M.A. DANCE - DANSPEDAGOG & DANSVETARE 

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 specialisation. 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 specialisation 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, participatory learning processes and feminist practices in relation to dance. 

I've 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. Since more recently I also teach various dance styles to children and young people, today at the Stockholm Community School of Music and Arts (Kulturskolan). 

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, founded by Miranda Lindelöw in 2011. Currently I'm co-organizing Milonga Queerida at Bagarmossens Folkets Hus.
   
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.
