There are so many inspiring things happening in my life. Tomorrow is yet another grand opportunity to take part in a new show entitled, ‘FlaMexico!’ A savory blend of flamenco music and dance blended with the sweet tones of Mariachi Music. It will be an unforgettable evening!

Flamenco in Baton Rouge

June 15, 2013

I’ll be traveling to Baton Rouge, Louisiana next week for a one week residency to perform and teach. I’m excited at another opportunity to choreograph and meet new people. I seriously cannot wait and I feel extremely blessed.

Casa Vicente May 2013

This image was taken by the talented Sylvia Hardt Photography and graphics by Mele Martinez. I’m really looking forward to this event. The staff at Casa Vicente are so kind and the food is exceptional. Flamenco del Peblo Viejo is the resident company at Casa Vicente. You can see them perform every Friday and Saturday Night. Make sure to visit their website for upcoming events and classes.  This is a perfect outing in celebration of Mother’s Day!

Guess what I’m doing today? That’s right. Dancing my booty off. I’ve been performing every Friday Night at Province Restaurant in downtown Phoenix. Hopefully you can find some time to squeeze in a little bit of dancing during your weekend; whether it be in the literal sense of the word… or figuratively.

Friday dance

Wishing you a fabulous Friday and an enjoyable weekend!

These images are by artist Alison Mackie. She’s also the author of The Gypsy Chronicles. Alison is a pretty incredible talent. I enjoyed her book and I love these images —  so I had to post. I hope to travel to Spain this summer and these images remind me of Spain, flamenco and my love for both. The Festival de Jerez is taking place so it seems appropriate to add some letras por bulerías from that region.There’s a great resource where I found the below verses, along with a mountain of more flamenco letras. Please visit: Letras de Flamenco

Tengo una puerta en mi alma
que no necesita llave
yo la tengo siempre abierta
y no me la cierra nadie

( bulerías de jerez letra)

Cuando salga la luna
yo voy a verte
porque me alumbra el camino
gitana mia
pa yo quererte

( bulerías de jerez letra)

Cuatro pare francisco
cuatro del carmen
cuatro de la victoria
vaya que si, son doce frailes.

Era por eso
solito por eso
guarda los limones que tiene tu huerto

( bulerías de jerez letra)

Me tiraste un limón
que si ma dado en la frente
eso lo hace el amor
flamenquita los que sienten
ay que te quiero
te quiero te quiero
que de vergüenza
y no te lo peno

( bulerías de jerez letra)

I’ll be performing with Chris Burton Jácome at The Manship Theatre on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 7:30pm. Love the space there. I’ll also be teaching a flamenco dance workshop at The Dance Center and School for the Performing Arts and doing another flamenco dance and music outreach program at The Crestworth Academy. Lots of exciting projects ahead! I’ll be certain to enjoy my time in Baton Rouge!

Artwork – Rassouli

March 1, 2013

Tonight and every Friday in March I’ll be performing at Province Restaurant in downtown Phoenix with Chris. The shows are from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. I feel very lucky to have the career I have with blessings of opportunities. I love what I do for a living and when I saw this painting by Rassouli, I thought, “Wow! This is how I feel!”

It’s a beautiful image.

Sending blessings your way!

I’m originally from a small mining town in New Mexico called Silver City. I’ve been teaching over the past 3 days at a local dance studio and have set some work on the students at the Conservatory of Dance. They’ll be performing tonight in the flamenco concert held at the Silco Theater. I’ll be performing with my husband, Chris. It’s been nice to have some time to get more involved with the community during this visit. I’m looking forward to the concert tonight!
