I’m a writer and making tango my ink pad
Dancing and intentional movement brings joy and focus to my life. Beyond techniques, I let my body tell its own stories. As a creative writer and designer, I tell stories on the web, on paper, and sometimes I scribble random lines on the dance floor.
How did I get here?
Spirituality, writing and cultivating beauty have been threads of my life, and Dance in Conversation, in many ways, puts them all, and my teachers, together.
I woke up one morning inspired to start a new creative project.
It was November 2019 and I was hungry for expression, using a notepad for personal notes. At that time I was attending a weekly 5Rhythms practice in London and feeling compelled to share all the findings and thoughts inspired by freely moving my body in a crowd of dancers.
A month before, I had met Ieva during an event she was running related to tango and relationships. The concepts she shared that day connected strongly with my own reflections.
It was a no-brainer. I didn’t want to start anything on my own, so I called her straight away to suggest a meeting, thinking, well, at the end, when you dance tango, you cannot do it alone.
Very soon, out of sharing the same values and views, Ieva and I became creative partners, and Dance in Conversation was born. The rest is an ongoing joyful adventure.
On another level, the Moon and its magic, and being close to nature and its teachings is the current state of affairs I thank Tilda Storm for. Without her, I don’t know where I would be. Also, the encouragement and love of Miryam Audiffred have no pair so far.
Julio Cortazar is still my inspiration for going about my life and my writings with total freedom, joy and invention. There are many men and women who I feel deep gratitude for and consider also my teachers. It’s a long list… I only mention the poetry of St. John of the Cross, a constant fountain of beauty and inspiration. Mooji, for me, is also a regular reference of what matters at any given moment.
