After training under many great flamenco legends since the age of 9, Rocío began her professional career at 18, dancing at tablaos such as Café Ziryab, El Candela and other legendary venues.
She also works internationally with Ballet Rafael de Córdoba, New Spanish Ballet, Ballet Rafael Aguilar, and with Flamenco de Madrid as principal soloist, interpreting Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, and Bizet's Carmen.
Acknowledged heir to the legends of flamenco song, and custodian of its future. A lyrical virtuoso, lifting the audience above pain and care, and the dancer above the stage as if on wings.
'Pedro Sanz offered an intense, evocative solo as the Cantaor'
VIVIEN SCHWEITZER. New York Times 2008
An uncompromising fireball of flamenco, physically exploring and confronting the contortions and complexities of living. Only capable of total commitment and inspiration.
'La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression … tempestuous beats ... sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable...” - Emma Manning. The Stage
A bewilderingly versatile musician in constant telepathic harmony with his fellow artists and the audience.
'Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision. ' Staffordshire Post.
“This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina”. Time Out
