this weekend, my dance group had an intensive two day workshop with my mentor rudi, the artistic director of likha-pilipino folk ensemble. it was such a great experience, albeit very tiring, and i think our tenth anniversary show will be so much better because of it.

I have met many artistic directors in my time, and the one thing that separates rudi from the rest is that he is so generous with his knowledge and creativity. this attitude is sometimes an anamoly, and is what makes him so special. he really believes that our craft is indeed folk, to be passed to those who come after.

if we never met in october of 1995, kp would not be where it is today. he has changed the face of the group, and me, forever.
