Flamenco del Lago is a nonprofit organization dedicated to flamenco instruction and performance in Salt Lake City, Utah. It's under the direction of Katie Sheen Abbott who's studied Flamenco for many years and most recently in Sevilla, Spain.
Katie regularly performs throughout Utah with her cuadro which includes: Jake Abbott (guitar and cante), Sandy Meek (guitar), and Julie Sheen (cajon and palmas).
Katie has been dancing forever! While growing up in Utah she studied jazz, ballet, tap and hip-hop. After moving to Baltimore, Maryland for graduate school she fell in love with Flamenco after taking her first Sevillanas class. She studied with Solange Gomes for several years in Salt Lake City and most recently she lived in Sevilla, Spain where she studied with many flamenco maestr@s, including Luisa Palacio, Angel Atienza, Isabel Bayon and Javier Baron. She is excited to share her knowledge and passion for everything flamenco with the community!
She continues her training each year by taking classes from the amazing maestr@s at the Flamenco Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
