ROSALIA DELFINA started dancing Tango in 2000, aside of her professional education in classical Ballet, contemporary dance and dance pedagogics.
She lived in Buenos Aires from 2009 until 2011, where she consolidated her style and technique and started working professionally with Tango.
Her collaboration with Silvio Grand brought her even deeper insights in the “yeites” (secrets) of argentine Tango.
Due to her broad education and wide experience, she can transmit in classes and rehearsals a deep knowledge of the human body and its movement-mechanics. Her dance is elegant but powerful, combining traditional lines with innovating dynamics.
Among others she performed in Sr. Tango with the Company Vertigo Tango (Tango&Danza Aerea), in the role of the “Lujanera” in the Show Rojotango (based on Borges' short story “Hombre de la Esquina Rosada) with Opera Singer Erwin Schrott, an in numerous Concerts with international Orchestras throughout Europe. In 2012 she created the Musical Play “The day you will love me, Malena...” together with Silvio Grand.
In 2009 she founded together with Cecilia Loffredo the company “Quiero Ser Agua” and since then realizes own productions, where the vocabulary of argentine Tango and contemporary dance appear to give birth to a poetical new language, creating images full of playfulness, sensuality, humor and intensity.
