Interview with Samantha Cameron, Tú Mismo magazine
Excerpt from interview:
You clearly saw that you could join dance with yoga, and created Shakti Dance?
Yes, Shakti Dance is my creation. The first dances began in 2008, slowly at first, I had my fears. They began simply, with some asanas, all very firmly established. The choice of music is very important to me. If I do not I connect emotionally to the music, it is very difficult to create interesting choreography. It can be classical music, modern jazz or popular songs, from countries like Spain, South America, also in Europe … I love it all! Songs with lyrics or instrumental, everything is useful. Music expresses emotions so well.
