Tango sensation Sharna Fabiano '97 was profiled as one of “25 to Watch” in the January 2008 issue of Dance Magazine.
Reviewer Lisa Traiger noted, “Balancing atop tall pencil-thin heels, she traces rococo patterns as she swivels and snakes a leg around partner Isaac Oboka. A modern dancer by training, Fabiano immersed herself in the Argentine tango community a decade ago.”
Fabiano is “among a new wave of tangueras (female tango dancers) who assert their power to lead on dance floors and concert stages.” A former member of the women’s tango collective TangoMujer Company, Fabiano, 31, also teaches social tango around the U.S. and Europe.
While earning her bachelor's degree from William Smith in comparative literature, magna cum laude, Fabiano was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Koshare, and was a writing colleague and phonathon volunteer. She studied abroad in Bath, England; and Madrid, Spain.
Her Sharna Fabiano Tango Company is based in Washington, D.C.
