This South American sweetheart, a temple of artistry, is a theatrical ballerina with a big heart of gold and a small tin ear. She has won audiences over with her winning smile, syncopated rhythm and her very unique style of movement which has made many ask “What the?” Shamelessly using selfies to promote her cause and herself, her work with the coordinately challenged has led her to be considered a saint to those with two left feet.  She has been given a wide berth by her fellow dancers, creating a spot on the stage for herself that only she can fill.   Always dancing to the beat of her own drum and nothing else she has risen to the middle.

This loving, sparkling personality would like to share the following, “Laugh and the world laughs with you, fall and the world laughs.
