Sigrid van Tilbeurhgh
Since early childhood, she has been interested in dance. She started with ballet, and her desire to expand her knowledge and explore new ways of expression brought her to contemporary dance. In 1998, she discovered Argentine tango in South-Western France, where she has her roots.
By 2001, she was taking part in performances, and in the following year, she began giving classes. While studying Spanish language at university, she also continued her education in Argentine tango. Living in Toulouse far from the French capital, it was more of an effort in time and most of all in money for the student she was to seek out the dancers who would inspire her, and help her evolve into the dancer.
Among these dancers Hernán Obispo, Christophe Lambert, and Moira Castellano shaped her deeply and influenced strongly her further development as a dancer and as a teacher. Sigrid's technique workshops have become a speciality and she is very highly regarded for her pedagogy and her vision of the corporal movement. “When dancing tango, Sigrid’s refined elegance is complemented by her great musical interpretation. Thanks to experience and technique, her dynamic movements appear effortless and free. In class she generously shares her knowledge and thus facilitates her students progress.”
