Having studied and performed Flamenco since the age of ten, Susy traveled to Sevilla, Spain in 1997 to continue her studies in Flamenco at the Fundacion de Cristina Heeren. After 5 years of intensive training and workshops with renowned professors such as Ciro, Juan de los Reyes, Jose Galvan, Sarai, Eva La Yerba Buena and La Tati, Susy began her professional dancing career, dancing throught Spain, Europe and across the world.

Beginning in 2003, Susy performed in may well regarded theatres, incluiding Teato Albeniz in Sevilla, AMC Theater in New York and Shakespeare Theatre in San Diego, CA. During this time, Susy also performed in countless “Tablados”– a traditional dinner theatre centered around Flamenco performance — ┬áincluding such critically-acclaimed productions as El Arenal, El Palacio del Embrujo, el Patio Sevillano y los Gallos, and Casa Patas, where she had the honor of sharing the stage with renown dancers such as Israel Galvan, Rafael Campallo, and Maria Jose Franco.

After years of traveling, Susy opened her first dance school in Mexico called “Encontrarte” in 2008 and by the fall of 2009, decided to open a new location in McAllen with Mr. Rolando Pacheco. Together they shared a vision of bringing a higher level of professional dance training to the Rio Grande Valley and creating a Mecca to discover and inspire young talent in the region.
