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 preserving through audiovisual media our traditional flamenco rites, many of which are in danger of extinction. 

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