Call me ABO!!!
I am a professional dancer, a singer, a poet, intuitive, a healer, loyal, passionate, and overall a being w:a tremendous heart that lives to break molds and manifest the truest and most vibrant layer of myself!
I specifically dance Afrx-Latin, lyrical, hip hop, and freestyle! Afrx-Latin encompasses several cultural dance genres w:some of my favorites being baile funk, samba, punta, kuduro, and afrxbeat! Being “unconventional”, I feel it is my duty to challenge both myself and mainstream society by not judging me “in my authenticity”. That means living my non-gender conforming decolonizing truth whilst on my spiritual journey! There is so much to learn, and so much to live!!! which is why I do not favor any limitations!
In a world that offers so many outlets to escape the negative influences that are so prevalent, I DO Dance! Dance is my drug of choice and has really given my life a newfound purpose to truly embody My dance style, learn and grow my identity, and manifest my inner beauty no matter when and where I am, each and every day! And daily, I hustle to share my passion w:u.u via social media or live performances!
I teach WORLD BEAT every first Wednesday at Casa Solidaria del Sur located at 4163 S. Central Ave., Los Angeles, at 7P. (CASA is a POC community space that is donation based.) This class offers basic steps and grooves of several Latin & African genres of the world.
SamBaile Funk is a premier class offered at Crenshaw Yoga & Dance melanging basic samba steps + baile funk (a Rio de Janeiro born twerk and party style dance) every Thursday 730-9P! This class often features live accompaniment of drums or a Dj.
*Last day is February 2nd because I will be traveling to Rio for three months, and will return to continue the class and respectfully apply cultural knowledge I received during the travel!
