Like Spanish flamenco dancers did in the Middle Ages, students move their bodies in fun, new ways to create triumph over any troubles. Miss Coco Flamenco’s fabulously funny flair for character education will have your students stomping out bullying, clapping away bad days, stepping into self-confidence, grabbing their goals, and sharing each other’s awesomeness.

Sharing SEL Strategies Through Body Movement

  • Social Awareness >> Stomping out bullying – Footwork (Taconeo)
  • Responsible Decision-Making >> Clapping away bad days – Rhythmic clapping (Palmas)
  • Self-Awareness >> Stepping into self-confidence – Posture and walking (La postura de la bailaora y del matador; Marcando)
  • Self-Management >> Grabbing their goals – Strong and graceful arm movements (Llamada)
  • Relationship Skills >> Sharing each other’s awesomeness – “Put It All Together” mini-dance sequence (Full llamada)


  • Physical health: Cardio, muscle strength and coordination, bone health, joint flexibility, improved posture and breathing
  • Mental/ emotional health from physical movement: Well-documented direct benefits – uplift in mood and improved intellectual performance – from the neurophysiological (brain-body) communications
  • Body image: Acceptance of what your body is like right now, combined with motivation to achieve body goals according to self – not society
    ***This is a great focus for middle school and high school assemblies
  • Math skills: We build movement sequences to music, and we time our footwork and clapping – that’s real math underneath the art!
  • Human geography: The origins of flamenco are a great way to find Spain, learn some Spanish words, and discover how an oppressed people embraced their hardships while hiding in caves – by creating a new artform to rise triumphant!


Coco Cabrel brings 30 years of flamenco, anatomy, neurophysiology, and leadership experience to your students where she’s taught at every level – from pre-school through grad school and beyond – as a professional flamenco dancer/choreographer AND a teaching medical doctor and academic department chair. A lifelong professional performer, she is an award-winning expert in blending student – and teacher – engagement with evidence-based pedagogy… with such grace and humor, no one will even realize they just learned a ton of life lessons.

Your students will hold their heads up higher, stand quite a bit taller, and stomp, clap, and laugh a whole lot louder – and with more finesse – after their 50 minutes with Lady Miss Coco. She bursts onto your stage/ MPR/ classroom in full, authentic flamenco attire, and everyone gets to join in and move with genuine, curated, recorded music, as Coco safely teaches exactly how the original, ancient flamencos created this unique dance form specifically to overcome their hardships – so you and your students can, too!

Coco, a graduate of Northwestern University’s prestigious Honors Program in Medical Education, has appeared as “The Flamenco-Fit MD” on nationally syndicated “The List TV” six times, ABC10’s “Your California Life” twice, KTLA’s “LA Unscripted” twice, and Spectrum News1 LA. She’s been a speaker and wellness panelist for conferences including Digital Hollywood and Go All In Fest, and she’s been interviewed on many podcasts as well as in Authority Magazine and Thrive Global Magazine. Her podcast interview for Northwestern Intersections was voted one of the Top 3 Podcasts of 2020 by Northwestern University alumni around the world.
