Dear Students,

I am very grateful to Marci Hall for helping to plan this workshop. As you know, this workshop is self-produced by the NYBDC and we rely on dedicated administrators like Marci as well as volunteers in order to bring artists like Ana Yepes to the United States. I feel strongly about the quality and integrity of her work.  Unless a university invites her back to the States, this may be your only chance to study with her this side of the Atlantic.  Our Spanish/Mexican heritage in the States is a legacy shared by all citizens and for those who are not studying Spanish dance at the moment, this workshop is also for you!

Most sincerely,

Catherine Turocy, Artistic Director
