Here is What Dance Teachers Have to Say:

Puela Lunaris has far exceeded my expectations for this training!

jesska is a graduate of the Puela Lunaris' Spanish Skirt Dance Teacher Training, she has learned the foundations of barefoot flamenco for bellydancers and moreHer level of expertise and ability to break down every detail in every step has made this online course feel as though I was taking it in an actual dance class rather than virtually.  Puela provided so much information that covers not only the technique of the dance but the culture, history, and life behind the dance, which made me feel more and more comfortable and knowledgeable of the Spanish Gypsy Skirt Dance.

Since I’ve started my online teacher-training, I have developed a more in-depth warm up targeting muscles throughout the entire body.  In addition, I have become clearer in my breakdown of combinations by applying the Lunaris’ numeric, kinesthetic, and syllabic technique.

Every dollar spent has been worth it!
Jesska, Founder BaileDance Company, New York City


This course has changed how I think of myself.
I am excited to say that I now think of myself as a dance teacher.

Natasha is a graduate of the Puela Lunaris' Spanish Skirt Dance Teacher Training, she has learned the foundations of barefoot flamenco, marketing skill for dancers and moreMy main hesitation in taking the course was around having the confidence to think that I would ever be able to be a dance teacher. During the course I learnt techniques for teaching, was provided with a wealth of background information and was given a clear and strong teaching structure.  This gave me the confidence to begin teaching dance, and to enjoy teaching dance.

I was amazed and impressed by the level of detail covered by the course, and the clear, concise way in which it was organised into bite size chunks which made it feel accessible. I would recommend this course to all those who love Spanish Gypsy Skirt Dance and would like to teach it.

Thank you Puela !!

Puela made sure everyone got what they needed!

Maureen is a graduate of the Puela Lunaris' Spanish Skirt Dance Online Teacher Training, she has learned the foundations of barefoot flamenco, marketing skills for dancers, history of flamenco and moreThis online course is structured very well. The multi media approach is fantastic, backed up by email and facebook support. Although I couldn’t work around the office hours, I felt I was included in what was going on, and was able to feel very encouraged and appreciated.  The set up is comprehensive- Puela has made sure everything the student needs is there, with the updates, links and homework.

I  have benefited from this training by learning about the Spanish gypsy skirt dance; choreography, musicality, palmas, also the subtleties of flamenco styles, as well as being able to say what you think and comment on articles and ideas.   I appreciated the articles  and videos very much, as I know how much hard work, dedication and care that all took.

Puela made sure everyone got what they needed, and if there was any problem, she was very patient and bent over backwards to make sure it was solved. The pastoral care on this course is excellent. I  also feel I can  talk much more knowlegeably about flamenco. This training has filled in a lot of gaps for me.

Now I have the vocabulary to break down the moves, as well as the imagery!

Puela is THE source to learn from!
Elena Rose is a graduate of the Puela Lunaris' Spanish Skirt Dance Online Teacher Training, she has learned the foundations of barefoot flamenco, marketing skills for dancers, history of flamenco and moreI have benefited from this training in many ways. I gained knowledge about the Spanish gypsy culture, notable figures in the flamenco dance and music, learned dance terminology, developed and improved my musicality. We were provided with great structure and format for our class in lesson plans. The marketing modules were great and very thorough.

My hesitation was if I had the time to complete exercises and be as involved as I need to be since I had started a new job. I love having the modules and videos to read and watch over and over again.  Having the ability to print out the lesson plans and other information. I enjoyed having the facebook group and being able to see the other teachers’ comments on this dance subject. Puela made herself available for discussions each week and she set up a time to go over and give helpful insight after we submitted our teaching videos.

This training has helped me to have a better ear to listen to the music and work on my musicality and counting out the phrases.  Puela has given different options as to help our students so we can teach them in different ways to stay on time with the music.

Yes! I would recommend this training. Puela pays attention to detail and provides a wealth of information. She is very passionate about preserving these dances and I am so happy that she is willing to share and to provide historical information along with great music as part of the Spanish Gypsy skirt dance teacher training program. I am happy to be a part of this program for I believe Puela is THE source to learn from.

Thank you Puela for taking the time to provide this Spanish Gypsy skirt dance teacher training experience and all your hard work in putting this together along with the production of the video modules!

In case you don’t know me, I would like to share with you why am I qualified to lead you on this path.

Teaching dance for me is a magical adventure that allows me to meet wonderful people and gives me the freedom to live anywhere I want in the world. And I can show you, step by step, how to achieve this for yourself.

Puela Lunaris leads teachers training online for bellydancer, barefoot flamencoI have been making a living as a dance teacher for the last 20 years and counting. During these many years I have discovered multitude of important inner and outer success strategies that you are going to benefit from.

