From School Teacher to Flamenco Dancer.

I get asked a lot if dancing Flamenco is my only job. And I answer proudly, yes, yes it is. It is not my side hustle, I’m no hustler…I’m an artist and I respect this art and this lifestyle completey, in the good and in the bad. It’s been this way since I was 25 and I left my job as a school teacher. It was scary to say the least, but it also felt like the only logical choice. I had a job with benefits, a cute apt. in Echo Park, a man I loved, and the support of family…until I didn’t. Funny how following your dreams and putting yourself first as a Women of Color can feel so threatening to some and trigger such a backlash?! That’s when I understood that following your heart is revolutionary. I remembered the 9 year old child in me who knew that dance would be her life and I just couldn’t let her down. I could not imagine doing something that I didn’t love, that wasn’t actually my life calling, my soul’s purpose. The commitment to my dreams is all I feel I really have, it’s what I know makes me more than a working machine trying to survive. Dreams for me are like oxygen. I keep them alive and they keep me alive. It takes courage and sacrifice but also remember that dreams have a life of their own and if you let them they will guide you and transform you!

THE FLAMENCO TABLAO is the most intimate and authentic way to experience Flamenco. The word “tablao” refers to the wood that we so passionately dance on as well as the place where flamenco is performed in it’s most powerful manifestation, in this case, the Bootleg Theater, a hidden gem in the heart of Los Angeles.
