About Clara Ramona:

Internationally renowned dancer/chorographer/producer/teacher Clara Ramona has been a unique voice in Spanish Dance and Flamenco for over 30 years. Clara began her training in ballet and traditional dance at the age of five in her native Philippines. She continued her training in the US at Aina Janson Ballet Academy, the Boston Ballet, and the Boston Conservatory of Music and Dance, where she obtained her BFA in choreography, pedagogy and classical ballet technique, modern dance, jazz and Spanish dance and flamenco. She became principal dancer and choreographer for the Ramon de los Reyes Spanish Dance Theatre soon after graduation. It was here she created her highly acclaimed Carmina Burana, which toured the Americas and Europe. She furthered her studies of Spanish classical dance and flamenco with masters such as Manolo Vargas and Antonio de Cordoba in Mexico and in Spain with Ciro, La Tati, Jose Granero, and Tomas de Madrid, among others.

Clara founded her own dance company in Madrid, Ballet Española de Clara Ramona, gaining critical and public notice for her stagings of both traditionally themed (El Amor Brujo and Sombrero de Tres Picos) as well as innovative works (Miles Davis’ Solea, Stravinsky’s The Rites of Spring). She and her company collaborated with flamenco artists of stature such as La Tati, Tomas de Madrid, and Antonio Alonso, Miguel Angel and her sons, flamenco stars Isaac de los Reyes and Nino de los Reyes.

Clara has had an extraordinary impact on the spread of flamenco in Asia. Over the past 15 years, she has conducted regular workshops in Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Japan, and has also toured throughout China with her production of Carmen, which included company of 25 Spanish performers. She founded Centro Flamenco de Danza Clara Ramona in the Philippines in 2005, and in 2010, moved her school to Hong Kong with an extension in Beijing. As Director of Clara Ramona Centro de Danza Flamenca and Clara Ramona & Co in Hong Kong, she holds year-round classes and presents workshops and performances with some of the greatest talents in flamenco today including (in addition to her sons Nino and Isaac) dancers Alfonso Losa, Pol Vaquero, Kelian Jimenez, and Adrian Santana and musicians Jorge Pardo, Sabu Porrina and Rafita de Madrid.

Locally, Clara has taught as a faculty member of the Boston Conservatory of Music and Dance, the Walnut Hill School of Performing Arts and Harvard University Dance Program, in addition to leading seminars at Boston University School of Fine Arts, and Bates College Dance Festival.

In 2012, Clara made her acting debut starring in the film In Nomine Matris, which won Best Picture at the International Film Festival Manhattan.