I wish I had a training like this when I got started! It would have saved me years of trial and error trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t work.

Furthermore, besides my extensive expertise as a teacher, I am also the eternal student. I am always investing in my own professional development. And, I must tell you: it more than pays off.

Not only have I earned a B.A. in Dance Education from the State University of New York, I have also accomplished many teacher trainings and certification programs myself, including:

  • Dance Education Laboratory’s Year-Long Teacher Training
  • National Dance Institute: Dance Teacher Training Intensive
  • Community Word Project’s Year-Long Multidisciplinary Teaching Artist Program
  • Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training Certification by the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies
  • Chair-Yoga Teacher Training Certification by the Integral Yoga Institute International

Puela Lunaris is a disciple of the legendary maestro el farruco, grandfather of farru and farruquitoIn the field of Flamenco, I have been blessed to study under some of the most legendary gypsy dancers of all time, such as Maestro “El Farruco,” Matilde Coral and Estrella Morena.

In the field of bellydance, I’ve completed ethnographic field research in Morocco, Iraq Jordan, and -of course- Spain.

Always fascinated by world dance diverse ethnic traditions, I have also learned a great deal of dancing in the kitchens of families from Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Armenia, Lebanon and India.

My classical ballet training under the great Adolfo Leon in Madrid, Spain, has been as well a great foundation for my dance career.

However, what I think has made me a sought after instructor in bellydance circles is my extensive research on dances of Morisco, Gypsy and Sephardi origins from my native Spain. Specially, my dedicated work to save Zambra and different Barefoot Flamenco styles from danger of extinction, like the Spanish Gypsy Skirt Dance that you will be learning (and teaching) during this training.

Thousands of successful, smart women around the world are learning, practicing and enjoying my Spanish Gypsy Skirt Dance. I can humbly say that this choreography is an Amazon best-seller. So, there is a warm market waiting for you.

This dance appeals to women in general and to Bellydancers in particular because is very different from the footwork-based Flamenco style you see around.

Instead of sounding like a human machine gun, you sway your hips and ripple your skirt into passionate flames with a feminine mystique that leaves your audience wanting more.

This is a trophy photo! These Gypsy grandmothers are the matriarchs of several clans of the most famous Gypsy performers in Spain called Gypsy Dynasties. If you are like me, having had the opportunity and the honor to learn directly from them is the ultimate dream come true for a cultural dancer.

As the founder of Dances of the World Society, my mission is to rescue dance and music traditions in danger of extinction by documenting them audio-visually in their natural environment. I have exclusive footage illustrating the essence of Gypsy culture in Spain, some of which I will be sharing with you during our training.

As far as my teaching experience goes, my list is too long. So I will only highlight a few special places: I have taught at Peter Gabriel’s W.O.M.A.D. Festivals, The Omega Institute, Hollins University, The Performing Arts Network in Miami Beach, The Centro Andaluz de Danza in Seville, The Escuela de Música y Danza in Madrid, The Rakkasah/Spring Caravan Festival, The Juilliard School, The CUNY Dance Department, The New York Open Center, and The Instituto Cervantes in New York City. Furthermore, I have been a dance Teaching Artist with the prestigious New York City Center for 11 years and a licensed per diem dance teacher with the NYC D.O.E for 4 years.

Puela Lunaris with Deepak Chopra right before performing for one of deepak's book launch in new york citySome of my most memorable performances have taken place at Alexander the Great’s Throne Room during The International Babylon Festival 1999 (Iraq), Teatro de la Villa (Madrid), and Goddessdance (New York City). It was a delight to perform for members of the Royal Jordanian family in Amman, as it was to perform for Former Vice-president Al Gore and Dr. Deepak Chopra at the Alliance for the New Humanity in San Juan (PR). I have also had the pleasure to enjoy numerous TV appearances including all major National Television Networks in Spain, R.A.I. (Italy), Univision, NBC, CNN and PBS in the U.S.A.

Moreover, based on my 20+ years as a dance teacher and workshop leader, I have developed the Successful Presentations Skills™ methodology used by top executives and dynamic entrepreneurs whom I coach in New York City.

I am not telling you all these things about myself to impress you. I only wish to impress upon you the fact that I have the capability and expertise to nurture you. And, that throughout our training, I will be lovingly dedicated to your success as a dance teacher.

In a confusing and stressful world, this training is an oasis where you can renew yourself, enjoy community, connect with your essence as a dance teacher, make your mark in the world by passing down a dance style in danger of extinction and make money teaching the uplifting Spanish Gypsy Skirt Dance.

Do I need to be technologically savvy to participate in this online training?
No. You don’t need to be technologically savvy, but you need to be technologically literate on a basic level.
