Lisa Montes began the study and performance of Spanish dance at the age of seven, with her grandmother, Dame Maria del Carmen. Lisa is highly trained in the classical, regional and flamenco dances of Spain. Highlights of Lisa's career include dancing with the Michigan Opera Theater in Bizet's 'Carmen', and performing with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in their presentation of the music of Manuel de Falla. Lisa began instructing dance under the direction of her grandmother. She was later invited to perform and teach a master class in the U.K., and then by Henry Ford Community College's Full Circle Dance Company in 2011. Lisa has recorded and performed with Sean Blackman's highly regarded local ensemble, 'In Transit'. In the U.S. and in her annual travels to Spain, Lisa has had the opportunity to study with various masters of Spanish dance, including Paco Alonso, Wendy Clinard, Omayra Amaya, Sonia Olla, Vida Peral, Estefanía Martínez, Raimundo Benítez, Pilar Fajardo, Javier Martos and Judit Cabrera. Lisa is also a founding member of Spanish Dance Company El Alma Española. Although inspired by many of the greats of Spanish dance, her truest inspiration will always be her grandmother.BACK TO TOP
