BALLET FLAMENCO ANDALUCIA INSTITUTO ANDALUZ DEL FLAMENCO
This renowned repertory company from Spain includes 17 members directed by award-wining Ruben Olmo, one of Flamenco´s contemporary stars. The Company presents “Metafora” a program that will transport the audience to the emotion, drama and passion of Andalucía, the cradle of flamenco.
Castanets, fans, traditional flamenco “bata de cola” dresses, effervescent heel-and-toe step combinations, along with the power of “escuela Bolera” and the demanding technique and jaw-dropping athleticism of Spanish dance.

“The ensemble is appealingly youthful and energetic” The New York Times
"Next up, alegrías. But alegrías alegrías, in the most classical Seville style. In fact, it appeared on the program as a “tribute to the Seville school dedicated to Matilde Coral”. Five extra-long pale blue batas de cola worn by five women with five large shawls, cante, rhythm and guitar… And just when you’re thinking it can’t get any better, Pastora Galván arrives on stage" De Flamenco
(Rubén Olmo) "and then that phoenix with embroidered wings soared which manages to transcend in its perfect dancing" Flamenco World
