DANCER & INSTRUCTOR
Dance will forever be one of my greatest loves.
I started dancing at a very young age and then, as a teen, was accepted into the prestigious New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. There, I furthered my training in ballet, modern dance and classical Spanish dance.
Although I enjoy and am experienced in various styles of dance, flamenco is my favorite. When I was re-introduced to this style in 2006, I began to truly understand its complexities. A flamenco dancer must have a deep understanding of the music, the singing, the structure and how these elements work together, in order to be able to dance freely and improvise.
I have travelled to Spain to study with some of the world's top flamenco dancers, including the legendary Juana Amaya.
I consider myself a lifelong student of flamenco and plan to continue learning and exploring this beautiful art and culture.
Dancing has given me the opportunity to perform on stages all across the U.S. including The Today Show,
The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Latin Billboard Awards and American Idol. I have also performed at The Ford Theater in Los Angeles and was a flamenco soloist in Debbie Allen's Hot Chocolate Nutcracker.
