Celebrating Afro-Latino Dance & Culture

Regina Hollingshed

Originally from Charleston, SC but raised in Oah’u, Hawaii, Regina was exposed to Hawaiian Hula, Soma Siva, and Tahitian Hula dances and later choreographed for imageWahiawa Intermediate School and Leilehua High School.  Her dance venture continued with pursuit of learning Salsa, Bachata and Merengue while in Pennsylvania and Foxtrot, Rumba, Shag and the Waltz in Charleston, SC.  Her curiosities lead her to study Grecian Folk Dance at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.  Recently, Regina has studied Indian Folk Dance.  She is a member of the Charleston-based West African dance company Wona Womalan, led by Guinean Artistic Director Fode Moussa Camara. Regina joined Buen Aché in 2013 and has enjoyed a lead role as co-choreographer since that time.
