Become The Flamenco Dancer You DREAM Of Being
Whether you're a complete beginner or experienced dancer!
Does this sound like YOU?
You hear the strum of the flamenco guitar and the singer's "quejío" (ay, ay, aaaayyyy) and your heart stirs. You've always dreamed of dancing flamenco because you are drawn to the passion and intensity. Or maybe you've been away from flamenco for many years and are ready to dedicate yourself again to dancing. Perhaps you've been taking flamenco dance lessons for years but still don't understand how it works!
Plus, you want to learn it on your own time but still with a community.
Any of this true? Then IMAGINE if you could...
Whether you're just starting out or you've been dancing for years,
you, too, can dance with PASSION, CONFIDENCE & ABANDON!
With these three fundamentals of Flamenco:
We start with the HEARTBEAT of flamenco, the compás, the rhythm.
Then we move on to how do we want to FEEL while dancing, and that has to do with getting in touch with the aire or the attitude of the particular palo (rhythm) we're dancing.
And finally, and most importantly, we tap into our own personal COURAGE so we can allow ourselves to STAND UP AND BE SEEN!
THIS is how we dance with CONFIDENCE!!
Then we can DANCE, DANCE, DANCE with our entire
MIND, BODY & SOUL
---because we know that flamenco isn't just learning a bunch of steps!
This is what other dancers say...
Hola, I'm Rina Orellana!
I'd love to be your flamenco teacher and mentor.
Trained in Madrid and based in Los Angeles, California, I've been dancing flamenco for 25 years. I've also been training dancers for over 15 years- from new beginners through advanced, ready to dance in tablaos.
After all these years of teaching, I've really learned what budding and seasoned dancers struggle with. And I say NO more imitating a bunch of steps from a choreography with no knowledge of what you're actually dancing!
I believe that dancing flamenco is a personal journey and we all have something unique to offer. I am passionate about helping dancers unleash their inner flamenca by bravely stepping up to be seen.
My goal is clarify the secret language of the art form so that you can truly dance it with confidence and self expression.
Since 2016, hundreds and hundreds of dancers from all over the world have unleashed their flamenca with me in the Online Flamenco Studio. I hope you will join us.
¡Olé! Vámanos- let's do it.
Introducing the Online Flamenco Studio
a truly comprehensive monthly membership for women to dance anytime, anywhere, at your own pace
Why learn flamenco online?
Of course, the BEST way to learn flamenco is to be LIVE in a studio setting with a good teacher.
But you may NOT HAVE flamenco near you.
Or you may want to SUPPLEMENT what you already get from your local teachers.
Either way, I know that the Online Flamenco Studio WORKS. Hundreds and hundreds of dancers have danced with me online since I started back in 2016!!
Yes, you can learn technique and choreography from your local teachers and from my online studio. But with the Online Flamenco Studio you also learn the LANGUAGE of flamenco, something that, frankly, many teachers don't teach or don't even know!

YES, YES and YES! I've taught HUNDREDS of dancers from all over the world. My specialty is focusing on teaching you HOW to learn flamenco. It's all about getting the compás (rhythm) in your muscle memory, taking one piece at a time, and truly understanding the structure of the dance. But more importantly, for you, the dancer, you must be consistent in your efforts to see any results. But that's ok because I've got your back!! PLUS you can get direct feedback from me. Just submit your video in the members only Facebook group and I will help you.
Yes! There is a New Beginner Area with three separate courses that walk you through the very first fundamentals of flamenco. They cover flamenco rhythm, marking and footwork technique as well as learning two separate choreographies. Expect to take about 4 weeks (sometimes shorter, sometimes longer) for each course if you're logging in a few times per week.
There is material in the Online Flamenco Studio to challenge advanced dancers with choreography as well as building aire and truly understanding the nuances of the music in all aspects of technique. One of the most valuable lessons are the lectures where I completely break down the structure of different palos so that you can truly understand what you're dancing and why. Plus you have access to me to offer you feedback and answer any questions you have.
