About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Silvia takes her students by the hand and accompanies them on a voyage of discovery through tango land. An inspiring, stimulating, step-by-step journey to self-confidence and comfort that will ultimately enable the tango dancer to fully express themselves in dance.

Using her structured and tailor-made teaching methodology developed over more than 20 years, she empowers her students to overcome their fears and achieve what they are looking for.

Silvia and her dance partners focus the lessons on teaching a solid technical foundation, posture, walking, hugging and musicality, so that a harmonic connection with the partner and the music arises that unleashes creativity, elegance and emotions.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Since I was 6 I have been developing, expressing and mastering the mechanics of the body movement. I competed as a rhythmic gymnast, studied ballet, modern and contemporary and performed with the Aleph and Il Gruppo Italiano dance companies in live concerts, TV shows and movies.

I discovered Argentine Tango in 2006. I immediately started an intensive learning path of the tango culture and its expressions, mostly fostered by my teacher Andrés Bezem and also with other renowned and outstanding names such as Alejandra Mantiñan, Sebastian Achaval, Roxana Suarez, Sebastian Arce , Juan Martin Carrara and Stefania Colina, among others.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Since 2009 I have been teaching tango across Europe and performing at competitions, milongas, festivals, theaters and TV movies. I am currently based in the Netherlands where I teach regular tango classes.

Hip Hop and Ragga Jam lessons. Everyone has an artistic potential, you just have to want to develop it.
I base my lessons on fun and step by step. Teaching dance is for me to support students in the perception of their bodies. My pedagogy consists in allowing them to feel their movement themselves. The dance class is a special moment, a time of discovery, of pleasure which, admittedly, requires rigor, precision, investment and involvement but also allows everyone to develop their creativity and their own expression in the world.

ORIENTAL DANCE PRIVATE CLASSES - Geneva and the Holy Land
Oriental dance is a dance of Egyptian origin, which includes many styles. Originally, it was a spontaneous and improvised dance, but today it is taught academically all over the world. It is traditionally practiced by women, who express by this art their femininity, their vitality, but also their feelings, joys and sorrows. In general, this dance is characterized by the dissociation of the parts of the body (isolations) that can move independently of one another. Oriental dance is as good with jerky rhythms as slow and fluid. Bellydance is not limited to movements of the pelvis: it solicits flexibility and tonicity of the bust, shoulders, arms, hands, pelvis and belly. It helps tone the thighs, relax the joints, develop the abdominals and maintain the back. Most of the work resides in the muscular contraction, this dance can be practiced at any age, in the respect of the limits of each dancer or dancer. The course begins with a joint and muscle warm-up, followed by technical work. The basic movements are then integrated into sequences that allow you to move in space and experience the pleasure of dancing, before ending with a session of relaxation.

Ballet class for children and for adults. Have you ever dreamed to be a swan?
I am a ballet teacher for children and for adults. Graduated in 2019 from Serge Lifar Kyiv Ballet Academy I continued my ballet path with Grand Kiev Ballet and Royal Russian Ballet and started to teach ballet. Ballet is a very beautiful graceful type of art and it brings not only beauty, but also strength of the whole body and correct posture. When you do ballet there is not a single muscle in the body that is not involved. Let"s start this journey together!

Hula Hoop group course for beginners and advanced
Small group course for beginners with previous experience and advanced! A maximum of 4 students take part. This hula hoop course only takes place on Mondays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. - if you don't have time, please contact us anyway and if there are enough inquiries, a second course can be arranged on a different date. Attention: only until sport can take place again! I therefore cannot recommend the 10-hour package - unfortunately, the decisions on measures cannot be foreseen that far. Hula Hoop is not only a children's toy, it is especially suitable for adults! It's a gentle creative workout. The focus is on creativity, tricks and dancing in such a way that the side effects - increasing flexibility and body definition - are only noticed afterwards. You don't even know what you can do with hula hoops? Incredibly much! From rolls, wedgies, wraps, escalators to isolations, throws, foot-hooping, acrobatics to doubles, multihooping and native american hoopdance, I can teach you everything possible and impossible ;-)

