In 2010, I took my first trip to India, where I immersed in classical Indian dance studies. Since then, I have revisited once a year and have stayed 2-3 months at a time, engaging in the various dance communities of Pushkar, Vrindavan, Bhubaneshwar, Bihar, and Delhi. Each city (in different states) has had a completely different feeling and dynamic, as well as the Gurus themselves. Nonetheless, I have been greatly inspired on many levels, and continue to make my yearly plans to India!
I was actually bitten by the Flamenco bug many years ago. Being that I was a very busy bee, touring all over the world for almost a decade, I never really had a chance to stick with it and fully absorb it. Until just a few years ago, after retiring from company touring life, I found a wonderful flamenco master, Roberto Amaral! I have dedicated much time and energy, among his many faithful students, and have realised that this is something I will stick with for the rest of my life! So now, I am preparing for my very first trip to Spain, as a mere student, where I will spend six weeks in full immersion through the cities of Madrid, Sevilla, and Jerez de la Frontera, the cradle of flamenco!
Drawing from all this immense inspiration, my fusion baby is born!
Here are some short clips from my most recent fusion workshop series in Los Angeles. These are simply works in progress as I continue to draw inspiration through various avenues…
