Tamara “Cuchira” Levinson was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved to the USA at age 5. She represented the USA Rhythmic Gymnastics team at the 1992 Olympic Games just 10 years later. Following her athletic career she moved to NYC to evolve beyond the athlete. There she found freedom in movement, specifically dance and aerial arts.
This led to a successful 20+ year professional dance and choreography career which included dancing on three world tours with Madonna and many other pop icons. Her next big artistic venture came by way of her roots through a well-known avant-garde aerial group called ‘De La Guarda’. She co-choreographed and performed in the shows “Villa Villa” and Fuerzabruta. Tamara’s curiosity about all forms of physical expression took her to Broadway in Twyla Tharp’s staging of “The Times Are A Changin’ and she choreographed for commercials, theatre and films such as the movie “The Greatest Showman” with Hugh Jackman.
Organically her raw emotional work led into guiding others to their own freedom through the body’s wisdom. She began teaching workshops and masterclasses about tapping into the language of the body and listening to our inner worlds. MovMEANT, a technique she personally curated from her life experience and empathic ways of how to connect to the emotional body opened a whole new movement world for Tamara. She has now been teaching MovMEANT for almost three decades all over the world and this has changed her life and of those who have incorporated the practice into their lifestyle.
