FREE HOUSE DANCE AND HIP HOP WORKSHOP WITH FLY LADY DI!

House and hip hop dance emerged and became popular in the early 1990s by a dance crew called The Mop Tops out of New York City. Fly Lady Di had the privilege of training with them intensively while she lived in New York and wishes to preserve these dances by teaching them worldwide. The styles could be described as funky, energetic, soulful and rhythmic – as their influences are Latin dance, African dance and American musical theatre (tap and jazz). In this workshop, students will get a chance to learn a bit of history behind the movements, brush up on dance vocabulary and discover a new aesthetic behind popular dance styles. You’ll also get to bust a move (or two) as well. Undeniably fun, intense and enlightening.

Nuff Tings a Gwan…

11 Feb

Hey yo! I haven’t blogged in AGES – I guess I’ve been relying on Facebook and Twitter to tell everyone wussup… But thanks to the inspiration of my boo @TheBigNormShow, I’ve wanted to get it together and put a new blog up! So here we are…

As much as people love and adore my ARTWORK I wanted to focus this blogsite strictly on acting and dancing since thisis my primary focus right now. I love art, and I’ll always be a visual artist, but I’ve realized that what I’ve always wanted to do is to perform and teach, so now this is where all my energy is going. Not to say I’ll never paint again, but my focus is on ONE TRACK now, which should definitely help push things forward yeah!

Okay enough talk, enjoy the latest video clip of me dancing in Mumbai, India (made my my girl Priya Lisa Gonsalves @priyalisa – founder of Urbanista, India’s First All-Female Street Dance Crew!)
