Arte Y Pureza Workshop

August 1, 2009

Just returned home from a phenomenal workshop in San Diego held by the talented and amazing Arte y Pureza entitled “A Little Piece of Spain”.  It is always a great time and I always feel so welcomed by the community there.  Below are a few pics.


With two great talents: Ethan Margolis of Arte y Pureza and El Oruco.


Chris with amazing and beautiful flamenco singer Javier Heredia.

Cihtli Ocampo also taught at the workshop.  She is a phenomenal instructor and dancer.  Iseriously felt my lungs burning from the intensity of her classes.  It was awesome!


Hanging out at the beach and loving it!
