ROSA GINGER BERG

Rosa Ginger Berg's entire life has always been devoted to art and dance in the most varied ways. She studied sculpture with Michelangelo Pistoletto and new media with Peter Kogler at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the Argentine tango in Buenos Aires and fashion design at SITAM Vienna.

 

Celebrating art and her creativity is very important to Rosa Ginger Berg and has taken her to a wide variety of places around the world.

She has lived in Paris, New York, Buenos Aires, Italy, Spain and Vienna.

 

At the beginning she devoted herself to the fine arts, painting, photography and mixed media works, only to later find her artistic expression in the Argentine Tango and its unique culture. For more than twenty-five years she has worked internationally as a dancer, choreographer and trainer of the Argentine tango, as well as director of her own tango academy "Pasional Tango Club" (Buenos Aires / NY / Paris / Costa Blanca / Vienna) and "Rosa de Tango" and has taken part in numerous international festivals, film- and tango productions and organized tango trips, milongas, festivals etc.

For years she danced and taught with Carlos Forte-Berg (1999 to 2015),  starting with their own milonga in the famous Confiteria Ideal in Buenos Aires in 1998, they jointly founded the Pasional Tango Club in different continents / cities and were able to passing on their passion for the Argentine Tango to hundreds of students using a unique structured learning system that they created.

In 2019 Rosa founded her art jewelry label La Maison de Ginger at the same time.

Growing up in a family of artists and musicians, she assisted already as a child as a listener in the orchestra pit of the Graz Opera, where her father played the bassoon, in what was then and now the magical world of music and theater. Out of gratitude for these irretrievable experiences, she feels, out of her artistic responsibility, to personally approach art in a very authentic way, beyond the paths of the mainstream, and to discover and promote other artists as well.

 

Rosa Ginger Berg appears at Moment Musical as a co-organizer, manager and founding member.
