A Message - Feb. 21, 2022
As we continue living into the 3rd year of this pandemic, my traveling and teaching at events continues to take a pause. At this time, the only avenues for my classes are online and though I have taught a handful of classes when the pandemic started, my plan to continue to do so has fallen short. However, an opportunity has come up for me to make my classes and lessons available online through a subscription portal. So, please stay tuned for a future announcement.
On a more personal note, I miss teaching and being a part of communities in my immediate locale and around the world, seeing friends and getting to hold them in dance, witnessing dancers discover joy in dancing, and in turn, giving me a sense of reward and purpose in what I do. When the world has found ways to move on and continue with day-to-day life, it saddens me that our activity of dance is one that´s high risk in relation to the pandemic. I know that some of you have resumed dancing and some dance events are back up and running. But as far as my personal involvement is concerned, I feel I am not yet ready. Also, I feel the need to be responsible, not only to myself and loved ones, but to people´s health given my position as a teacher who travels from one community to the next. Though I may be absent on the dance floor (physical and virtual) I continue to monitor the news and worldwide information to assess the situation on when I can join you all. In the meantime, please take care of yourselves, practice safe and good health practices and measures to ensure your protection as well as others.
I look forward to the day when we can be all together dancing again without much worry and risk.
