Dance Flamenco with Passion

Confidence 

Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced dancer!

Does any of this sound FAMILIAR?


* I hear the strum of the flamenco guitar and the singer's "quejío" (ay, ay, aaaayyyy) and MY HEART STIRS


* I've always DREAMED of dancing flamenco but WONDER IF IT'S TOO LATE TO LEARN.


* I've BEEN AWAY from flamenco for many years and I'm finally READY TO DEDICATE MYSELF to dancing again but DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.


* I've been taking flamenco dance lessons for years and have learned many choreographies but STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND how it works and I feel like I'VE WASTED MY TIME!


* I still can't COORDINATE MY BODY and get LOST IN THE COMPAS (RYTHM).


* I love dancing flamenco so much and feel GREAT while dancing, but I'm shocked to see that I LOOK BLAND ON VIDEO.

If so, you are not alone!


These are common frustrations for so many would-be AND experienced flamenco dancers!

The Online Flamenco Studio covers all of this and MORE!

  • Dance flamenco with your entire Mind, Body & Soul- without *just* repeating rote choreographies?

Why choose the Online Flamenco Studio?


THOUSANDS of dancers from ALL OVER THE WORLD have danced with me online since I started back in 2015!!


Making the complicated world of flamenco easy to understand and digest is my super power! 


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!


The entire program inside the Online Flamenco Studio focuses on keeping it strong and simple, so you can dance your best, most expressive self.


Of course, all dancers need technique like a strong core, articulate feet, fluid arms and solid turns. But what comes BEFORE that are CORAJE (courage), CORAZON (heart), and COMPAS (rhythm).


And this is for ALL dancers! Newbies, experienced, young, mature, tall, short, thin, curvy.


CORAJE (courage)

Especially if you're staring flamenco as an adult, you need ALOT of courage. The courage to start something new. The courage to make mistakes. The courage to take up space and stand up and be seen. This last point is so important because flamenco is all about being expressive, open and raw. And it takes courage to dig in deep and share that!


CORAZON (heart)

Our ultimate goal as dancers is to be able to dance with aire, achieve the state of duende, dance with expressiveness and confidence. THIS is dancing with your heart. Dancing from the heart starts with getting in touch with how we want to FEEL while dancing and how we want to feel about ourselves as dancers. Then it extends to the aire of the attitude of the particular palo (rhythm) we're dancing.


COMPAS (rhythm)

The compás is EVERYTHING in flamenco. Without having the rhythm, the beat, the actual HEARTBEAT of flamenco in our bodies-- there is no dancing, just flailing!


So, we start with those three elements AND we learn how to DANCE, DANCE, DANCE with our entire MIND, BODY & SOUL, because we know that flamenco isn’t just learning a bunch of steps!


💋 And we remember to always KISS like a flamenco! Keep It Strong & Simple!!

Love From Our Dancers

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 over 25 years. I've also been training dancers for close to 20 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 reveal 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 2015, thousands of dancers from all over the world have unleashed their flamenca with me in the Online Flamenco Studio. I hope you will join us.
