"Flamenco Pasión" was founded by Sandra La Espuelita in 2001. Initially comprising a small group of professional flamenco dancers, singers and guitarists based in London UK, the troupe comprised a mixture of Spanish, English and other European flamenco artists and musicians- but with a common passion for and complete dedication to the art form. All had studied flamenco extensively in Spain, and were already widely recognized and respected within the Flamenco community.
Priding itself on traditional "flamenco puro" style, the group quickly became known for the passion and authenticity it characteristically brought to its flamenco shows and performances. With each member of the group intimately acquainted with the style and artistic expression of the others, this made for a unique degree of excitement and originality - particularly within the improvisatory elements of true flamenco expression.
At the same time, it was felt that many of the theatrical and dance agents when looking for flamenco performers for hire did not fully appreciate the unique nature of flamenco as an art form, in particular with respect to its improvisatory style. The performers began to feel limited in what they could achieve in terms of true artistic expression, and it is for this reason that a specialist flamenco agency was set up in the UK in 2006.
The knowledge that professional flamenco musicians bring to their own agency through their own experience as performers cannot be underestimated. As well as this unique musical and artistic expertise, the agency founder also has direct HR experience (at corporate director level) and thus we can justifiably pride ourselves on highly professional results throughout all aspects of our work as specialist flamenco agents (from planning through to performance) and excellent communication with our clients at all times, especially in the area of Corporate Entertainment. We are also specialists in Flamenco Team Building, Team Bonding and Ice Breaking events. Please click here for details.
If you are interested in a flamenco show, or flamenco performers for hire for a special occasion or event (large or small) in the UK, Europe or internationally, please contact the flamenco agency directly. We operate as a specialist dance agency, and tailor quotes individually for each client, dependent on venue, timings, and number of performers (flamenco guitarists, singers and dancers) required. Don't worry if you're not too familiar with how flamenco performances work: as a leading flamenco agent, we are very friendly and can point you in the right direction with no obligation!
Sandra also hosts a Flamenco Blog for general discussion and resources on the UK Flamenco scene.
