|Andrea was born in the beautiful city of Rosario, Argentina.
She began her dance studies in 1983 at age six, and has
explored many different genres from ballet, classical Span-
ish dances, Flamenco, modern dance, contact improvisa-
tion, Argentine folklore, Afro-Haitian, and many other
ethnic dance forms.
In 1998, Andrea moved to New York City to further her
studies in dance and body awareness techniques at the
Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and
Nassau Community College, Long Island. It was a combina-
tion of living in New York City and the nostalgia of being
away from home that brought her closer to Tango.
Always fascinated by the dynamics of the human body, how
it moves, connects and relates to itself and others, Andrea continues to research and explore movement through a daily practice of modern dance and Yoga.
As business manager, Andrea is the heart and soul behind Trio Garufa.
She has also performed with a number of well-respected tango dancers from all over the world. Along with Hung-Yut
Chen, she won the USA Tango
Contest in 2002 .
Andrea is currently teaching Tango Salon with Guillermo Garcia every
Thursday 8-9:30 at La Pista, 766 Brannan St. San Francisco CA.
