M.A. DANCE - DANSPEDAGOG & DANSVETARE 

I have been teaching different social dances with a norm-critical gender/queer-pedagogic approach since 2010 - within popular adult education, feminist- and LGBTQ organizations & communities and cultural venues in Sweden, Denmark, France and Spain.
I discovered the Argentine tango in 2011 and had my tango training in Paris, Buenos Aires and Sweden with teachers such as Sandrine Navarro, Gisela Passi & Rodrigo Rufino, Brigitta Winkler, La Academia Tango Milonguero and DNI Tango Stockholm. Between 2014-2019 I was DJ'ing and organizing milongas, practicas and classes at Tango Queer Paris.
 

After studies in Fine Arts and Theatre and a Bachelor in Political Sociology, my passion for dance led me to obtain a Master of Arts degree in Dance from Université Paris 8, where I specialized in feminist- and critical dance pedagogy and tango.
Since my graduation in 2018 I continue to study dance (creative/contemporary, improvisation, choreography) and dance didactics at the Stockholm University of the Arts (DOCH). 

Based in Stockholm since 2019, I give both-role tango classes as well as classes in leading for followers and following for leaders in collaboration with Malin Backström. In 2020 I co-initiated Milonga Queerida at Bagarmossens Folkets Hus (more info at www.tangoqueerida.se).
In addition to tango, I am since 2019 also teaching various dance styles to children and young people, nowadays at the Stockholm Community School of Music and Arts (Kulturskolan).
   
I have been continously practicing different dance techniques, as well as other artistic forms since I was a child. I have 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.
