Camila

Camila was born in a small city called Pigüe, in Argentina.

Her mother was a music teacher and her father was an athlete and soccer player. Her life was full of sports, dance and music. At the age of 17, she moved to Buenos Aires to study physical education, and, there, she also began to dance salsa. She was so passionate about it that it led her to prepare herself and travel to participate in two world championships, the World Latin Tours, in the US, winning 2nd place.

Upon returning she realized that she needed to go for more and that salsa needed a break…so one of greatest dreams began, learn to Ballroom Dance as she had seen it in movies. Ballroom Dance became her dance love, her great passion.

So she started her competitive career taking 2nd Place in the 2019 South American Open. And although her love for teaching physical education was intact, the proposal to be part of Noelia and Martin’s studio team of dance teachers gave her life a big turn to dedicate herself 100% to ballroom dance… a great challenge that motivates her to continue learning. in this beautiful world of dance.
