Passion and determination are two qualities which describe who I am as a person. My passion for dance started to manifest at a young age. Considering music and dance play an important role in my culture, my interests in dance increased throughout the years. I was born and raised on the beautiful Island of Aruba thus, grew up in a multicultural environment. I believe the way I have been raised has emerged a personal curiosity to research and obtain more knowledge and understanding about different cultures.
My dance career initiated in Aruba, were I had the opportunity in the past to dance for Oscar de Leon who is a well-known salsa singer. I have been active performing for different local artist also for big festivals, events and worked as a full-time dancer at Barcelo Hotel Aruba. 5 years ago I decided to leave my island to pursue a degree in Dance Education. Furthermore, expand my dance career and today after all the hard work, I’m graduating from the Teacher’s department at Amsterdam University of the arts.
