"I have been a flamenco student on-and-off for over 15 years. I have spent the last three years or so studying with Wendy and the Clinard Dance Theatre. Wendy has a unique approach to flamenco that offers all levels an opportunity for growth. On a personal note, her technique style has allowed me to dance without any pain in my knees which was an ongoing issue historically from previous years of flamenco and my jogging hobby. Dancing in the Pilsen Art Walk on the second Friday of the month has been a wonderful way to gain performance experience in a low pressure setting. Studying flamenco with Wendy, she constantly reminds me of why I love this art form: freedom of expression of your true self in a way that is honest and full of passion. She reminds me to also be forgiving as there is always something new to learn or improve upon. I'm excited for the Friday show and here's to many more with Wendy and the Clinard Dance Theatre!"
