Sandra La Espuelita

Sandra, La Espuelita trained extensively in both England and in Spain, studying in Jerez, Seville and Cordoba. Among her teachers she can cite the legendary Mario Maya, Maria Angeles Gabaldon, Angelilta Gomez and Comen de Torres.

Sandra La Espuelita has been dancing Flamenco for nearly 20 years and has studied extensively in the UK, and in Jerez, Seville and Córdoba in Spain. Her teachers have included Mario Maya, Maria Angeles Gabaldón, Angelita Gomez and Carmen de Torres.

She performs regularly with various groups across London and the UK, and also runs her own groups, Sonido Flamenco and Flamenco Pasión.

Sandra has collaborated with Pratap Pawar in Kathak/Flamenco fusion performances such as the ‘Flames and Fire’ performance in Durham in 2005. (There are strong connections between the two dance forms, and some consider Kathak to be a source of Flamenco, transmitted through Muslim culture to Andalusia.)

Sandra is an experienced teacher of Flamenco dance and her deep love and enthusiasm for the art form show through in her classes, which are run in East London and Essex. Her pupils range in age from 5 years to 60+. They are all ages, shapes and abilities. And with her philosophy that Flamenco holds something for everyone, that's how she likes it!
