Mm Mm Monday – Nana Candelaria, Rachel Brice’s Roots

posted in: MmMmMonday | 0

Here at Deep Roots Dance, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out we value the roots from which we all came. Nobody sprung fully formed from Zeus’ forehead (though I joke to my students all the time that I have). Every dancer is the product of another dancer’s inspiration and training.  So, too, with the ever-beloved Rachel Brice.

Here is a video of one of RB’s earliest and most influential instructors, Nana Candelaria. A precise and playful dancer, you can clearly see her powerful influence on today’s most famous fusion dancer.
