Have You Been Dreaming of Visiting Spain,
and You Want Something More Exciting & Authentic than
Being Another Tourist Watching Another Flamenco Show?

 

I am Puela Lunaris. I invite you to my home country of Spain to dance under the stars during the fascinating & vibrant Flamenco Spring Rite called "Las Cruces de Mayo'' in the legendary town of Lebrija, outside of tourist circuits.

Plus, I will take you to a unique, unforgettable trip to Sevilla and you will enjoy with me and my friends the world-renowned Jerez Fair (Feria de Jerez). 

 Flamenco Cultural Immersion in Spain - Feria & Spring Rites 2024 

 Lebrija - Sevilla - April 28-May 5
Jerez Fair - May 5-12 

 Yes. You can have both!

Week 1: Lebrija - Sevilla - April 28-May 5

Dance Under the Stars with Me & My Friends
in the Flamenco Town of Lebrija (Spain)

Las Cruces de Mayo is a time-honored spring rite of pre-Christian origins. In ancient times, it was dedicated to divinities such as the goddess Maya and the god Dionysus. Then, it was Christianized and later forbidden by the church. This unique spring rite has survived in Lebrija (Spain) for centuries against all odds. Now, we celebrate it by singing and dancing Sevillanas Corraleras, under the stars, all night long. 

Crosses all over town are beautifully garlanded with flowers. I invite you to join in, singing & dancing through the streets from cross to cross, along with my friends in Lebrija. When we arrive to a cross, we are welcome by the neighbors, we bring the joy of our presence, our dancing, our clapping. We have fun together... Then, we move on to another cross to continue sharing that joy!

No professional skills are needed to participate. During this cultural immersion, you learn to dance, sing and clap the traditional Sevillanas Corraleras. It is so much fun!

Who Is Your Guide?


¡Hola! I am Puela Lunaris, dance educator, flamenco cultural consultant,
 multimedia producer, and the founder of Raíces Flamencas, a program devoted to safeguarding aspects of flamenco in danger of extinction.

I created these Flamenco Cultural Immersion Experiences to satisfy the desire to taste flamenco as a living culture, as we Spaniards experience it through our rites & celebrations, which is different from what you see on the stage and usually not available to foreigners.

I have earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language & Culture and Dance Education from the State University of New York (SUNY) and a Master of Science in Digital Media from New York University (NYU). Most importantly, since 2004,  I have  been researching and safeguarding through audiovisual media our traditional flamenco rites, many of which are almost gone from the face of the earth.

Now, I am opening the doors to these unforgettable life experiences, to share with wonderful people like yourself the magic of my culture.