Body conditioning for dancers - a Russian developed and successfully proven method - group class
What was Mikhail Barishnikov, Rudolf Nureyev, Natalia Osipova, and all the other Russian dancers’ secret to success? The one thing they all have in common is their training in the Russian ballet method of Vaganova. This professional method has been developed over the decades to become the most effective method in the world. The grandeur of the legendary Russian Bolshoi and Marinskii theatres speak for themselves. For this reason, I have gone to Russia to study for my bachelors in this method at the University of Moscow, and together with my collective experience in teaching ballet, am waiting to train you to become the next ballet legend. WHAT DO CLASSES LOOK LIKE? Each lesson is 1 hour 30 minutes, the sweet spot between length of attention span, physical endurance span, and building stamina. Ballet classes are structured according to the Russian ballet method of Vaganova, and body conditioning classes include professionally developed exercises specifically for dancers. I customize lessons to work on what my students most need, and therefore weak spots are attended to until they are wiped out. Lessons are conducted online in the convenience of your own home, saving both time and transport costs. WILL YOU BENEFIT FROM THESE LESSONS? My lessons are for you if you any one of the following scenarios describes your situation: 1) YOU DO NOT ATTEND ANY OTHER BALLET CLASSES - classes include a full syllabus, examinations are optional, and you can therefore attend my online lessons as your only source of ballet. 2) YOU ALREADY ATTEND OTHER BALLET LESSONS - I also offer the option for you to take these classes as a supplementary addition to classes at your studio in order to boost your scores in exams and competitions, and improve your technique, strength, allegro, and stability in pirouettes, balance, and pointe. This gives you the chance of becoming the new class hero, and enjoy the freedom of dancing without worrying about stamina, faulty technique, low leg height, weak allegro, and gruesome posture. 3) YOU ARE A DANCER, BUT YOU DO NOT DO BALLET - my body conditioning classes are beneficial for dancers of all genres. It teaches complete control over the body, promoting stability, strength, leg height, good balance and stamina. WHAT LEVELS DO I TEACH? I currently teach beginner, intermediate and semi-advanced levels (RAD levels would translate as all levels up to Advanced 1), for children from age 10+ and adults. Although I am qualified to teach higher levels, I currently do not have time to choreograph full classes at such high intensity and complication. ABOUT DANÉ - I am an experienced ballet teacher who loves ballet, people and teaching. To make it more interesting, here is my experience starting now and going backward: Currently I am studying at the university of Moscow where I have been voted the best student of the institute by my lecturers, and have attained cum laude so far in all my subjects. I began studying for my bachelors in Moscow September 2020. I have 14 subjects including the Russian ballet method of Vaganova and several other dance styles, body conditioning for dancers, choreography, music and acting. Due to current events I study online from South Africa for now. In my free time I teach ballet and write scripts for productions, sometimes staging my choreography when time allows. Prior to this, I studied Russian for a year in Kazan, Russia (this is a requirement if you study choreography in Moscow). Before going to Russia I founded and directed my own ballet school in Johannesburg from 2017-2019, and staged 3 productions. During this time I trained with the Russian School of Ballet in South Africa, attained a distinction for my exam and took part in their production at the Roodepoort State Theatre. Before this I trained with the RAD with many distinctions up to Advanced 1, but changed to the Russian method just before taking my Advanced 2 exam (if you take classes with me you will understand why;)). Furthermore, I won countless gold, A+ and special awards in festivals, eisteddfods and competitions, several of them including my own choreography. I was part of a theatre group from 2016-2017, where I performed the lead role in the Roodepoort State Theatre. I have done ballet since 2003, and was schooled in an American syllabus from grade 1 to graduation.
