"Debra's classes at Escuela Jaleo provide an encouraging environment in which to learn the beautiful movements of flamenco. In every series of classes, Debra works with the students at each level to choreograph a dance that we can successfully perform. It felt so rewarding to master a Sevillanas dance only three months after I started studying flamenco!"
"I love going to the class! I admire the teacher, Debra, and her passion about Flamenco dance. She is an experienced teacher and dancer."
"I enjoyed very much Pablo's workshop. He brought richness of Spanish culture, passion of Flamenco dance. Being proud of his own culture, dance with a great pride and attitude (in a good way). I especially love the technique part that is very helpful."
"I have been traveling from West Virginia since January 2014 to begin flamenco instruction with Debra. The journey has certainly been worth the reward, which is the excellent instruction in technique and the excitement of choreography. I have also had the pleasure and distinct honor of attending two workshops with Pablo Rodarte, which only furthers my determination to learn this dance that I love so much. Bravo, Debra, for making my dream come true!"
"Flamenco to me is synonym of strength and passion. That is exactly what I've found participating in Debra's workshops. I am only a beginner and her choreographies are challenging in the most satisfying way! I leave her class feeling accomplished."
"Debra, you are the number one in playing castanets in the entire DC area."
"Super gracias! for a fun and helpful Flamenco dance course. You’re a wonderful and inspirational teacher!"
