About Magdalena


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.
