Magali Suarez: From Colon theatre to the world
Magazine On Pro interviewed Magalí Suárez
At what age did you start as a dancer? I started when I was five years old in a landmark study of Tupin Wasil, a teacher who trained greats dance in our country. My sister, while she was pursuing the career of dancer in Colon Theater, attended these classes and my parents took me long to see her (in the studio and on the Colon).
How were the first steps? After Tupin study, at the seven years olds I met teacher Miguel Miranda (creator of the study “Domus”), who prepares me for the exams to enter at the Art Superior Institute of Colón Theater when I was eight years old. I passed all three exams and went to be the smaller of course.
The popularity, what is it for you? Popularity is relative. In environments that are often quite small people understood the issue, either ballet or tango is like underworld. Of course there are dancers who have won the popularity of the media but there are also great artists around the world, especially in Argentina, dancing in the best theaters in the world.
What is the dance for you? My life. Since I was born and until the last moments of my life I will be somehow connected to it, either as a dancer, teacher, critic, choreographer, etc.
