Carla Luna, Founder and Director of Dance Arts Academy,
is widely recognized for her eloquent and lyrical dance style. With classical training in Los Angeles
under the ballet maestra Carmelita Maracci, "Escuela Bolera" with Jose Fernandez, and in many other dance
disciplines, including jazz, modern, and afro-cuban, Carla brings a wealth of experience to her work.
She founded the Carla Luna Flamenco Dance Ensemble, which toured from 1991 to 1994,
and presented her company in traditional programs rich with the cultural heritage of Spanish music and dance.
Carla's goal is to provide a forum for cultural interchange and to foster an appreciation
of dance and music from around the world.
Dance Arts Academy is the result of Carla's determination and long held vision to see such
a place in the heart of Los Angeles.
