Become the Flamenco Dancer You DREAM of Being

Whether you're a complete beginner or an 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 but wonder if it's too late to learn. You've been away from flamenco for many years and you are finally READY TO DEDICATE YOURSELF to dancing again but don't know where to start. Perhaps you've been taking flamenco dance lessons for years but STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND how it works and feel like you've wasted your time! Maybe you still don't seem to be able to COORDINATE YOUR BODY, feel the COMPAS and look even BLAND when you see yourself on video.

Then are you READY to...

  • Dance flamenco with your entire Mind, Body & Soul- without *just* repeating rote choreographies?
  • Dance flamenco with passion and confidence no matter your age, current level of experience or size?
  • Get the compás IN your bones?
  • Stop wasting time learning a bunch of complicated material that just comes out sloppy?
  • Focus on KISS-ing like a flamenco and keeping it simple and strong?
  • Let go of the flamenco drama and be a part of a supportive and thriving environment?

Whether you're just starting out or you've been dancing for years, 

you, too, can dance with your entire Mind, Body & Soul!

What does that even mean?


The MIND part of flamenco is all the intellectual learning like understanding the structure of a dance, recognizing the different palos (rhythms)- the stuff you need to be able to dance confidently with live musicians.

The BODY OF FLAMENCO is where we use the body. Impeccable technique, upper body, footwork, turns, strength, coordination, stamina. You get the idea. 

The last element is the SOUL OF FLAMENCO.

This is, I think, the most crucial element of dancing flamenco. It’s the difference between watching a highly trained yet spiritless dancer vs. a dancer with less finesse but is absolutely captivating.

The word for that dancer is that she has aire or duende, which means the quality of passion, inspiration and most of all CONFIDENCE. This really comes from having the courage to show up and allow ourselves to be seen, being brave and vulnerable at the same time.

But where to start if you never have?


How to progress if you’ve stalled in your learning journey?

No matter if you’re a new beginner or an advanced dancer, we start with the HEARTBEAT of flamenco, the compásthe rhythm.

Then we move on to how do we want to FEEL while dancing. This has to do with getting in touch with the aire or the attitude of the particular palo (rhythm) we’re dancing, but also how we want to feel as dancers. Which bring us to......

Finally, and most importantly, we tap into our own personal COURAGE so we can allow ourselves to pursue our passion and STAND UP AND BE SEEN!

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!

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 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 2015, 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.
