yaelisaRaised by her Spanish mother, also a Flamenco performer, Yaelisa was surrounded from birth by the rhythms, gestures and vocal laments of the art in its purest form. Her artistic training has come from many of the great Spanish masters, including Ciro, Manolo Marin, Jose Galvan and El Guito. She has toured as a guest artist in festivals and concerts in Spain, Japan, Mexico, the Middle East, and throughout the United States.

Since 1992, Yaelisa has spent extensive periods of time living and performing in Spain, presenting her choreography both there and in the U.S. Her choreographies have been commissioned by several modern dance companies, including John Malashock & Company, Rose Polsky and Collage Dance Theatre. In 1995 she was one of 11 choreographers in Spain and the only American choreographer invited to present a piece at the prestigious Certamen de Coreografia in Madrid.

In 1996 she returned to the U.S. where she continues to choreograph, develop and train dancers for her company. Her innovative theatrical presentations has established her as a choreographer of merit; she is the recipient of an Emmy Award for Choreography in 1993 for the PBS program, "Desde Cadiz a Sevilla," and a Choreography Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1996.

Yaelisa is the Artistic Director of Caminos Flamencos. The Company presents traditional flamenco productions, and specializes in original works, which expand upon the vocabulary of flamenco through collaborations with artists in the fields of modern, jazz, and ethnic dance and music.
