Yvonne can’t remember a time when she wasn’t listening to music. Raised on the 331/3 RPM records of her pianist mother, she knew at an early age that music and movement should go together. Already exposed to classical music and popular American musicals, she began to explore the international options at her local public libraries. In almost no time, she became captivated by the music of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and India. However, she still knew that there were types of specific dances related to the musical cultures of these regions and that she had to find them.
