DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!! .. finally having some time to post about some of the incredible experiences I've been going through... I know, it's long!! This was my first final jump in our show @fb_tokyo #fuerzabrutawa. More than 15 years ago I saw #delaguarda perform in #nyc, and fell in love with the show! I knew that's what I wanted to do, and left inspired! Years later I auditioned for #fuerzabruta and made it all the way through and saw their new show. I knew i would eventually make my way in that show when time was right... i fell in love with the show and the performers- especially their then captain, @cuchira. I hoped that one day, I'd get the opportunity to work with her because her energy is amazing. Fast forward 6+years later after I finished touring with #Pilobolus full time, I returned to NYC, and again auditioned for #fuerzabruta with the mentality that this job was mine... hahaha I knew it was time! I joined the cast in 2014 and had the most incredible empowering experience as a female performer on and off stage. That cast and family supported me through and incredibly rough time in my life, and fueled me with love, passion, support, fire, and freedom. I am crying just thinking of them. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to carry the torch over to my homeland... a place I've always wanted to work as a performing artist, and share with my people, the lessons I learned about emotions, expression, empowerment, passion, love, fire, rawness, a different kind of beauty....and now, i feel all the power and love from my friends across the world through my veins cheering me on.. cuz they know how much I wanted this. I not only get to be part of another creative process, but I get to train and inspire many more, spread all of the love that I've been showered with to help their growth, be incredibly free and celebrate my everything almost everyday, be reminded of my amazing comrades who helped me get here, finally work, perform, and learn from the incredible @cuchira, and finally work in japan to share with my family, friends, and people, what the hell I've been doing for the last 30 years!!! Dreams do come true when you stay positive and you don't give up!!!
