I interact with folks from other cultures through my dance disciplines. Especially Polynesian, belonging to a "halau" (dance school) in Aurora.
When I was in Italy, I got by OK, but I would need to brush up on my Italian!
I am knowledgeable about Polynesian culture, the origin of the Pizzica (dance of the tarantula), and Middle Eastern dance.
I am originally from New Jersey, a first generation Italian American. I teach and perform many cultural dances such as Belly Dance, Bollywood, and Pizzica Pizzica. That is why I am drawn to world music and cultures.
A great choice for a Meetup. Organizer Jennifer did a great job!
