“Joti Singh’s passion for celebration and joyous movement leads her to incorporate Mexican, West African, French, and hip hop rhythms into her choreography. She has traveled to Guinea several times to master West African dance, staged a cutting-edge narrative performance about Guantanamo Bay, and is currently working with Zenon Barron of Ballet Folklorico de San Francisco to choreograph a piece about Punjabi-Mexicans in the Imperial Valley.”
“SIMONE MARTICKE likes to show off her new hip-shaking and hand-twirling moves at Alberto’s Night Club in Mountain View.
Marticke has been taking Bollywood dancing classes for a few weeks at the YWCA in Berkeley, and when Alberto’s hosts an occasional Bollywood night, she has some steps to show her longtime Bollywood dancing friends”
