Nadia Tapia

Nadia is the main person behind Abrazo Tango, in her work she collaborates with different dancers from Finland and abroad. Nadia began dancing tango in 2007, in Temuco, Chile. A lawyer by profession, two years after starting dancing, she moved to Buenos Aires to pursue masters’ degree studies and be closer to the tango epicentre of the world. She has taught in Chile and Finland, where she currently resides and teaches regular lessons. She is able to both lead and follow and teach both roles. She has sought to complement her tango skills with the regular practice of other disciplines that focus on body movement, such as pilates, yoga and GYROKINESIS®.

In June 2022, Nadia and Luis were finalists in the UK Argentine Tango Championship, official preliminary of the World Cup.
