Barcelona Flamenco Ballet
Barcelona Flamenco Ballet was founded in 2017 and had the premiere of its first show “Flamenco Reborn” in Barcelona. It became so popular that it was sold out and the event even became popular on social media. Due to its success it was publicised on important billboards nationwide, including at the “Teatro Reina Victoria” in Madrid. With this came more success along with more performances in the south of the country, as well as international Festivals…

The show provides a fascinating exploration into the particular pertinence of these subjects in Spain, highlighting their primary theme of tradition.
