 “A performance packed with passion, elegance, inspiration and breathtaking beauty. The magic of the music and dance allow the audience to take a breathtaking journey.” 

Flamencodanza is a duo collaboration that started five years ago at the Avignon Festival in France. Different elements fuse together in a unique manner producing an award-winning show with beauty and inspiration. Elements of Flamenco, Brazilian music and jazz give the music a variety of colours. The contemporary flamenco dance is made of strength, elegance and beauty. 


Review by actor and director Adam Lazarre-White, Hollywood Fringe 2023:

The dancer was an absolute artist, skilled, charismatic, beautiful and dynamic. The guitar player was masterful, relaxed, and alternating between, featuring his playing, when the dancer was off stage, and perfectly complimenting her, in synch with her, both leading her and following her, when she dramatically appeared on stage, for each piece. She was inspiring. Her feet not only were beautiful to watch, not only acted as the “drums” to her partner’s guitar, but they seemed to bring us back in time, to the roots of the music, the roots of the language, the roots of the culture. You could not take your eyes off her. It was also just the right length of time for the experience, musically, visually, culturally.
