For us that likes tango...
Lovisa Curman, born in Stockholm Sweden 1982, has always been interested in people and cultures. Her strong interest for meeting people and seeing new places brought her to Buenos Aires 1999 where she encountered the Argentinean tango. She fell in love with the music and later on also with the dance. The Argentinean tango is the ultimate dance for her, where improvisation, communication, esthetics and musicality merge in the embrace of the dancing couple.
Lovisa has danced various other dances as part of her dance studies at Balettakademien in Stockholm as well as during dance pedagogic studies at the University of Dance and Circus (DOCH). She has travelled to Argentina, Berlin and other cities in order to learn from the great tango teachers, such as Gustavo Naviera, Chicho Frumboli, Sebastian Arce & Mariana Montes etc. She wants to be able to combine diferent tango styles and is constantly seeking development of her own movement and expression.
Lovisa is an active organizer, teacher and DJ in Sweden, with her base in Stockholm, and she is also engaged in social projects combining dance and community development. She is part of the crew of the tango organization Barra Querida and has also been active in Tangazo.
