In my teenage years I fell in love with the temperament of Latin American dances and the soulful music. So I first danced salsa for years, until a tango show ignited a fire in me. After a year of tango classes, I was driven to Buenos Aires in 2014… Back in Switzerland, I missed the Latin American lifestyle. So I successfully focused on my career. I had the opportunity to travel through many latinamerican countries in that period, but that also left me no time or energy for anything else. What I was missing? This unique feeling of being able to express myself and feel free while dancing, this danced secret between a dancing couple in their connection, the embrace and energy…! It’s simply as Paulo Coelho said “When you dance you can enjoy the luxury of being you”. Now I am overjoyed to have left everything else behind me. Today I am the proud manager of La Pantera and with all my tropical heart involved – as manager, dancer and supporting teacher.
