As a priest of Yemaya in the Santeria religion, Tony Domenech is frequently called upon to dance for Yemaya. Tony began singing, dancing, and acting in school performances at an early age and was involved with various off-Broadway theater companies such as TADA and AMAS, which brought him to start freelancing as a dancer and singer for community and social events. He studied Afro-Cuban folkloric dance with Xiomara Rodriguez, Rita Macias and the late great Pupy Insua. One of Tony’s notable performances was dancing onstage as Shango with the great Latin Jazz artist, Bobby Sanabria. Tony is also co-director of SalsAshé, which combines Afro Cuban dance and salsa who has presented work at the NJ and NY Salsa Congresses for the last 9 years.
