Felipe Oyarzún Moltedo of Santiago, Chile is one of Dana Tai Soon Burgess & Company's newest dancers. In addition to performing with DTSB&Co, he recently choreographed work for Joy of Motion Dance Center's Youth Dance Ensemble, a pre-collegiate program with core classes in ballet, jazz and modern.

According to Felipe, he is excited to learn movements that are different from what he is used to. "I love the idea to move my body from a different way and be part of a an excellent group of people with so much talent and love for the dance."

When asked where he sees himself or the DC dance community in 20 years, Felipe said he envisions himself teaching. "I see myself teaching new generations of dancers in a world where the dance will be unlimited. A dance without space, time and race."
