They have been working together since the end of 2021 to create music and dance showcasing a variety of original dances created within the flamenco tradition.  Their mission is to bring a taste of Spanish flamenco to audiences in their unique way.   They have created a show with music and dance which draws the mystery, fire, flirtation, anguish and joy of the human experience.
