Podcast 145 - Violeta GalagaRza. Spanish Harlem teen motherhood to dancing in 'In The Heights' (the film).
Welcome to episode 145 of the DanceSpeak podcast with Violeta Galagarza (In The Heights, Grand Theft Auto, the Latin Grammys). Violet is a forever dancer, choreographer, and founder of a non-profit dance company, KR3Ts, which plays a major role in the bridge between underground and industry dancers in New York City.
Violet and KR3Ts have come up in loads of episodes here (if you re-listen or go back into the library, you'll NOTICE), and it is long overdue to have the woman herself come on and tell it like it is. Get ready for a story that exceeds what fiction can ever do. Violet lives hip hop; she lives the melting pot that NYC is; she lives what it is to be a strong Latina woman... we laugh, we reminisce, and I get REEALLL INSPIRED. I can't wait for you to hear the full story for yourself!
