When not teaching, performing, or choreographing, Magdalena can be found dancing "por fiesta" on the streets of her
second home in Seville, Spain.
In the mid 90’s Magdalena helped revive the NYC
Flamenco scene, cutting her teeth on stage at local
Manhattan venues such as Alegrías, Ñ, Kaña and Xunta.
Since then she has performed with dance companies and
taught Visiting Artist workshops across the U.S.
Inspired by her own first mentors, Magdalena is best known for her traditional style which focuses on the grace, majesty, rhythm and musicality of Flamenco. She integrates her unique artistic
and educational training into an exciting study program for
people of all ages and backgrounds.
Magdalena has been inspiring audience members and students
alike for over 25 years. She has been awarded grants by
The Field and Fractured Atlas for her work as an individual
performing artist. Magdalena is a teacher at heart, dedicated
to students and the excitement and process of learning.
