Flamenco Dance

Ana La China

Europe | Dance

Flamenco dance allows for the exploration and development of the body’s expressive capacities and helps us to feel the life force we all have but do not always have access to.  Classes combine precision and pleasure as students learn the different styles that make up flamenco.  They are also divided into different parts: technique (warm-up, rhythms and posture) followed by the development of steps and choreography.  The aims of the class are to have a better awareness of the body, to acquire a new style of expression and of course, to experience the joy of dance.

Having taught within the framework of the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie for fifteen years, Ana la China has trained a number of students, some of whom have become professional dancers.


Ana la China began her dance training in Seville with Manolo Marin and Angelita Vargas. In 1992 she moved to Granada, where she began working with Alfredo Iago, Juan Carmona and Chicharrito. She performed in numerous shows with these prominent artists, both in Spain and internationally. During this period, she also collaborated with several other important musicians from Granada: Rafael Habichuela, Antonio Solera, Jaime Heredia, Pedro Carmona and Miguel Angel Cortes, with whom she performed in the festival “Noche del Albaicin” in Pena de la Plateria, at the Casa Patas de Madrid, as well as in France, Portugal, Switzerland and Italy.

In 1993, she collaborated with singers Antonio and Manuel Malenea, as well as the Jerez musicians, Luis de la Tota and Domingo Rubichi. Working together, they produced “La Route Tzigane”, performed in France and in Hong Kong with the Rajasthani group Manganyiar and Taraf de Haidouk from Romania. The next show was “De Bénarès à Jerez”, an encounter between kathak and flamenco, with the dancer Ravi Shankar Mishra.

Now based in Geneva, Ana la China teaches flamenco dance within the framework of the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie, as well as in France.
