I began by improvising as a teenager at home in Puerto Rico. I had never seen a dancer but imagined how it might be. We had 4 records in all, one of which had an inspiring Greek song.
I performed in college for the first time after 3 Middle Eastern dance lessons and watching other dancers perform. I had been studying modern, ballet, and jazz for a couple of years as well as drama.
I have been in the Middle Eastern music and dance field for close to 30 years. I co-direct Harmonic Motion Middle Eastern Music and Dance Theater with Joe Zeytoonian. We work in South Fla. and internationally. Visit us at harmonicmotion.com.
A couple of Oriental dancers, an Afro-Cuban dancer, dance supply store owners, a kefji, a few more musicians---it turned into a party!
