Ana has been performing and teaching in the Seattle and Bellevue areas for over a decade. She teaches all levels, from very beginning to professional, and her students range in age from 5 years old through adults.

Known as one of the West Coast’s foremost female flamenco dancers Ana has been acclaimed as brilliant and charismatic, moving with grace and elegance, especially the upper torso, arms and hands which so defines the female flamenco dancer, yet at the same time containing that tension and passion which makes flamenco so exciting. Ana is known for her incredible rhythm and has been called a ‘master’ of rhythm, both with her palmas (percussive clapping) and with her footwork.

Ana currently performs, teaches and produces student shows out of her studio Flamenco Danzarte.
