About Alfonso

Alfonso Cervera holds an MFA in Experimental Choreography from the University of California, Riverside. He is a Queer first generational Mexicano/a/x choreographer, performer, educator, curator, and activist. Along with his degree, he holds professional certifications in Asana Yoga and Reiki Healing; he has recently been elected as Executive Director of Show Box L.A. His research and specialization as an independent artist focuses on the conversation between queerness, Ballet Folklorico, and Afro-LatinX social dances in a contemporary auto-biographical embodied experience that he calls Poc-Chuc. Poc-Chuc, an emerging and inclusive dance technique developed by Cervera, weaves these techniques together as a pedagogical tool to adhere to the current times and create representation for marginalized communities.
