A new class offering at the Jeffrey Bihr Studio with Bay Area newcomer, dancer, singer and performing artist Lina del Roble.
Blending elements of Afro-Latino and Brazilian dance with modern, Latin American folk, Pilates, yoga,
theatrical improvisation and other movement techniques,
MOVI-RITMO is a celebration of movement and dance to exhilarating rhythms of all kinds in a spirit of non-competitive self-expression.
The class consists of deep stretching, toning & strengthening, technique, choreography and warm-down.
Some previous dance experience is helpful - Natural rhythm a plus!! Be prepared to dance barefoot.
Class meets every Saturday morning from 10:30 till 12 noon unless otherwise posted. It's always good to check first, as Lina occasionally cancels due to outside obligations.

Lina del Roble : A performing artist since childhood in Mexico City, Lina has spent the last twenty five years focusing on
Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian dance and music. Lina considers her training at the 'Academia de la Danza Mexicana”'
of Mexico City's National Fine Arts Institute, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre's school in New York City,
the contemporary environmental dance group Invisible Inc. of Austin
and the Federal University of Bahia's Dance Department in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
as the most valuable in her long career as a dancer. Lina was an Artist-in-Education for the Texas Commission of the Arts for 15 years
and represented over a dozen leading cultural institutions in San Antonio as a teacher/director, choreographer,
liaison, performer and curriculum specialist. Her dance training in Mexican folkloric, Modern, Jazz and various Afro-inspired genres
is reflected in her unique and eclectic style of teaching and 'interpreting' movement to music.
Currently, she works in Hispanic marketing and broadcast communications, having stepped away from the stage (for a while),
and is always ready for a chance to let loose to sway, stomp, slide and soar. She welcomes you to join her to 'move to the music'!
