Manuela was a ballet dancer throughout her childhood until she was 19. She graduated as a professional ballet dancer from the National Ballet School of Argentina: "She followed a two-year intensive programme at the Ecole Supérieure de Danse de Cannes in France with a UNESCO scholarship.
Both of them started tango with other partners but had many of their main teachers in common.
