I believe that being a dancer is to be on a path, one which stretches far ahead with many branchings, beyond our ability to see a final destination. Some of us are further down the path than others and it is the responsibility of those ahead to reach back and say, “Hey – there’s something really cool up ahead. I’ve seen it! I’ll help you get there!”.
I am grateful for the teachers who have gone ahead of me and provided that help and inspiration. I am honored to provide another link in that chain of discovery.
Flamenco gives expression to ALL the emotions, not just the happy ones. I can be sad, angry, joyful. It allows me to turn whatever I’m feeling, even if it is something dark or “ugly” into something beautiful.
