When I perform... Milteri

My name is Milteri Tucker. I'm named after both my grandmothers my Puerto Rican and New Orleans side.

I am a dancer and choreographer. I Dance Bomba, Plena, Danza, African Dance, Afro-Diaspora dances such as Afro-Cuban, Haitian and other Caribbean dances ballet, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Musical Theater, Hip Hop and Folkoreric dances.

I began singing as a young girl in school and church choirs. Began training dance since I was 11 years old in Puerto Rico. I now own and operate Bombazo Dance Co, Inc in New York.

To me, performing is sharing yourself with the audience! I feel alive, happy and I have a voice that is being heard! ~Milteri

I have a saying, You must know where you come from to know where you are going. Connecting to my roots has defined and focused my artistic purpose!
