About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Perform, create, perform, create

ABOUT ME

I´ve been dancing for nearly my whole life. I´m now in a stage where I´m performing as a solo, in collaboration with other people, taking workshops, etc. I´m now more interested in Performance Art. All this in different countries. I´ve also been an English teacher for nearly 12 years teaching all levels, groups and private classes. I really enjoy what I do. I love traveling although with Performance I haven´t been able to do much traveling so I have decided to join both and try to Perform in different places, meeting people and learning from other cultures and Performing in other spaces.

PHILOSOPHY

Always live your dreams!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to participate as much as I can. I can´t have someone at my place, I can give some tips of the city and if I´m not working or dancing, which is very rare, I can show you around or maybe you can come to one of my performances. I always need support.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It´s been great! I´ve only surfed once but for being the first time it was an amazing experience. My host were the best, I think this will be a long time friendship.

I´ve also met a lot of people here in Barcelona, for a drink or lunch, always a great laugh and fun!

Interests

I´m interested in everything maybe not too much in sports or football, sorry! but I´m open for everything. Of course I could go to a dance performance or video performance everyday but I know not everyone is open for that.

Music, Movies & Books

Movie: Old Boy, Magnolia, 2046 Books: Amor en tiempos de Colera, Cien años de Soledad, Metamorfosis, Kafka on the Shore

Teach, Learn, Share
