Mabel - Choreographer - Tango Dancer

















Elena Mabel Rivero learned her first dancing steps in the city of Rosario, Argentina.

Along with Buenos Aires and Montevideo, Rosario is part of the "Triángulo Rioplatense", the triangle of the River Plate, which is home to a distinctive artistic style.

It is a confluent of African, European, Middle-Eastern, North American and Latin American forms and ideas, an intricate cultural landscape.

The choreography is the writing of the dance, it is the art of composing sequences of movements.   

A choreographer coordinates the requirements of the music, the space, the stage and the aptitudes of the dancers to make something magic arise.
In the past, the place for the choreography was the theatre.

Nowadays it is possible to see a choreography in different events like; anniversaries, presentations of books, samples of art, opening of commerce, street events, conventions, congresses, as well as others.

In her choreographic work she interprets and connects the characteristic of the event, with the necessary resources to transform them into an artistic fact which represents the need of the client or event.

Mabel also offers choreographies in situations where the dance could become a conductive thread, i.e. cinematographic productions, short advertising, videos, etc.

In her hometown and in Bs As, it has been employed at scenic productions for theatre and television.
