She worked in several professional companies under the direction of Juan Siddi, Antonio Granjero, Carlota Santana, and Yaelisa Petlin. She continued her studies in Sevilla, the birthplace of Flamenco under Juana Amaya, Farruquito, El Torombo, and Angelita Vargas. While in Sevilla she performed at the local tablao La Puerta Sol. Bianca is also an avid holistic practitioner and loves to combine the mind, body, spirit connection. She was able to apply her studies in India while working on Oliver Rajamani’s show, Flamenco India, which incorporated Yoga, Kathak, and Flamenco with a wide ensemble of established musicians ranging from sitar to harp. While working in California she had the opportunity to work with Paquera de Jerez nephew, Jose Mendez.
