Risa Arisue

DANCER

Watching Risa dance is truly akin to viewing jazz in motion. She is masterful at integrating techniques from her classical training, into her signature jazz style.

 

She agreed to perform her interpretation of the first single for this project, through dance.  We are excited to share her artistic contribution, which has been captured in the video produced for the first single, "America: My Country Tis' of Thee".

We are handing the reigns over to this master dance instructor and choreographer for several songs on this project.

Risa is the manager of Hama's Dance Studio, located in Studio City, CA.  For additional details, connect with her via social media:

When it comes to talent, the arsenal of this artist is on constant overflow. She graciously agreed to create and perform a poem for a spoken word version of the first release for Homeland Swingin'.

Her bustling portfolio of accomplishments as a writer include the publication of seven books and thousands of articles.

We would need an entire website to document her accomplishments as an author, activist and spiritual coach.   For more about this incredible artist, click here to visit her website.
