About Silvia Mezzasoma, dancer and teacher of Argentine Tango

Silvia Mezzasoma
Idea Tango Leiden
Performer and teacher of Argentine Tango, my approach to the dance is marked by my dual character.

On one side my logical, well-structured mind set, further enhanced by my scientific studies, offers me a thorough understanding of the mechanics of movement. This translates into an effective teaching methodology and in an elegant accurate dance.
On the other hand, my emotional and passionate nature gives my classes an enjoyable taste and allows me to deeply feel the intensity of the music, the vibrating energy of the tango embrace and the synergy with my partner.

Since I was 6 I have been working on body movements and expressions. I competed for 10 years as a rhythmic gymnast and was a finalist at the national championships. I studied ballet, modern and contemporary dance for more than 20 years and I performed with the Aleph and Il Gruppo Italiano dance companies in theatres, TV movies, shows, private and business events.
I came to Argentine Tango almost by chance in 2006, but I immediately started an intensive learning path of the tango culture and its expressions, mostly fostered by my teacher Andrés Bezem and by other outstanding Argentine teachers like Alejandra Mantiñan, Sebastian Achaval, Roxana Suarez, Sebastian Arce, Juan Martin Carrara and Stefania Colina, among others.

Since 2009 I have been teaching tango across Europe and performing in milongas, festivals, theatres and TV shows. I am currently based in the Netherlands where I teach regular tango classes together with Diego Blanco and Roberto Rizzo.
