I'm a Puerto Rican professional Pole Dancer and Certified Instructor in diverse movement practices with a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I'm also a professional model, performer and actress, with film productions such as "La Granja (2015), Sol de Media Noche (2017) and Rémora (2021)".
I co-own Siluetas Pole, Body & Mind, a private home studio lead by women to offer wellness oriented movement practices for all. In my movement classes and workshops, I combine physical exercises/dance based movement with therapeutic healing approaches in order to promote embodied and integrated ways of knowing oneself and rewriting our own stories.
Whenever not teaching, performing or on screen, I work on a community outreach arts based program with the Museum for Contemporary Art.
When night falls I take new form and go by the name of Yulietta, a stage persona much like an alter ego that morphs into otherworldly characters to perform on local venues through pole dance, contortion and chair dance acts, among others.
I've developed a Neo-Burlesque style of performing where I get to showcase my passion for themes such as identity, female sexuality and representation. I perform at local sub-culture venues and I'm also available to perform for private events and cultural activities.
