community arts, democratic- and participatory learning / processes and feminist practices in relation to dance.  

I've been teaching different couple dances with a norm-critical gender/queer-pedagogic approach since 2010. I've been working within popular adult education, feminist- and LGBTQ organizations & communities and cultural venues in Sweden, Denmark, France and Spain.

Since more recently I also teach various dance styles to children and young people.

In the last years I’ve been DJ'ing and organizing milongas, practicas and classes at Tango Queer Paris, founded by Miranda Lindelöw in 2011. Currently I'm co-organizing Milonga Queerida at Bagarmossens Folkets Hus. I had my tango training in Paris, Buenos Aires and Sweden with teachers such as Sandrine Navarro, Gisela Passi & Rodrigo Rufino, Maria Filali, Brigitta Winkler, Ana-Maria Shapira and currently Sara Westin & Juan Pablo Canavire (DNI Tango Stockholm).
  
I've been continously practicing different dance techniques, as well as other artistic forms since I was a child. I've also been exploring various somatic disciplines such as yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Body-Mind Centering etc. I bring this investigation in body awareness and movement analysis into my dancing and teaching.
