A native of Argentina, Valeria is a highly regarded teacher, with twenty five years of experience teaching tango at university level as well as at festivals and studios internationally. Her understanding of lead-follow improvisation had her working, since 2008, as adjunct tango professor at NYU Tisch, New Studio on Broadway and becoming Faculty at Juilliard Drama in 2022 where she teaches partnering techniques drawn from tango, modern dance, contact improvisation, and theater. Valeria is available for private instruction and professional coaching.
In 2020, influenced by the restriction of the pandemic and her last Broadway experience of choreographing Evita, Valeria developed Broadway Tango, a choreographic style adapted for individual training that makes the tango moves accessible without compromissing the essence of the traditional form.
