Episode 12: Donna Mejia Interview

2:43 PM Edit This 0 Comments »
This week we revisit the Tribal Solstice workshop and the interview Mary had with Donna Mejia! (As it was taken during the workshop lunch break please forgive the background noise!) Donna gives us some insight on how her experiences growing up in dance have informed the decisions she makes as a teacher and performer...and she explains why she classifies herself as a dork! And Shimmy Cove returns...Will Samantha and Jack be able to escape the clutches of Maude Farquart or will the American-Russian mafia trap Nadine in its evil clutches forever?!?
