Has been practicing Contact Improvisation since 1999 and has studied with leading CI teachers including K.J. Holmes, Tim O’Donnell, and Ray Chung. A founding member of Danza Contacto Puerto Rico (DCPR), Veronica has been teaching CI for over 10 years in places such as Washington, New York, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico. Currently living in New York City, in 2018 she co-taught with Michelle Arieh a weekly Pre-Jam class at 100 Grand Dance on Tuesday evenings. She travels often to Puerto Rico to teach and coordinate jams, workshops and other events with DCPR. 

Significant teachers
I am very grateful to have learned from many teachers of various dance disciplines throughout my life. Most influential during my formative years were: K.J. Holmes, David Dorfman, Doug Elkins, Vicky Shick, Viveca Vázquez and Myrna Renaud. In more recent years: Meredith Monk, Tim O'Donnell, Daniel Lepkoff, Ray Chung and Lisa Nelson; not to mention the many people in countless jams with whom I have been able to dance and grow in my practice.
