Ever since I obsessively read the book, "French Dirt," when I was a young-gun, I said that I wanted to visit the South of France in the summertime. I did! For almost five weeks I taught across the Basque and Midi-Pyrénées regions to Côte d'Azur. My trip finished in colorful Lisbon, Portugal, with a weekend intensive full of 26 international movement enthusiasts. I didn't have a chance to meet Branko (one of my favorite DJs of Kuduro, Afro-House, and everything funky who calls Lisbon home) so…next time.
