All workshops are for self exploration of the dance. We will review the choreography but the main idea is to work closer to discover your own movement.
During the Peña we will have the opportunity to dance others dances as well, the idea is to have a space where to practice once a month all what we have learnt.
About the Teacher:
"Born in Argentina, Pamela Roldán began her career at the age of six in Los Polvorines, a small town located in Buenos Aires province, dancing and performing with Ballet del Sur folk group in the local scene. She studied to become a teacher of Argentine Folklore and Tango at Instituto Folklórico Argentino and at Universidad Nacional de las Artes (formerly IUNA) in Buenos Aires. She has also studied many other dance styles such as Salsa, Arabian, Afro, Indian, contemporary and swing dance, among other health related therapies like Yoga and Ayurveda. This wide knowledge of the physical and emotional side of dance and movement allows her to work in deep connection with the students needs, balancing theoretical with expressive content.
She currently lives in Tampere, Finland. She has been teaching Argentine Folkloric Dances in Buenos Aires and Europe for about nine years. Her workshops are dynamic and entertaining, often leaving people deeply inspired by her grace and passion."
