Daniel has been working as a professional dancer and instructor for more than 14 years, training both individuals and groups, and conducting workshops in Brazil, Europe and in the United States. He has performed many different dance styles for television and stage including Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary Dance, Flamenco, Latin rhythms, Brazilian dances and Tango, his specialty.
He has spent the last few years meticulously researching the process of teaching Tango and the training of new dance professionals. He has developed a personal teaching method based on strong body awareness and concepts and techniques from the fields of psychology and holistic therapies.
His teaching method is committed to the development of self-confidence and focuses on integral health regardless of age. This commitment is based on his own successful training in Ballet (Classic, Modern and Contemporary), Alexander Technique, Yoga, Bioenergetics Therapy, and Ayurvedic Massage.
Since the end of 2009, Daniel began incorporating modern techniques from the field of Somatic movement such as Feldenkrais and Topf Technique to continue his search for the most pleasant and healthy way of dancing.
Daniel’s vast experience allows him to embrace Tango’s many aspects, from the old Canyengue style to the contemporary Tango Nuevo. Before coming to London to perform in Midnight Tango, from 2007 Daniel lived in New York, where he made a considerable impact with his expertise and progressive technique.
