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!

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

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.

Wishing you a fabulous Friday and an enjoyable weekend!

Full Moon

March 27, 2013

It’s a full moon tonight. I’m not sure what it is about full moons, but it’s always my preference to be home, have some time alone and just be. Perhaps one day I’ll figure it out.

From The Rime of the Acient Mariner

The moving Moon went up the sky.
And nowhere did abide;
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside-

I like rap music. I feel like I’m in a confessional. But I do. Naughty by Nature, Queen Latifah, Salt-N-Pepa, Wreckx-N-Effect, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Hammer, Paperboy, Run DMC (of course), Lighter Shade of Brown…. the list goes on and on. And I like a ‘plethora’ of rap music. So, I thought I would post a… it’s not really a rap song, but,  by a high quality rapper, singer and actress. 🙂
