Letty is a choreographer, mother, whole hearted thinker and doer.  She fell in love with text watching her mother type radio ads for a penny a word, and with movement the moment she began demanding ballet lessons (and nothing else for weeks on end) at the age of three.  Her work is deeply informed by her immersion in and through hospice nursing, the Offices of Epidemiology and Disease Control, and the inner city classroom.

Her choreography has been commissioned by Miami Light Project, the Adrienne Arsht Center, the City of Miami Beach, and Broward Community College, and has been shown throughout South Florida and at Dance Theater Workshop (now NY Live Arts) in NY.  She is a four-time recipient of the Miami-Dade Choreographer Fellowship (2008, 2010, 2011, 2012), a National Endowment for the Arts dance writing fellowship, Artist Access grant, and was the inaugural artist for the Movement Research Exchange between Tigertail Productions and Movement Research.   She has had the privilege of working with beautiful, incredibly accomplished collaborators including, dance/theater artists, Ilana Reynolds, Shaneeka Harrell, Ivonne Batanero, Cristina Masdueño, and Grettel Trujillo; image makers, Lydia-Bittner-Baird, Laura Luna, and Carmen Cothern; and musicians, Gema Corredera and Daniel Bernard Roumain.

Her passion for helping others pursue their artistic vocation has led her to roles in arts leadership, first as Director of Programs and Operations for Arts for Learning, the Miami affiliate of Young Audiences where she worked with 100 local artists and educators to reach more than 10,000 young people each year.  And, most recently, in her role as Director of Artistic Programs at the National YoungArts Foundation,  where she had the honor of working with photographer and VP, Lisa Leone to connect some of the country's most promising 15-18 year-old artists to mentors, master artists, and artistic heroes.

She is a native to Miami; the daughter of Cuban exiles;  and graduate of New World School of the Arts High School.
