About Federico Suarez
Federico has the Tango running in his blood. Born in Buenos Aires, raised in Germany and now living in the Netherlands, Federico is an international citizen. He started dancing at the age of 16 and hasn’t stopped since. Besides Tango, Federico has danced and performed Ballroom, Latin, Breakdance and Hiphop.
He has been learning Tango from some of the most successful dancers of our time, among them Sebastian Arce, Sebastian Achaval, Roxana Suarez, Juan Martin Carrara, Estefania Colina, Fabian Peralta and Josephina Bermudez.
Federico has been teaching Tango in Leiden since 2015, together with Silvia Mezzasoma. They perform regularly together in national and international events. In the years 2017 and 2018, they reached the Semifinals at the UK European Tango Championship in the category Pista.
As a teacher, Federico is known for his humor, empathy and infinite patience. He guides his students so they truly understand the technique of the steps in his classes – while having lots of fun! He is always thriving to improve himself and helping others to do so.
As a dancer, his biggest strength is his strong musicality and rhythm, which he developed in more than 16 years of dancing to many kinds of music. He enjoys expressing the flow, energy and complex rhythms of the traditional orchestras in his Tango.
When he’s not dancing Tango, Federico spends his time communicating, doing voice overs or translations.
Silvia and Federico
Together, Silvia and Federico make a great and very professional team in supporting and encouraging their students, always keeping them challenged and interested, while making sure that nobody forgets to have lots of fun!
After taking their classes, you will become a confident dancer with a diverse toolbox of moves. To make this possible, Silvia and Federico strongly focus on teaching very solid technical basics. Posture, walking, embrace and musicality are the cornerstones of connecting with your partner and the music in a harmonic way and you will get a strong feel for each of them.
Their work is characterized by a continuous research on the sources and principles of body movement. Their Motto is that working on the details and clear communication is the key to a comfortable and well connected dance.
