As far as I can remember I have always been connected to music on a deep level. From my grandmother’s humming in the kitchen while she cooked, to the sounds of Tears for Fears’ ‘Mad World’ at our neighbourhood street parties. Genre was never a barrier, I loved all types of music – hiphop, latin, rock, r&b, funk&soul, folk, country, grunge, you name it.

It started at 5am in Tullamarine with a 7.5 hr drive with the team on board. A long […]
So last weekend I attended the 2012 Melbourne Bachata Festival – Victorian Bachata Competition, in support of my friend Natalie Montano of Synergy Salsa and to lend a screaming voice to all our Melbourne Dance Hub competitors. It was a pleasure to be a spectator and not be in the performance or judging mix this year. During the night someone asked me “What makes a good Bachata routine?” To me, humbly speaking, this is what I say to my students […]
