Aurora Reyes has been teaching group children's classes for 30 years. Through Flamenco Latino's former Manhattan Studio, Young Audiences of NY, Community Arts, and most recently Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL), she has lengthy experience with all grade levels:
- K-Grade 2
- Grades 3-5
- Grades 6-9
- Grades 10-12
The classes at JCAL were also mother-daughter. Currently we are offering group classes online through Zoom. Aurora also teaches rumba flamenco combined with salsa/mambo.
The photos below reflect Aurora Reyes' work with Partner Sites at Uptown Dance Academy in East Harlem and Once Upon A Time in Richmond Hills, Queens. These classes have explored the historical relationship between the flamenco art form and influences from Latino cultures known as la ida y vuelta
(“round trip”) forms.
Recitals are planned in conjunction with parents who want to get involved. Aurora encourages the most talented students to take part other performing opportunities, such as the Feria in the spring and outdoor park performances. Tatiana Green (pictured below), was a student of Aurora Reyes at Partner Site Uptown Dance Academy from 1999-2006. Tatiana went on to get a degree at Adelphi University, and later taught for Flamenco Latino at other Partner Sites, as well as performed with the professional company.
