Flamenco Express Reviews

"Unlike some of the splashy and slightly pretentious star-name shows at the Sadler’s festival flamenco last month, this performance is totally direct; it’s immediate, involving and completely beguiling."
Exeunt Magazine

"Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores."
Dance Europe

"This feisty flamenco company deliver the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina"
Time Out

"This is a fiery ensemble production where every spark of personality is kept alight and creative diversity is given the space to breathe but remain faithful to flamenco’s roots."
King’s Lynn News

"..what was surprising, however, was the sheer power and energy displayed by the dancers during this vibrant celebration of Spanish culture. Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement."
South Wales Evening Post.

"Flamenco Express transported the audience to an imaginary Spanish haven during a musical journey laced with passion, grace and immense artistry. The cold, grey and windy weather outside seemed a million miles away."
