I am a bailaora - flamenco dancer. Onstage my motivation is to become transparent. Each night I shed my shell, put away my mask and expose what I keep hidden in my corners and secret passageways. Flamenco means revealing yourself and interacting in the most honest way possible. Utilizing the codes and signals, which make up the flamenco language, I engage the audience by becoming vulnerable, which is the core of my art. For them I become a sort of mirror so they can see that transparent and vulnerable nature in themselves.
