Hi! I am Katia. Welcome to My Website!
I am originally from South America and have been dancing since I am 5 years old! I currently live in San Diego and specialize in Argentine Tango. I am an Argentine Tango Instructor, Perfomer & Adjudicator. I teach all styles of Tango including salon (tango de pista), stage, milonguero, fantasia, milonga & vals. I have studied Tango extensively for more than a decade and have been trained by many of the most respected tango maestros in Argentina, Italy & the United States.
I am also a Ballroom & Latin Dance Instructor and teach American Rhythm and many club dances including Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia & more. I hold numerous national and world titles in many different styles of dance and currently teach social students, competitive dancers and compete & perform worldwide.
My career in dance includes developing many fun and exciting projects. I am the founder of Milonga MagnificaTM, “Southern California’s most Magnificent Milonga,” TangoBurlesqueTM, an Argentine Tango & Burlesque show scheduled to debut in 2024, and I am an Adjudicator for Tango competitions and travel to Argentina to teach in festivals and judge competitive events. I also have several clothing & accessory lines in development and have been featured as the lead dancer in several dance music videos!
But my true passion is for teaching. I genuinely love teaching and my students mean more to me than anything. I am so incredibly happy to watch each and every one of them as they improve and succeed on the dance floor.
Can’t wait to meet you on the dance floor!
(That’s me! I’m the little girl in the middle dancing when I was 5 years old!)
