Tara Weatherly (a.k.a. “La Tarara”) began exploring flamenco in 2001 by taking classes at Anda Flamenco in Minneapolis. In 2004 she and three wonderful friends formed Sendero Flamenco and began performing at venues, parties and events around the Twin Cities and beyond. Intrigued by the athletic, graceful and unique style of Osaka born flamenco dancer/choreographer Sachiko, Tara began taking private instruction from her for several years. Tara created Studio Sendero in 2010 and then moved into its new location in the JAX Building in Lowertown St. Paul in October 2011. She is excited to be collaborating with musicians and dancers of various genres, teaching classes and being inspired to create new works.
