JUNE: El Cuadragésimo at the Joyce:
The highlight of our 40th Anniversary Season at the renowned NYC dance venue.
Last week, you learned a bit about Raquel Heredia “La Repompa” and her artistic background––but did you know that she is entirely self-taught?
Born into a distinguished family of Roma artists, Heredia spent her childhood traveling across the globe with parents Rafaela Reyes and Luis Heredia as they toured. She learned from watching them, certainly, but never took classes. In fact, when her family settled in NYC in the late 90s, working at flamenco tablaos Meson Flamenco and Manila Restaurant, Heredia taught classes at the famous Fazil’s studios before ever having taken classes herself. She drew from her lived experience of growing up within flamenco and learned as she taught!
Now, Heredia returns to NYC! She’s not only teaching a four-day dance workshop in our studios March 8–11 but also offering a free virtual history class on March 5. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to study with the best of the best from Spain––register below.
answer: María Terremoto & Israel Fernández (Top Singers)
Each year, Spain-based flamenco (online & print) publication Guia Flama releases its Flamenco Rankings, which identify the most-mentioned flamenco artists of the past year. While it is solely based on the publication’s mentions, it aims for objectivity in the sense of only counting mentions of distinct/individual performances. It’s a fun way to get a pulse of the most active and talked-about artists in Spain––check out the full rankings above!
The most mentioned singers of 2022 were María Terremoto and Israel Fernández, while the dancers/dance companies were Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía and Sara Baras (who is coming to NYC this spring––keep an eye out for Flamenco Festival news!)
