New York Flamenco Group 1

Established in 1979, this New York Flamenco Group has performed throughout New York City and on tour, continually refining and honing its cutting-edge mix of Spanish and Latino cultural styles.

While each dancer dazzles in traditional flamenco style, the repertoire also includes solo and ensemble numbers set to Cuban, Puerto Rican and other Caribbean or South American forms. Both dancers and musicians combine their strength in Flamenco technique with their love for the spicy, tropical Salsa grooves.
