“Clara’s flamenco classes are everything you expect, and more, from a passionate dancer, creative choreographer, and excellent teacher. You get a glimpse of her talents right from the get-go during the warm-up, all the way through the technique section and then through to the choreography. Clara’s classes are both fun and challenging. She is keenly aware of her students’ proficiency levels, and is generous and specific in her guidance and help. I look forward with great anticipation to every one of my classes with Clara.” -Maha
“I just have to rave about Clara’s teaching. After being a flamenco teacher myself for 20 years it’s great to be able to TAKE class! She keeps me in shape, keeps me up on the latest moves, and her choreographies with details of how to pull em off really works.” -Andrea
“Clara is an inspiration to me from the moment I saw her dance. She glides her arms and body as though she is unhindered by the structure. She coaches her students with ease and grace flowing though the movements step by step, allowing the student to access the steps easily. Thank you Clare for your graceful energy as well as your artistic profound Flamenco teachings” -Sianna
“My greatest enjoyment in studying with Clara is the greater understanding I am provided of flamenco’s structure and nuances. In studying with this excellent teacher, I am assured the attention needed to enhance technique, absorb choreography and present it in a manner worthy of this beautiful dance form.” -Jade
“Having Clara as a dance teacher who also knows how to sing makes my learning experience easier and incredibly fun. Clara is not only a patient and noble teacher but she is highly knowledgeable about the physics and mechanics of the body. She doesn’t only know how the body moves and should move to avoid bad habits and/or injuries, but she also knows the verbal language to explain. This way, she is able to use different methodologies…She shares as much as she can with her classes, and she is positive, meticulous, sweet and super fun. Clara is an inspiration to me and I feel very lucky to learn so much from her. She is an excellent teacher and she is only getting better at it.” -Sandra
