A descendant of classical ethnic dancers on both branches of her family tree and was trained by dance professionals in the Hawaii Public Schools and later in dance academies in California, New York and Madrid. She is the protégé of Rosa Durán of Jerez and Madrid and inherited her lineage choreographies in Jondo-Flamenco from the teachings of El Estampí­o, Angel Pericet, and El Marruro. She trained in the traditional art with Teresita Osta, Lupe del Rio, Maria Magdalena, Rosa Montoya, Tosa Niki (under Pilar Lopez), La Tati, Rafael de Córdova, Teo Morca, and Paco Romero.

Saludos! There will be some changes to my current classes beginning immediately. We are consolidating and solidifying the levels of some classes, to offer the student a more effective and satisfying experience. We feel a workshop style class will be more fun and enriching as well as less expensive!

Wednesday evening classes at City Ballet Studio are discontinued effective immediately.

From April 13- May 3 there will be no Tuesday classes, as I am taking a break. (If you have classes left on your cards, you can apply them to the upcoming workshop.)

Tuesday night classes at the SF Dance Center will begin in a new format of workshop only, running in 8-week sessions. The next Workshop begins on Tuesday, May 11 - June 29. I will be offering some new classes at all levels and encourage my students to send me their thoughts or requests. These classes will also take place on the 5th Floor studio at SF Dance Center, not the 3rd Floor Studio.

The Saturday Ashkenaz Workshop remains unchanged and the current workshop runs to Saturday, April 24. The next session starts on May 1- June 19, for Level 1 Beginners and Level 11 Intermediate students.

This course will also include the explanation of basic handclaps or palmas so we can give each other rhythmic accompaniment. This 3 week series of 75 minute classes costs $56.30.
