Carolina Soler is a distinguished dancer and choreographer. She founded Estampas Portenas in 1997 and is the artistic director of the company. She began her studies in dance in Lima, Peru, at the age of eight. She studied classical ballet and gained notoriety for her “dazzling portrayals” of the roles she performed. She brings a special touch to the “dance form that is the heart and soul of Argentina.”
The Tango originated in South America in the early 1900s. In the beginning, it was a dance only performed by women. When the dance spread to Argentina, the male was added, as was the element of sensual romance expressed in the synchronized movements of the dancers. There is much more to this style of Tango than the familiar and more modern “ballroom tango,” with its dramatic head snap and outstretched arms. The Tango of Argentina retains the intimacy of the original dance.
