Two of my main teachers are Cuban and living in Havana – Emilito del Monte Mata (Cubanismo, Robert Fonseca, Alexis Bosch, Alex Cuba)
and Duniesky Barreto (Pupy y Los Que Son Son; Bamboleo).
I have also studied with members of the Ballet Folklorico Nacional de Cuba, Clave y Guaguanco, Rumberos de Cuba, Cutumba, and Grupo Afro-Cuba de Matanzas. Of those groups, I spent the majority of my time studying with Mikael Ramon and Alisbey of Cutumba, and Ernesto Gato Gatell and Lucumi of Rumberos de Cuba.
