M.A. - DANSPEDAGOG & DANSVETARE


I hold a Bachelor degree in Political Science and a Master of Arts degree in Dance from Paris 8 University, where I specialized in norm-critical and feminist dance pedagogy in the field of Argentine tango. Currently I continue to study dance (creative/contemporary, improvisation & choreography) and dance didactics at the Stockholm University of the Arts (Dans och Cirkushögskolan) and at the Stockholm University College of Music Education (Stockholms Musikpedagogiska Institut).
I teach Argentine tango within adult educational associations (ABF & Bilda), and various dance styles for children and youth with emphasis on improvisation and creative/contemporary dance - within primary school and at the Stockholm Community School of Music and Arts (Kulturskolan). 

I started teaching different social dances with a gender/queer pedagogic approach in 2010 within popular education, feminist- & LGBTQ community contexts in Sweden - such as at the Swedish Federation for LGBTQI Rights (RFSL) and at the feminist course- & guesthouse Kvinnohöjden.

Through my interdisciplinary background in between the Social Sciences and the Arts, I have developed a special interest in participative methods and queer & gender-theoretical perspectives in dance(education), as well as in researching dance as a tool for both personal and social transformation.

I study the Argentine tango since 2011 and had my tango training mainly in Paris but also in Sweden and Buenos Aires - with teachers such as Sandrine Navarro, Gisela Passi & Rodrigo Rufino, Brigitta Winkler, La Academia Tango Milonguero & DNI Tango Stockholm. Between 2014-2019 I was active in the collective Tango Queer Paris - mainly as DJ and organizer of queer tango classes, practicas and milongas.
Since 2019 I give both-role tango classes, as well as classes in leading for followers and following for leaders in collaboration with Malin Backström. In 2020 I co-initiated Milonga Queerida at Bagarmossens Folkets Hus (more info at www.tangoqueerer.se).
