It's Emilio Ochando up close and personal.

Award winning dancer and choreographer Emilio Ochando will be in Portland offering workshops November 15-17. 

Read about Emilio's numerous awards and see video of his dancing below.

Emilio has been loved by everyone during past workshops comes highly recommended by Ricardo. Let me tell you why...

  • He is a fabulous dancer (and I mean fabulous. It is such a treat to watch him.) This means instant inspiration along with lots of instances to put pictures of him in your mind.

  • He is a skilled, patient, and organized teacher. He'll show us cool moves and break them down to make it possible for you to really get them.

  • He is a gifted choreographer and so creative. (He was recently awarded first place in the Certamen de Danza Española in Madrid and first place in the 2016 Talent Madrid Contest - That's BIG.) This means fresh and super-cool moves.

  • He has tons of energy to give to us.

  • And, of course, he brings the essence of España and flamenco, that special energía that we just can't get every day (most days) here in Portland.

  • Oh, and he's fun and so, so sweet and giving.
