Tamara Levinson-Campos was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and grew up in New York City. At age 15, she represented the USA at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, in the sport of rhythmic gymnastics. After being a three time USA National Champion and competing in world class international competitions, she moved on to dancing professionally. She is also the creator of this beautiful, flowing dance inspired yoga form.
It’s not yoga, it's not dance, it’s YOGANCE! YOGANCE is a yoga inspired practice using techniques, elements of style and disciplines achieved within a professional dancers foundational training regiment. It focuses on correct alignment within the postures as well as fluid transitions that link breath to movement.
YOGANCE mixes creativity with intelligent body work to build strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, mindfulness, artistry, determination, will, patience, self-love, the openness to confront self-truths and personal growth on and off the mat. It is a life changing practice, allowing the Yogancer to find their own YOUnique voice from within.
