Hello, my name is Gaby. I am a graduate of the Ph.D program in Critical Dance Studies from the University of California at Riverside. I describe myself as a folklorista because I am fully engaged in the research and teaching of Mexican folkloric dance. Ever since beginning my graduate degree, I view folkloric dance with an entirely different perspective. I decided to start this blog because I realize that the traditional method of research, writing, and publishing takes years. Although I am currently submitting articles to journals and have begun a book project, this blog is another way to share my ideas. I will be blogging at least once a month. Please share with me your comments in a constructive manner. Thanks!
