Maura Garcia


Maura García (non-enrolled Cherokee/Mattamuskeet) is a dancer, choreographer and erotic artist. Her vibrant creations channel the sensual rhythms of the natural world and inspire people to liberate themselves. She makes original work and collaborates with other creatives and clients to produce: new dance works, music videos, theatre productions, fashion shows, sex shows, live music shows, private performances and erotic print art.

At the root, Maura's luscious work is powered by a desire to bring ancestral wisdom to life, to respect the living earth and to bring happiness to people.
