Actress | Dancer | DJ | Teacher
Raffaella is an actress and a dancer. Her first meeting with Tango occured in Paris in the year 2000. She danced on stage for the first time in 2009. At this time she discovered Contact Dance. Very fast, a connection is made: both dances complement one another and she then specializes in Contact Tango.
With her background in contemporary dance and theater, she developed the Tango Free Style: where tango is considered freely, with an original twist, where codes are challenged with a game of going back and forth between shape to destructuring. Searching your own movement, with autonomy and enjoyment. This is the basics of her teaching, aiming to allow each dancer to develop their dance in a personal, deep and poetic way.
Although often on the road for international festivals and marathons, Raffaella is also a Neotango DJ, a teacher and performer in Paris where she is the organizer of the Paris Neolonga.
