Who is TEODORA?
TEODORA is the Queen of Constantinople (today’s Istanbul) pictured in the mosaics of San Vitale in Ravenna.
There are no other portraits of this queen in the world.
History tells that this very portrait was made in Constantinople and sent to Ravenna exactly to be set in the mosaics of the church of San Vitale.
TEODORA was Empress of the Eastern Roman Empire but when she was a young girl she had been a dancer, a circus acrobat, a singer, a musician, a traveler and a “courtesan”.
All qualities that tango dancers know well !!!
What do you think ???
For all these reasons we consider her as the dancer “patron saint” of our tango event.
