Los Angeles' Herencia Flamenca has earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's leading flamenco ensembles, blending a respect for the roots of flamenco with innovative style. The company puts on a show with performers representing flamenco traditions from across Spain, including two very talented and very different dancers originally from Barcelona: company co-founder Yolanda Arroyo and veteran performer Dolores Gimenez, making her U.S. debut after decades of success as a dancer and choreographer in Spain. The company's other co-founder, guitarist Paco Arroyo, hails from Cordoba, while guitarist Vicente Gelo comes from Seville, and singer Sonia Berbel and guitarist Fernando Mejias were both born in Madrid. All these and more will unite for a show that embodies the soul of flamenco, both elegant and explosive. Learn More
