Noel Strazza

Noel Strazza, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and when I was 10 years old, I began to study dance- a path that led to a degree from the "Taller de Danza Contemporanea" of the San Martin Theatre, whose Ballet Juvenil she subsequently joined from 1995 to 1997. She danced in the theatre's productions of Boquitas Pintadas, Once Corazones and 101 Dalmatians.

In 1998 Noel worked with Ballet de Bolsillo, a company directed by the prestigious argentine choreographer Oscar Araiz, as co-choreographer with Yamil Ostrovsky, and won the first choreography award at the IV Dance Festival of Amazonas in Brazil. She assisted and danced in many original creations by Carlos Veiga.

Noel has been dancing Tango since 1997. For 5 years, she worked with the renowned tango dancer Pablo Veron with whom she taught and performed tango in numerous countries in Europe, Australia, Asia and North America as well as dancing at the 2005 Gala des Etoiles at Montreal's Place des Arts.

She has both acted in and choreographed productions for the Theatre de l'Utopie, directed by Cristina Iovita. Noel has been a guest choreographer for the Les Sortileges dance company and, since 2008, has often been invited by Cirque du Soleil to work at La Nouba as a movement/tango consultant and teacher.

Noel now works with argentine tango dancer, choreographer and husband, Pablo Pugliese. Together, based in Montreal, they dance and teach in Canada, the USA and Europe.
