On this episode of The Good Foot Podcast, co-hosts Jazelynn "Jaz" Goudy and Quilan "Cue" Arnold interview Lorena "LorenaV" Valenzuela-- a practitioner and teacher of the dance form, Whacking/Waacking.
We explore the work it takes for a dancer to genuinely showcase their soul through movement, and how Waacking's story provides some key blueprints for that work.
