Casa Flamenca [Albuquerque, NM] focuses on preserving flamenco as a language. It is important to be able to understand the heritage and oral traditions of flamenco as a cultural art. Using a structured method and codified terminology, it becomes easier for the student to master the language of dynamic calls and signals which aid in the creation of both flamenco choreography and original music. Passing on this language of flamenco, Casa Flamenca helps establish a community that can continue educating others.

Juani de la Isla’s recording career includes participation on more than 100 albums with some of Spain’s finest ‪flamenco artists including ‪Jose Mercé, ‪Joaquin Sabína, ‪Paco Ortega, El Barrio and David de María. In 2015, he released his first solo CD “Libertad en Mis Manos.”

Valeria "La Chispa" Montes serves as Executive and Artistic Director of Casa Flamenca in Albuquerque, NM where she is also a full-time instructor. She has studied with the legendary Farruco Family, Carmen Ledesma, Concha Vargas, Miguel Vargas, and has studied cante flamenco [singing] with Esperanza Fernandez, which she feels is vital for dancers to do in order to understand the art form in a more profound way.
