FREAKING. OUT. 🤪😭🤩 I cannot put into words how thrilled I am to be announcing the much-awaited FIRST-EVER #DancingDiasporaFestival !!! •
•
•
 #DancingDiaspora community class was something I dreamed up 2 years ago as an attempt to share the kind of dance practice I wanted to have, one that was rooted in ancestral Latinx dances and opened possibilities of moving and being in the world. These last 2 years have been a journey of coming home into my own body and finding home in this beautiful diasporic city of Los Angeles where so many of our ancestral lands and practices converge, especially for those of us who are Latin American. •

What does it mean to queer geography? To mobilize borders and find the flux and porousity that is in fact always present no matter how thick the walls are? What does it mean to dance in community, honoring individual expression and the collective body? To find possibilities in the convergence of past, present, future... invoking ancestral memory to create new paths forward? To dance diaspora is to locate the body as generator of knowledge to ALL these questions. I hope to move with and learn from your body at this festival... ✨🙏🏽✨ •

And when it got time to explain the colonization of the body through classical ballet, you know i couldn’t just talk about it... 💃🏽💃🏽 Super proud of this panel of chingonas (did I mention it was the first one EVER at USC Price School of Public Policy to feature all women of color panelists??), check out the full conversation link in bio 🙌🏽 #decolonizethebody #artivista #danceandchangemaker #dancerscholar #decolonizeacademia #WOC #latinx #transformationtuesday #tbtuesday

Two years ago I started the Dancing Diaspora weekly class from a somewhat selfish desire to give myself the kind of dance practice I wanted and wasn’t finding in LA. It was also an attempt to make sense of a lifetime of nomadic living and dancing, a body born in Brazil and raised throughout Latin America and the US, trained in ballet, modern, Samba, Afro-Cuban, capoeira and everything in between. •
•
•
What did it mean to live in diaspora? To be deeply rooted in the culture of somewhere that was physically distant, but to be conjuring up that place everyday through dance and music and speaking and breathing? What a dance practice that reflected all this be like? •
•
•
I could’ve never imagined 2 years ago that these questions would have led to the huge, vibrant and growing #DancingDiaspora community that exists today, and this beautiful @voyagelamag feature about the journey. •
•
•
I want to say a deep OBRIGADA to the hundreds of movers who join me week after week on Thursday nights for community class— the core go-ers who don’t miss a week, the busy folks who come when they can, the new-comers who are just now hearing about it, and the people who keep supporting from afar. And a special thank you to @jmykidd and @pieterperformancespace for inviting me to apply for the California Arts Council Grant 2 years ago and make the class free of charge to the community. ALL of the support for this growing movement is wild and humbling beyond words to me. I CANT WAIT for us all to come together, dialogue, groove, and MOVE at the first ever #DancingDiasporaFestival on Jun 1-2 at Pieter Space. Save the date y’all!!!! •

I’ve been pushing myself to dive deeper into my improvisation practice recently. I realized that improv is something I deeply value in my process but that I hadn’t really explored it in performance. Like I didn’t trust myself enough to improvise in front of an audience. But my research lately, around the body as a crossroads and what it means to “vessel” spirit through one’s movement, has been calling for it. It’s been asking me to enter a space of vulnerability, to go in without a plan and really truly listen. I’m still building my comfort level around it, but I can say it’s exhilarating to be that present in my body, that grounded in the NOW. And neither of these things are singular. My body is never just my body, it’s always (already) a meeting ground for the individual “me” and the collective ancestral “we”. And the now is never just the present, it’s always (already) past meeting present meeting future, because through my movement I’m conjuring up memory and creating possibilities for futurity. And hell, none of these realizations are new or unique to me, they’re actually ancient ways of knowing and being with the self/world. I’ve learned them from teachers who learned them from their teachers, and so the wisdom keeps cycling and transforming and deepening. Feeling grateful for this moving breathing body and the lineage of Latin & Afro-Latin & African diasporic movers-thinkers who’ve guided me this far...⚡️⚡️ #movementmonday #decolonizethebody #vesseling #diasporicdance #contemporarydance #diaspora #danceimprov #latinx #MFA #dancerscholar shout out to @shamellbell for capturing this, @tatianazamir for inviting me to perform at this beautiful event, and @carolinacmch por la musica maravillosa 🙏🏽🙏🏽
