We began Flamenco Bites with the intention of helping students of flamenco dance all over the world with helpful, truthful information about flamenco.
We don't just want to teach you steps, we want to help you develop strong dance technique and understand the reason why you do certain things when you dance.
We place a great emphasis on the relationship between cante, toque and baile and hope to be able to empower you as a dancer so you can get more out of every class you take and every opportunity you have to perform.
Who are we?
We are Renae and José.
Renae is a flamenco dancer from Australia who has been studying flamenco dance for nearly 20 years. She has studied and performed in Australia, the United Kingdom and Spain. Understanding how hard it can be to find good information about flamenco as a foreign student is one of the reasons that she wanted to create a website like Flamenco Bites.
José Merino is an international dance artist, teacher and choreographer.
José made his professional debut with BALLET DE MADRID led by José Granero. A former dancer with the acclaimed BALLET NACIONAL DE ESPANA, he performed the role of soloist and first-dancer for many productions and has toured extensively throughout the world. He has worked with and been a guest artist with the renowned company of Antonio Canales and the company of Karine Saporta - National Center of Normandy (France) among many others.
