Anara is a Boston native, but has spent almost as much time in Cuba—visiting since she was a child, and receiving much of her dance education there. Her training & certifications include many styles of Latin Dance, Contemporary Dance & Acro/Gymnastics, as well as fusion work in these and other genres. With over 25 years experience, she is the founder of the MetaMovements Artist Collective, and is recognized for her expertise in developing artists—taking them up the ladder of success in their chosen styles and focus areas. She has taught in the U.S., Europe, Asia & the Caribbean, and is known for her ability to help dancers of every level achieve their goals. Her work is continuously inspired by MetaMovements Dance Trips to Cuba, and her on-going collaborations with artists & educators on the island.
Lady (aka Eli), an Artist Collective Member of MetaMovements, is a multi-talented Dancer, Singer, Lyricist, Instructor/Educator and Percussionist. Born and raised in Boston to a family of performers and educators she grew up learning the importance of music and dance in health, education and community building. She learned to play percussion instruments, sing and dance Bomba, Plena, Hip Hop and Salsa, amongst other traditional, folkloric and modern genres from a young age. Today, she shares her experiences and love through teaching dance, percussion and song to others, as well as performing and producing arts programming and events locally, nationally and internationally. Throughout the years she has developed varying strategies for student engagement based on age, level and environment. At present she is the Manager of Arts & Education for MetaMovements coordinating events, classes and workshops in the Greater Boston area.
Together with support from a team of fierce artists entrepreneurs, Anara and Lady combine their efforts to lead Cubanizate!, a one-of-a-kind program in which dancers from Cuba & the US train simultaneously-- opening the doors for cultural exchange and community-building across borders in a way that’s never happened before. As part of this program, students and instructors in both countries share their knowledge and culture, providing exceptional learning opportunities for all involved. These workshops at the Dance Complex are an extension of Cubanizate!
