BIOGRAPHY

Three years full of surreal adventures, successfully at a frenetic rhythm in Los Angeles, California 

Postcard with mansion's picture

Chapter 4. My first earthquake, about to fall off the ravine!

Life goes on and the mansion returned to its routine.

There were 8 boys, 2 actors among them Alex and of course they were also waiters, a producer, two scriptwriters, and 3 surfers.

In the morning everyone would leave except the surfers with whom I would play pool every morning, while the three of them were very polite, they were at my service. After telling them the drama of my life by chapters. And above all, using my woman's weapons, walking in a bikini from the pool to the kitchen and vice versa. I was obsessed with the sun, with being very dark and, if possible, all year long. Now I wear 100 spf, I go with an umbrella, and I don't sunbathe.

One of the surfers told me; we're going to Malibu, do you want to come? I replied that I was sure that they went every day and that I preferred to continue with the suitcases.

But one of them stayed in the pool with me. He looked at me like someone who saw miss ass and of course, it took him a second to ask me; Are you Brazilian? I am Spanish, you know that already...But he explained to me with that great swimmer's body and to which now I would not let him escape, that being Latino in LA was very different from being European and that many denied their origins, lying to be better accepted in the city and the whiter you are, the better .

But above all I have asked you because of how dark you are and with permission, the ass and the perfect legs that you have! You have to be a good dancer! Do you want me to teach you to surf? He was totally enthralled with me and delighted with Spain.

His girlfriend came and they left and I was alone in the pool reading the English book that I had bought to start my own classes.

I was in a chair sitting very close to the railing, which also caught my attention, because it was made of super thin and weak metal and high up to my waist, and it gave me a little scary, I looked down and almost lost my glasses It was impressive to be in front of those emblematic letters! But at night it was so foggy that you couldn't see the railing.

When suddenly, the water in the pool began to move like a breakwater, the plants and trees began to move in a surreal way, the Hollywood letters trembled as if they wanted to take off from the mountain, the surfboards flew by the ravine and everything with the soundtrack of the furniture inside moving from the site and worst of all, my chair that jumped one meter up and to the right that, thank God, I fell into the water. Because if it gets to the left, I fall down the ravine and my adventure in LA is over.

Alone in that big mansion, I ran barefoot into the street and down the hill trying to call Alex hysterical, crying and without the bikini top that I had taken off when I was left alone and there was no way to start looking for it... in that moment, the scriptwriters who were returning to the mansion passed by and stopped when they saw such an upset barefoot, with one hand covering her breasts and crying through her cell phone ... the world is ending and I almost fell down the ravine! Until I laughed nervously when the scriptwriter who was from Argentina told me, You see! This is like walking into Universal Studios and not buying a ticket! And they put me in the convertible like they were the shrinks when they took Vivian Leigh in the role of Blanche in my favorite Tenesse Williams’s movie, a streetcar called Desire.

Esther Ponce's experimental Flamenco is ready for the Valencian Director of Tourism to meet

It is very gratifying to have an idea like the experimental Flamenco in Valencia, carry it out and have managed to attract more than 20 foreign clients to Valencia in a short time and without marketing, who have passed through the Flamenco Art Center, and who have not only They learned a lot if not they have returned to their country with a better concept of Valencia.

His experience and approach to flamenco led by Esther Ponce will make you return without hesitation to the city of Turia.

You just have to read the dedications of all the foreigners who write in their precious notebook created for them and that are already adding more and more.

«They also buy semi-professional shoes and a skirt to study with me.» That’s already the best! –
~ Esther Ponce

 The foreigner is used to teaching flamenco very quickly and without discipline, anything goes, any shoe, any skirt, hanging out even parodying and even ridiculing flamenco.

With me if they want to study two private hours which is the minimum, they are given the option of buying or renting the shoes and none of them have thought twice about it to this day.
 
«Being a polyglot, doors just open up to me» –

Definitely the Experimental Flamenco of Esther Ponce has an Angel!

From England, without a doubt the most special Experimental Flamenco we have had at the Flamenco Art Center in these two and a half years.

The Esther Ponce Stylized Flamenco Art Center has been open for two and a half years. El Ángel Every August 28, for Esther’s birthday, a new foreign student gives her a gift and the flamenco toast intensifies.

«The students do not want to miss the opportunity to study with me. When they start to study my technique they are hooked at the first second. Those who play sports and take care of themselves immediately identify with my stretching and feel safer for the rest of the class and those who don’t appreciate it and will surely start practicing it and taking care of themselves forever »
~ Esther Ponce

This year Esther thought that her Angel would be very busy due to the current pandemic situation and also that it would be a coincidence that another year happened.

But to Esther’s surprise it was like that and without doubt the most special flamenco toast for England.

«Discipline is my hallmark and not even the Covid has stopped us» «I have never doubted it and I will only teach classes with a mask»
~ Esther Ponce

After the experience of teaching classes with a mask? A private flamenco class for two hours without stopping, does Esther remember that when she and the student went out into the street they breathed for two seconds as if there were no tomorrow?According to Esther’s recent experience, with the mask you cannot see the total expression of the student, but the eyes also speak and flamenco is also expressed with the body.

With all the safety measures, the student disinfected her shoes, put hydroalcoholic gel on her hands, a temperature control was performed with a non-contact forehead thermometer and the student did not remove her mask during the two hours, only in the changing room that she only used to drink water. 

“Now I can present my Experimental Flamenco to the director of Tourism of Valencia and let him roll with the little ham :)”
