2017 Artist-in-Residence Series Presents Dancer Jesus Carmona from Spain!

We are kicking off our 2017 Artist-in-Residence Series with dancer Jesus Carmona from Spain!

Flamenco dancer Jesús Carmona was born in Barcelona, studied Spanish dance and flamenco, began his career as first dancer of the Ballet Nacional de España and worked in the companies of Carmen Cortés, Güito, Rafael Amargo, Canales, La Truco and Nuevo Ballet Español among others.  After winning the Desplante prize for dance in La Unión in 2012, and debuting with his company “Cuna Negra” in the last Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, he has firmly found a place in the new generation of flamenco artists with a lot to say and a lot to dance.

He will also be one of the headline performers for the 30th annual Flamenco Festival Internacional de Albuquerque in June!

Jesus will perform in our Pop-Up flamenco tablao shows in our studio and will also teach a series of workshops.

July 2016:

3-Day Flamenco Dance Workshop with “África de la faraona - hija de pilar montoya manzano of the Farruco Family dynasty” for the first time in San Francisco!

Click photo to watch Áfri performing tangos por fiesta!

Flamenco is an enigma. It is danced in fiestas for fun. It's danced seriously in tablaos and theatres. But there are few who have unlocked its secret, its intriguing mix of skill, sensuality, grief, and joy.

One of those was the great Pilar Montoya Manzano, la gran Faraona, daughter of the dynasty maker, el Farruco and aunt of Farruquito.

Her tangos and her bulerias are revered far and wide by all who understand their complexities. África inherited this legacy and the talent to continue it.

Flamenco, as danced by her daughter África (Áfri), la de la Faraona, will bring tears to your eyes, joy to your heart, and laughter to your soul.

Please join us for this wonderful opportunity!

About La Lupi

From her early days, Susana Lupiáñez Pinto, "La Lupi," was already dedicated to flamenco training and performance. She honed her skills at the Conservatorio Superior de Málaga, where she alternated her studies with performances at flamenco tablaos. Years later, it was on one of these stages that guitarist Juan Maya "Marote" saw talent in her dance and took her to work in Madrid. In the capital, she worked for three years in Marote's dance and contemporary flamenco company, going on tour throughout Spain. At the same time, she extended her studies with maestros of the likes of Cristóbal Reyes, Paco Romero, Carmela Greco, La Tati, Rafael de Carmen, and Juan de Juan.

 In 2007, La Lupi was awarded the First Prize for "Siguiriyas" and the Second Prize for "Alegrías" at the national La Perla de Cádiz contest. In addition to numerous stage presentations, she was an instructor at the Music and Dance Ateneo of Málaga. She also teaches courses outside of Spain. Her Flamenco School, located in Málaga, has trained solo artists of the likes of Rocío Molina, and the company members of Sara Baras, Antonio el Pipa, and Mercedes Ruiz.

 In 1999, La Lupi founded her own Flamenco Company, which she directs and choreographs, together with guitarist Curro de María. With shows like "Lo que Lellega al Alma" and "7 Historias Hacen una Vida," she has performed for years at theaters all over the world and international festivals such as those of Düsseldorf, Mont de Marsan, Chicago, Madrid's Suma Flamenca and CIMA Festival in Monte Argentario, among many others.

 The three-day workshop with La Lupi will take place on March 14, 15 and 16. At 9 pm on March 16, we will have a “Café con Lupi” event at the Cadillac Bar & Grill in San Francisco, where Lupi will share her experiences as a professional flamenco dancer.

“Yo Soy!” School Programs / Lecture Demonstrations

San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding areas…

Theatre Flamenco has been working in schools for over 25 years and has entertained and exposed thousands of young minds to the art of all forms of Spanish dance.

For the school presentations, called “Yo Soy!”, Theatre Flamenco brings a guitarist, a singer, and two dancers. We give a forty-five minute lecture/demonstration about Spanish dance, including the castanets, the dresses, the footwork, and the history of the development of flamenco. We also involve the students by teaching them the rhythms of flamenco through palmas (hand clapping).

The excitement, color, and brilliance of Theatre Flamenco’s presentation is an excellent tool to excite young minds and inspire them. The response to Theatre Flamenco’s lecture/demonstrations are always enthusiastic, both from the students and the administrators.

Please welcome Theatre Flamenco to your school! We would love to entertain and teach you about the wonders of flamenco.
To book Theatre Flamenco in your school, please call (415) 531-1141.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are available with Mr. Santos, who has been dancing and teaching for thirty years and works with beginners as well as advanced students. Working with your abilities, his private lessons will develop you as a dancer and help you to understand the mechanics of the rhythms of flamenco. Miguel’s private instruction will build on what you have learned in your regular classes, but will focus only on you and your own development as a dancer.

Mr. Santos loves teaching flamenco dance and encourages all students of all levels to take private lessons as there are beautiful things to be developed at all levels and abilities.
