She is a writer and teacher of tango and literature, and received her B.A. from the University of Buenos Aires, specializing in gender studies. She has published three books of fiction (Al borde del Tapiz, El Molino and La fe) as well as other writings included in anthologies. She edited the collection “Las Antiguas,” published by Buena Vista, dedicated to reviving interest in the works of historic women authors of Argentina. She is the author of the essay “Queer Tango,” published on the web in 2006 and cited or reproduced in many magazines  and books throughout the world. She studied with tango masters in a range of styles and trained in a variety of the most traditional milongas of Buenos Aires, expanding her technique of tango salón, and tango nuevo. Drawing upon her experience in traditional tango, she focused her attention on the possibilities for changing the roles of partners within the dance itself. This approach allowed her to explore the dynamics of equal communication between dance partners, and inspired a series of new seminars, prácticas and milongas beginning in 2005 (Milonga de Mujeres, El Desvío, Prácticas Tango Queer). Currently, she teaches tango and is the producer of the Tango Queer Milonga of Buenos Aires as well as other events and festivities. She was invited to teach at the International Queer Tango Festival of Hamburg in 2006 and at the International Queer Tango Festival of Copenhagen in 2009. In 2011 she served as a guest teacher and dancer at the First International Queer Tango Festival of Berlin. She has also offered tango workshops in Stockholm, Zurich, Marseille, Nice, Le Hague, Preston, Brighton and London. /
