Maria started dancing tango when she was 16. She took her first steps with Los Dinzel. Four years later she discovered dancing in the milonga, with its rituals and codes and a new stage in her training began.
She was head of the Department of “Estilo” at the Universidad del Tango de Buenos Aires”. Maria has been co-director of La Academia de Tango Milonguero since 2001.
María danced professionally with Carlos Gavito and appeared with him in various venues. Together they gave seminars in Buenos Aires, and participated in different tours and festivals around the world, including Western Europe, Japan and Russia.
With a background in anthropology, Maria’s didactic style is characterized by the continuous investigation of the milonguero language. She currently participates in workshops at international festivals in the USA, New Zealand and Europe.
