Erika Lopez began dancing Flamenco and Spanish classical dance at the age of eight. Her passion for the art led her to make it a lifelong pursuit, studying and performing with professional dance companies in San Diego, San Francisco and Boston. In 1997 she moved to Seville, Spain to study under master teacher Juan de Triana. She’s had the opportunity to study with many dance greats over the years, including Maria Pages, Domingo Ortega, Antonio Vargas and Maria Benitez. Most recently, Erika was a featured dancer in the San Diego Opera’s productions of La Traviata and Don Quixote. She is a performer, teacher and choreographer for Olé Flamenco dance troupe and performs regularly in venues around Southern California.
