About Silvia Mezzasoma
Since she was 6, Silvia Mezzasoma has been working on body movements and expressions, competing for 10 years in rhythmic gymnastic and studying ballet, modern and contemporary dance for more than 15 years with some of the most renowned dancers in Europe and US.
In 2006 she came to Argentine Tango almost by chance, but she immediately started an intensive learning path of the tango culture and its expressions, mostly fostered by her teacher Andrés Bezem (Buenos Aires) and by other big Argentine teachers like Alejandra Mantiñan, Sebastian Achaval, Roxana Suarez, Sebastian Arce, Chicho Frumboli, Juana Sepulveda, Gustavo Naveira.
Her approach to Tango is marked by her dual character: on one side her logical mind set allows her a thorough understanding of the mechanic of movement, on the other hand her passionate nature brings her to deeply feel the intensity of the music, the energy of the tango embrace and the synergy with her partner.
Since 2009 Silvia has been teaching tango across Europe and performing in milongas, festivals, theatres and TV shows.
She speaks Italian, English and French.
Her favorite Tango is Fueron tres años from Héctor Varela.
Silvia and Federico
They met in Summer 2015 in the Netherlands and soon decided to start teaching Argentine tango together.
Silvia and Federico make a great and very professional team in supporting and encouraging their students, individually and as a group, while always keeping them challenged and interested. Their work is characterized by a continuous research on the sources and principles of body movement.
