Collaboration
Flamenco in the Round
Apr 14   |   2 pm – 4 pm   |   PWYC
Motif Photography (121634 Ave NE, #10)

I’m excited to invite you to experience Flamenco in the Round: a captivating mix of performance, talk, and workshop that takes you deep into the heart of flamenco. Get up close and personal with us as the dance, music, and stories unfold around you. Our presentation in the round takes you back to the roots of storytelling, where everyone gets involved and shares in the magic. Explore flamenco as a language of expression and connection— ask questions, chat with us, and even try some flamenco steps in our workshop. Let’s blur the lines between audience and performers for an unforgettable evening that leaves lasting connections and memories.
This is a special collaboration with Motif Photography.

Workshop
Bulerias por Fiesta
Apr 16 & 23   |   6 pm – 8 pm   |   $120
UniverseSoul Dance Studio (Bay 13 – 3300 14th Ave NE)

Bulerías por fiesta is undeniably one of the most exhilarating flamenco styles, accessible to dancers of all levels. Our course aims to demystify it, focusing on its structure, rhythm, and knowing when the rules hold or break. We offer a flexible format: the first hour covers dance structures and compás, while the second integrates guitar and vocals. Join us to embrace bulerías’ spirit and enjoy the moment!

Creation
Artistic Residency
April 2024

During my April residency, I’m immersing myself in contemporary choreography by Graham McKelvie, infusing it with flamenco elements to create a dynamic fusion of tradition and innovation. This solo exploration, set to a spoken word, allows me to refine my skills and deepen my artistic voice, exploring rich connections between dance languages and creating performances that resonate with raw emotion and captivating narratives.
