Here I studied master classes with Milagros Menjíbar, ( bata de cola ) Isabel Bayón, Javier Barón and Manolo Soler. Also, I Studied intensively with Juana Amaya, at her school in Seville.

  • In 2003, I worked in a dance company in Mallorca, (Spain) in five star hotel music venues.

  • In 2005 to 2008, I returned to Spain and worked with my teacher, Paqui Ferrer, in her flamenco group in Menorca, (Spain) where, I had the opportunity to dance in the Traviatta opera production with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. Also, I performed at the Cuidadella theatre, five star hotels and at music venues within the island.

  • In 2009, I moved to Jerez, ( birth place of flamenco art and dance ) where, I worked, studied dance and lived with my partner Paco Lara, renowned flamenco guitarist.
