Flamenco Dancer, Choreographer and Teacher.

I've been teaching Flamenco dance in The UK and Spain for over 17 years and I'm passionate about communicating this powerful yet mysterious art form to students.

I run my own Flamenco school in the UK where I teach regular classes from beginners to advanced level as well as teaching workshops in schools and colleges throughout the UK. I want to share some of the secrets of Flamenco dance that are rarely taught and yet essential to understand.

I first started creating Flamenco tutorial DVDs and downloads in 2000 in response to students who wanted to be able to remember and practice steps at home. Due to the fantastic feedback and visible results, I wanted to offer a new series of lessons that more people could enjoy.

I have my own Flamenco company, Tormenta Flamenca, and we have performed throughout the world from Madrid to Marrakesh, Barcelona to Qatar.
