Yolanda’s ambitious desire to explore dance was set into motion in 1998, when she found her first teacher right in her hometown of Portales New Mexico, San Diego's Lorelei Taylor. She has since dedicated over 10 transformational years studying yoga and ethnic dance. Yolanda is a certified yoga instructor and a current yoga & belly dance teacher at Eastern New Mexico University, Health & Physical Education Dept. and at S-W School of Dance, LLC in Portales. Yolanda has twice traveled abroad to Bali, Indonesia to study Balinese dancing and has taught a Spanish and Gypsy style workshop at Bali Spirit Yoga Studio there, as well as adding special performances around the island. Yolanda attends the Middle Eastern Music & Dance camp every summer where she continues her knowledge with the top international Middle Eastern artist master teachers. She also continues networking with and supporting related workshops held here in New Mexico with her dance troupe Fusion Funk Collective an ENMU student organization. Yolanda has taught a Bollywood Class and performed with her troupe at Origins:Evolution 2012 in Roswell, NM with other featured belly dance instructors from New Mexico and Texas. This outstanding performance lead to East Meets West 3 "A World Dance Celebration" show (ABQ,NM), where they shared the stage with 60 other dancers including Grammy Winner Souhail Kaspar! Yolanda's dance classes are designed with your bodies’ health and vitality in mind. She creates a warm, fun, healthier community environment that is a wonderful blend of both playful and sacred atmospheres.
