About Titis

Music and dance has always been a great passion for Titis. Since she was a child, she has taken every opportunity to be involved in dance and music.

Titis has thrown herself into learning multiple dance styles, including tango, blues, bachata, kizomba, and zouk. She loves tango for its beauty and passionate embrace.

Titis has also broadened her passion for music, and developed a unique taste to reflect all of these experiences, her playful nature in dancing, her passion, and her freedom of expression.
