And sometimes when it rains... it pours!! Excited to announce that this beautiful duet, “Apoio”, featuring the stunning dancers @siempre_floreciendo & @lleannaa , choreographed by yours truly, will be shown at @calartsredcat ‘s Studio Show on June 2 & 3, same weekend as #DancingDiasporaFestival (and 10 days before I leave for France for the final summer of my MFA program)... Dang! I’m a little tired just thinking about that. But so grateful for the abundance of opportunities to continue creating and share work that honors ancestral diasporic dance in its many vibrant diverse possibilities 💛✨ Hope to see you at Redcat! #choreographer #redcat #diasporicdance #contemporarydance #latinx #woc #decolonizethebody #ladance

Art heals hearts, nourishes our souls and awakens collective consciousness. I feel myself shapeshifting into a new woman every time I connect with my true self and allow Spirit to move through me. And it can feel just as magical to bear witness to another soul who is channeling something greater than themselves, while being vulnerable and brave enough to share it with others. This is one of the many reasons I’m humbled, honored and thrilled to be performing at #DancingDiasporaFestival. This two day festival is a combination of guest speakers, performances and community dance classes hosted by the lovely @marinamagalicious. And as if that news wasn’t sweet enough, the entire festival is FREE!!! Save the date lovely ones 💜💜💜 June 1st & 2nd ✨✨✨

 #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... ✨🙏🏽✨ •

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!!!! •
