It has always been a special dream for me to go the Zumba convention in order to attend the Fitness Concert. The convention and the concert is just for instructors. The Fitness Concert— otherwise known as a Zumba class with 6,000 people and with the founder of Zumba himself–Beto Perez.
For over 20 years I’ve been making a pilgrimage to San Francisco’s Carnival Celebration on Memorial Day weekend.
It’s been more than twenty years since I stumbled into my first encounter with Brazilian dance. It was 1992 or 1993 in Santa Cruz, California and spontaneously I attended a performance of Brazilian dance at Louden Nelson Center. Immediately I knew it was something I was interested in. I still remember seeing Conceição Damaseco dance […]
I got to see my “old” samba troupe perform in Seattle a few weeks ago.
I took many photos as I was excited to participate in Carnival this year— that is as a bystander.
