I was born in Brasov, the heart of Romania and now I live in Bucharest. I met with tango as a child, when my grandfather – who used to take ballroom dance lessons – tried to teach me, besides social and table manners, tango and waltz. And then I forgot…
I met tango, in its “argentine form” again in 2007. And I’ve been living its universe in all the forms it can surprise me with. The experience is ever changing and always rewarding. My purpose is to touch as many lives as I can with the experience of tango, for tango is a life experience itself.
I’ve studied with many international maestros (Carlos y Rosa Perez, Ronen Khayat & Maya Schwartz, Ezequiel Paludi & Geraldine Rojas, Rodrigo Fonti & Solange Capperon, Carlos Espinoza & Noelia Hurtado etc). I consider myself a permanent student in tango, but I also gave back from what I’ve learned by teaching (1 year at Studio Tango Nada Mas Brasov, 2 years at my project-school Escuela Principal de Tango, Bucharest and a few times abroad, too, in Varna and Sofia).
I also had the opportunity to learn about tango music and DJ-ing from Marcelo Rojas – no.3 tDJ in the world and the designated official tDJ in Buenos Aires. DJ-ing is another form I choose to express my tango in.
I’ve been writing tango related essays and tango events reviews since 2010. I like reaching people from all over the world with the essence of this beautiful experience of tango.
My dream is to travel this world and see it through eyes of the tanguera that I’ve become.

Ever since our first encounter – we were introduced by some frisky fellow, with no idea what he was about to stir… – I knew that the chills and the silly smile on my face, caused by the sound … Read More
