Reviews
"Leading the dancers, La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression. Her feet rattle off tempestuous beats, her sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable, there is certainly no empty prettiness in her dance.
- Emma Manning. The Stage

"Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision. "
Staffordshire Post.

This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina
Time Out

Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement
South Wales Evening Post

Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores.
- Dance Europe

An unforgettable evening.
