tried all sorts of dancing, such as ballroom, bellydance and medieval dance, before finding a home in tango in 2002 with Komala and Stefan. Teaching the Estudiantes with Pieter, she hopes to spread the joy of dancing to others. The rhythmical percussion of a candombe always gets her running for the dance floor.
