¡Hola! I'm Rina Orellana and I created this Online Flamenco Studio just for you!
I've been a professional flamenco dancer for close to 20 years and have had my own dance academy in Los Angeles, California for the last 12 years. There I've trained many dancers from beginners looking for a fun community and workout all the way to training dancers to perform on their own in tablaos.
You can find out more about me, my company and academy at www.RinaOrellanaFlamenco.com
I love, love, love teaching flamenco dance. Flamenco can be such a crazy puzzle if you weren't lucky enough to be born into it. But I take great pleasure in breaking down the mysteries of flamenco into easy to understand elements. It's such an amazing experience watching my dancers get into their bodies, understand the rhythm and movement and then allow it to unleash their inner flamenco beast!
After many years of receiving messages from people lamenting that they couldn't study with me because of where they lived, I created free online flamenco dance lessons.
They were a great success and they wanted more. As in, everything that I teach in the dance studio, they wanted online.
So, I created this Online Flamenco Studio for them and for you. It's my hope that you can scratch that flamenco itch here whether it's a daily practice of technique or learning a complete choreography.
With your membership to the Online Flamenco Studio you have access to dozens of videos in technique and choreography including bata de cola (long train dress), manton (shawl) and abanico (fan). You can ask questions about the videos through each comment section, too!
