I have studied and danced the styles of Afro-Cuban, modern, jazz, tap, ballet, liturgical dance and my latest feat: Zumba, merging all of what I’ve learned over decades of taking classes, and dancing professionally, and melding it into a fun fitness class for all levels. My earliest memory of being a “real” dancer was when I was age 9. No other kid showed up to ballet and tap class on this Saturday. Who knows why. But what I do know is that instead of canceling class and calling my parents to pick me up, my teacher, Mrs. Maia Watson, made sure to make use of those two hours she had alone with me. That was the first time I remember sweating. That was a tough day. My dance career high: when Carmen DeLavallade complimented my Horton-technique deep floor movement while studying dance at Howard University. I have performed at the African Marketplace and Cultural Faire (Los Angeles), Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Paladium, the Home of actor Ed Asner, Wilshire Ebell Theatre (Los Angeles), National Cathedral (Washington, DC), New York Avenue Presbyterian Church & more!
