In 2007 I had my first experience with Indian Classical Dance and I guess it was simply inevitable, something made sense in my brain and my body and I felt connected, full and free.
Slowly but surely I started a process in which dance became a healing tool capable of providing the balance between the mind and the body. Challenging as it was, dance became the centre of my day to day life, a source of passion and joy and the inspiration to constant evolution.

In 2008 I joined Güngur Indian Fine Arts Buenos Aires in 2008 and began my training under the guidance of Natalia Salgado in Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam. After moving to Scotland in 2015
I started to regularly travel to India in order to train with renowned Kishore & Padmavani Mosalikanti (Kuchipudi) as well as Viraja & Shiyamjit Kiran (Bharatanatyam).

In 2018 I started my training in Flamenco with Inma Montero from TuFlamenco and I am part of their performance group which debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2021.

To summarise my practice, on a weekly basis I continue to train under the guidance of my teachers in both Indian Dance and Flamenco and try to support these practice with other work like Yoga, at the same time I work as a teacher, performer and outreach instructor where dance is at the core of these activities.
