Luciana Proaño
Peruvian Folk Dance

Luciana Proaño is a Portland based Peruvian dancer and artist dedicated to multidisciplinary and cross-cultural work. Her unique aesthetic style shows that her Peruvian heritage and world travels are blended deeply in her subconscious.

Luciana says of her teaching philosophy, “I teach for people to discover something about themselves while enjoying collaboration and community. Mythology fosters open minds in a diverse world where we are a microcosm of that diversity. In the use of archetypes, diversity has convergence.” 


Luciana is part of Young Audience Arts for Learning, a program which brings arts into the schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington.  Kids love her dynamic teaching style and boundless energy.
