I have been playing the piano since I was young. I have a special love of Spanish music, both classical and Flamenco, but I also play Bach every day. I began to perform Flamenco as a dancer and percussionist about 25 years ago. For 18 years, I produced the internationally touring Dance on Camera Festival, the pre-eminent dance film festival produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. As a writer, I have been published in over 15 publications. Currently, I write for The Dance Enthusiast, an on-line web magazine, and Eye on the Arts. Since 2004, I have taught dance in the 5 boroughs through City Center in the public school system so I am happy to teach children and adults of all ages.
Celia Ipiotis & Jeff Bush's cable show Eye on Dance continues its presence on-line through music/theatre/dance reviews on its website.

ACMP — The Chamber Music Network is a non-profit organization that facilitates informal music-making by people of all ages and nationalities, from beginners to professionals. Founded as a non-profit organization in 1947, ACMP, originally the Amateur Chamber Music Players, was the idea of Leonard Strauss, an American businessman whose work frequently included travel. Tired of practicing alone in hotel rooms, he dreamed of a network of musicians who could contact each other for chamber music sessions while at home or “on the road.”
