Artistic director of Easy Tango Itinerant Program.
She has been trained as a dancer and Tango teacher by master Diego López.
As a psychologist she provides the interdisciplinary approach to the Teaching Area and Healthy Tango, deepening her method on Emotional Education.
Andrea possesses a delicate style, a substantial stage presence and a permanent imprint, which only the kind of dancers with lineage have, leading with tango imprinted in her DNA.
With Diego they created a unique teaching technique, Easy Tango, and a couple style in which one can appreciate Andrea's contribution from her femininity, expressing her dancing emotions in a very moving way. Their complementing suggests that in this couple the whole Tango is condensed.
Andrea combines, in an harmonious way, the refined technique and the forceful expression, by leaving in the viewer permanent impressions, generating pleasure and the huge privilege of dreaming that any human movement can become art.
A tireless student of new trends, she is constantly learning new ways of female techniques of Tango which she provides students at Easy Tango School.
