Mariano is available to coach the professional or semi-professional dancer in their repertoire, to prepare the repertoire for stage with emphasis on evaluation of the choreography, musicality and phrasing.
Mariano coaches in Spanish Dance and Flamenco Moro.
"Always a Spanish dancer by profession, I have spent over 50 years as a student of dance.
I am thankful to have had the opportunity to study with and personally know many of the greatest dancers of our time.
I feel the responsibility to pass on the gifts of knowledge I've been given."
Mariano Parra, Dancer/Choreographer/Teacher
"If you have been dancing for years, learning steps, compas and choreographies here and there...but..still wonder why you don't look...good...it's ...because you haven't taken classes with Mariano
, a real MAESTRO.
, not only has a microscopic eye, (he won't miss one shakey sound of your feet EVER) he
has the key to open one's body and heart as a dancer to transform into a moving stylistic sculpture.
you will paint your own personal designs of the air and space with perfect technique.
"Mariano Parra is the consummate teacher for dancers of all disciplines.
While you may think you are simply in a dance class, Mariano
works to connect your eyes to your spine, your spine to your hips, your hips to your heels, your heels to your hands, your hands directly to your heart.
It is then your heart and mind begin to overflow through your eyes and you are finally learning to dance.
That's how Mariano
creates these marvelous "dancing beasts" who go to the stage to collect their applause.
