A mexican fusion summer dream: This piece has been created with love, like an hommage to my mexican culture, and the middle eastern dances that I love to dance and I’ve learned, as well as the fusion dances I’ve learned from US & Europe. The intention is to inmerse others (as myself too) in my dance journey from a mexican perspective. Showing all my influences and connecting them. Specially I love to improvise, it brings me joy and it feels amazing to explore movement and make shapes or just following the music and get lost in it. This is a summer story, a mexican summer story, ending with ice cream, with a song that feels from here and there. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you see the incredible stories and magic that México has.
