Karl Wohlwend, Michael Yonchak had never played flamenco music professionally until they met Griset Damas-Roche who came to Columbus in January 2014. Karl and Michael are Associated Professors at Otterbein University and musicians and powerful musicians in their own right! They started playing flamenco music with Griset in late 2015 and together they have made numerous presentations at schools, libraries, universities and private celebrations, trying to promote this passionate art of Spanish origin in Ohio.
Our beautiful songstress is Dolores Ramirez Ruiz. She is from Sevilla, Spain. She used to sing only for family parties, but now he great state of Ohio has motivated her to share her voice with all of us.
Griset Damas Roche was born in Havana, Cuba and studied ballet from the ages of 6 to 18 years old. She then auditioned for the Spanish Ballet of Havana and was granted the position of Soloist. In 1998, she moved to Colombia where she continued to develop her career and managed to leave a mark as a flamenco dancer and teacher. In January 2014, life brought her to Columbus, OH and she quickly became part of the flamenco movement that existed in Columbus and has managed to give a boost to flamenco with the opening of her dance studio UWILLDANCE. This is the only dance studio in Ohio that offers flamenco dance lessons for all levels. Please check out www.uwilldance.com for more information.
Carolina Lopez (“Chana”) danced since childhood: ballet, modern, and some Flamenco in her fatherland of Cordoba (Spain), but surrendered to Flamenco only in Columbus under the late Cynthia Stamps (2006-2012). La Chana then taught Flamenco in Grandview before Griset Damas arrived in Columbus in 2014 to start a new phase. Chana has also taken lessons in Minneapolis and Madrid.
