Silvia Mezzasoma

Teacher Argentine Tango at Alma de Tango

Performer and teacher of Argentine Tango, Silvia’s approach to the dance is marked by her dual character.
On one side her logical, well-structured mind set, further enhanced by her scientific studies, allows her a thorough understanding of the mechanics of movement. This translates into a technical and methodical way of teaching, as well as in an elegant and accurate dance.
On the other hand, her emotional and passionate nature makes her classes enjoyable and helps her to deeply feel the intensity of the music, the energy of the tango embrace and the synergy with her partner.
Since she was 6 she has been working on body movements and expressions. She competed for 10 years as a rhythmic gymnast, she studied ballet, modern and contemporary dance for more than 20 years and she trained with some of the most renowned dancers in Europe and US. She performed with the Aleph and Il Gruppo Italiano dance companies in theatres, TV movies and shows.
Silvia came to Argentine Tango almost by chance in 2006, but immediately started an intensive learning path of the tango culture and its expressions, mostly fostered by her teacher Andrés Bezem and by other outstanding Argentine teachers like Alejandra Mantiñan, Sebastian Achaval, Roxana Suarez, Sebastian Arce, Pablo Veron, Chico Frumboli, Juana Sepulveda, Gustavo Naveira.
Since 2009 she has been teaching tango across Europe and performing in milongas, festivals, theatres and TV shows. Currently she is based in the Netherlands where she teaches and performs with Federico Suarez.
Together, Silvia and Federico make a great and very professional team in supporting and encouraging their students, individually and as a group, while always keeping them challenged and interested. Their work is characterized by a continuous research on the sources and principles of body movement. Silvia and Federico’s Motto is that working on the details and clear communication is the key to a comfortable and well connected dance.
