Fire and Passion
Whether we paint, draw, or dance, we are all artists and have much to teach each other.
Maria Benitez is a legendary dancer, choreographer and director. She is internationally recognized as a leader in Spanish dance and flamenco, and has performed through most of the Americas and Europe since the early sixties.
Today, Maria tells her students that what is most important, in dance and life, is fire and passion. A student adds:
She says she can’t teach us that: you have to find it within yourself.
She can definitely out dance all of us . . .
Maria exudes strength. She loves drama, but is comfortable with quiet. And what does she love most about Flamenco?
What I like is that when I watch someone, I don’t know what they are going to do next . . .
That’s what I love about making art~I don’t know what I am going to do next.
