About Me (human/individual)/interests, work..short bio/ THis is the most important. It is the only way to know that you are not a SPAMBOT!Be generous!
I am a Queer Xicana-Tejana, choreographer, educator, and collaborator working with relational aesthetics, movement, digital media, networked, and physical spaces. I have an M.F.A. in choreography from Jacksonville University/White Oak and a B.F.A. in performance and choreography from Ohio State University.

I am a founding member of FARO (Facilitating Artistic Research and Ontologies) which is a network of scholar-artists-activists on the margins of academia, dance/somatics, and performance. We are interested in facilitating online, networked opportunities and events for practice as research, peer review, publications, panels, and performance. Currently I am working on developing dance and movement modalities for work with embodied trauma amongst the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities, for which I am pursuing a Masters of Clinical Counseling, and somatic trauma therapy training.

I utilize platforms such as text/writing, film, theater and networked online spaces for expanded understandings of dance. In 2016 I debuted my experimental documentary film 'Queer Be-Longing" as an augmented reality film at Luminaria Contemporary Art Festival. In 2017 the film was presented at the Gloria Anzaldúa Conference El Mundo Zurdo. In 2019 I was a resident at the Cucalorus Dance Makers Retreat and was invited to present "Queer Be-Longing" at the Queering the Somatic: Interrupting the Narrative' Symposium at Middlesex University, London.

My work focuses on creating dialogue between artists of different modes and practices to encourage broader ideas of art and art-making. Over the last three years, I have expanded my practice beyond performance and directing, to include writing on dance. In 2017 I presented my personal study on the use of social media as a tool for dance education at the National Dance Education Organization Conference. Ortega’s article, Corporeal Narrative; Queering Contemporary Dance in San Antonio Towards Voices of Color was recently published in Texas Arts & Culture Magazine. I have spent the last year organizing, curating, and planning the festival Decolonizing Dance: Celebrating Bodies of Color, before it was canceled by COVID-19. I am adapting, crying, re-learning, resting, and staying alive.

Hi Amber!

Yes, you're right, it's totally confusing sometimes, I also got the time wrong than. Well 17h Berlin time should work, too I think ;) At least, we try!

Good night (at least here for us :)),
