Ana has been a tango dancer and teacher for the last eight years, complementing these activities with the study of music. This insight gives her an accurate understanding of the tango world, including knowledge of the venues for traditional tango, modern tango, and the current recovery of the original music and stylistic forms. She has also studied philosophy and has a degree in filmmaking. All of these interests converge in Ana's passion for the development of tango as a cultural expression.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Teresa developed her passion for dance, foreign languages, and art at an early age. In 2001 she moved to New York to study at the Juilliard School and in 2005 she graduated with a BFA in dance. An interest in different cultures and an eagerness to grow as an artist prompted her to move to Europe, where, for seven years, she worked as a dancer in companies in Germany and Italy. During this time she had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and learned to speak German, Italian, and French, in addition to her native Spanish and English. Back in Argentina, she teaches contemporary dance classes and seminars, and her curiosity and interest in learning led to an MA in administration of cultural and creative organizations. She is thrilled to work with Context, embarking on this new adventure that will enable her to share her knowledge and passion for art, life, and culture in the marvelous city of Buenos Aires.

Besides languages and acting, she also has a passion for Argentine social culture, such as the art of dining and Tango. Salome loves helping visitors learn about her adopted city's culture and its diversity, in addition to showing them an insider's view of its cafés, restaurants, theaters, and Tango bars.
