Conchita Espinosa Dance in Spain

From March 13 through March 23, for 10 days, CEA dancers experienced the CEA Cultural Immersion Trip to Spain.

In addition to taking class at the most prestigious and recognized conservatories and dance schools in the country, they watched professional dance rehearsals at the Alicia Alonso Institute and Ballet Nacional de España, watched performances, and immersed themselves in the history and culture of Spain.  Read more >

This was an incredible and enriching experience for our young dancers! To learn more about the CEA Educational Travel Programs, click here.

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, Conchita Espinosa Academy and Conservatory of the Arts came together to honor our founder, Conchita Espinosa, on what would have been her 105th birthday.

There was truly no better way to celebrate Conchita's legacy than through music. We are eternally grateful to our incredibly talented and generous music faculty for so lovingly proposing the Conchita Day Concert and coming together to give our community the gift of music. It is unbelievable that together we house the number and calibre of professional musicians and extraordinary individuals who make up our music department.

Thank you.
YOU ARE Conchita's legacy.

YOU ARE the example we trust our students will live up to - examples of trust, generosity, collaboration and love, and this evening was one to remember forever.

BRAVO!

Hispanidad 2018

On Saturday, November 3rd, the Conservatory celebrated Hispanidad 2018. This year's annual Hispanic Heritage performance, directed by Spanish dance department head Marisol Moreno, represented exactly what Conchita is about. The spirit of collaboration and mutual respect among our teachers and students was evident in the performance. Hispanidad 2018 was a collaboration among the Spanish dance, Music, Voice and Theatre departments, with every teacher involved bringing his or her style to the table, coming together to create an impressive evening of music and dance, performed exclusively with live music. Our sincerest gratitude and respect goes out to Marisol, and to all the teachers involved: Leiza Mendez and Cristina Masdueño (Spanish dance), Anaida Carquez and Edgar Sanfeliz (voice), Norman Milanes (clarinet), Jose A. Guibert (violin) and Alison Elliott (theatre).

A group of performers shared the holiday spirit with the elderly community at Harmony Health Center Miami.

 

They did a beautiful job sharing their talent and opening their hearts to those in need. They handed out tons of gifts from the Conservatory Re-Gifting Drive and then spent the afternoon chatting and playing games with the members of the Harmony community. Thank you to Maria Ofelia Armas for inspiring our students to share their gifts and open their hearts. The true meaning of Christmas is to give to those in need, and the best gift we can give is our time, our ears to listen, and our hearts to love. Thank you to all who attended and to our amazing Conservatory moms for their help and support!



Leonel Morales Concert at Master Class at CEC

On October 1, 2018 we were honored to welcome renowned pianist, Leonel Morales (www.leonelmorales.com) to the Conchita Espinosa Conservatory of the Arts. He gave an incredible concert in honor of Hispanic Heritage, honoring some of the great composers from Cuba and Spain, including Albeniz, Soler, Cervantes and Lecuona. It was an emotional evening due to the relationship Mr. Morales has had with the Conservatory Music Faculty for so many years. He grew up and studied with many of our faculty members and it had been over 30 years since he had seen many of them. The mutual connection, love and respect witnessed that evening was an inspiration to everyone in the audience.

On Tuesday, October 2, five of our piano students had the opportunity to perform for him and participate in a special master class geared toward our Conservatory music teachers. Congratulations to Christopher Cuesta, Amira Avellan, Gabriella Barcia, Kassandra Labiada and Mateo Oliva for a job well done. They all played beautifully and took great advantage of the opportunity to learn from this master teacher. Felipe Diez, clarinet student at CEC, also had the opportunity to perform for Mr. Morales and did a wonderful job! We are so proud of our music students and teachers, for the great work they are doing!
