Zabor is a teaching method based on the integration of multiple perspectives of partner dance instruction which I consider to be equally important to the proper development and formation of a great dancer. I place just as much emphasis on understanding history, musicality, and the cultural value of each dance as I do on the technique of movement.
What began in 2000 as my personal project has solidified into a comprehensive method of teaching, that has become the foundation of what is now recognized as Zabor Dance. The name Zabor is a combination of three important facets that define my philosophy. These are based on two Spanish words, saber and sabor, and the English word zest.
Zabor represents the knowledge of connection, the flavor of music, and the zest for sharing a moment.
