I want to thank each one of you deeply for all that you contributed to the show, your artistry, your time, your friendship, patience and understanding hard times, sharing good ones and being here for this whole experience with me and with each other.
We have created something very special, magical that I hope we keep taking in many other parts of the world! Paris, NYC, Rome… and more!
I do believe this show is a new page for the Arts because it is original, committed, powerful, a fusion of many different art forms and dance styles, and very very actual and contemporary.
It is especially a change in my artistic life because I stepped up a notch and would have not been able to say all this without every single one of you. So thank you for being part of this growth!!
