Violeta De Leon Davila

There is always a way to add movement to you project or idea!

Avid learner and explorer through dance movement, choreography and the new. Passionate in portraying and communicating through dance and performance to the community, with the hope that it will resonate beyond one moment.

Advocate of the ‘ecology of culture’ perspective, where there is an unavoidable responsibility of thinking which and how the community is benefiting from every action/creation and what and how we as artists are actively creating access to it and building a relationship with the audience, without neglecting the boundaries planet earth is signaling us.  Everything and everyone was, is and will be connected and affected by our overall actions.
