CHOREOGRAPHER - DANCER -PROFESSOR
Valeria is a wide-ranging innovator who uses her tango roots to reimagine new possibilities of partnering. She is an Awarded choreographer born in Argentina and based in New York who choreographed for Broadway, films, plays, circus and created her own shows. She is an NYU Tisch Tango Professor, a Resident Fellow at Center for Ballet and The Arts, NYU and a Research Associate at Partnering Lab, Harvard University.
VALETANGO COMPANY strips Argentine tango to its bare bones, focusing on the dynamic interplay of lead and follow co-creation as the source of a new aesthetic that highlights non-traditional stories. Our shows focus, with humor and wit, on gender dynamics of the social dance floor and the conflict created by power and desire.

Stage presence is innate: Either you have it or you don't. Valeria Solomonoff has it.
