Sophia de Leon Sanchez has been studying and dancing flamenco for 15 years. She has had the opportunity to study closely with some of the best performers in Spain including Paloma Gomez, Carmela Greco, Eduardo Guerrero, Raquel Heredia, and Adi Movdat as well as many excellent teachers in the U.S. She has been involved in the organization Dance Chicago for 5 years where she has performed numerous original choreographies in theaters around the city. She has since moved from Chicago to Sonoma, where she is excited to share her knowledge and experience in the art of flamenco in her new home.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
