The Studio

"Linda is an amazing and giving teacher. She always seems to be able to tune in on what I specifically need from a class at any given moment and she takes the time to focus on that need. She has helped me get in touch with what Flamenco means to me and in so doing, has helped me become a stronger and much more emotive dancer, in a short amount of time. I was already a professional dancer with many years of training, but I felt like something was lacking from my dancing, keeping me from getting to the next level. Thanks to Linda, I've become braver onstage; I'm more willing to let my emotions show and thus tell a story when I dance. I am getting much more positive response from audiences and colleagues alike, which goes to remind me that although technique and choreography are important, the beauty of Flamenco and the thing that attracted me to it in the first place, is the raw emotion behind it. Linda's classes serve as a reminder of that. I always feel that going to her class is like going to a meditation class where I tap into my Flamenco roots."    Mercedes The Gatehouse Studio at Ranchito Hi Yan Ka was built from river rock in the early 1920's. It is a rustic, hillside retreat where you can learn the art of flamenco dance in a nurturing environment. The studio boasts a specially constructed wooden floor, built to enhance the dancer's 'taconeo' or footwork. The studio is located just north of Glendale and west of Pasadena, within the City limits of Los Angeles.
