ABOUT MARIA JUNCAL

Native to the Canary Islands, María was born into a family of flamenco blood, the Borruls. María Juncal began her path studying ballet and Spanish classic dance in Tenerife, where she was a pupil of Miguel Navarro, Rosalina Ripoll and her aunt, Trini Borrul. In Madrid, she studied with legendary flamenco stars as La Tati, Güito, Merche Esmeralda and Ciro, and classic dance with Dagmara Brown.

She has worked with the companies of Manolete, José Greco, Güito and “Flamenco bells”, doing tours in France, Spain, German, United Kingdom, Canada, The United States, Japan and China. She excelled as a soloist in the show “Pure Passion”, produced for Joaquín Cortés, and in “The Gypsy Muse” by Paco Peña. In Los Angeles, María has collaborated with Debbie Allen, choreographer, dancer and actress of the series ‘Fame’ in her documentaries on dance.

As invited artist, she took part in the Opera “Carmen” in the Palace of Fine Arts of the City of Mexico. In 2004, she was awarded the National Prize of Flamenco Dance “Antonio Gades” in Cordoba, Spain. In June, 2006 she was awarded the prize to the best soloist choreography in the XV Contest of Choreography of Spanish dance and Flamenco in the Albeniz Theatre of Madrid.

With her shows “Azabache y Miel” and “Instantes” María became an audience favorite along with glowing reviews from Mexico City and Madrid. Additionally, she was a soloist and choreographer in the show “Jarocho”, under Richard O’Neal’s direction, assistant director of ‘Riverdance.’

We welcome María Juncal to Los Angeles for this Vida Flamenca workshop. This will be María’s first workshop in Southern California in over 8 years.

ABOUT IVAN VARGAS HEREDIA

Vida Flamenca is honored to present Iván Vargas direct from Granada, Spain for a rare evening of exhilarating flamenco direct from the gypsy caves of the Sacromonte deep in heart of Andalusia.

Iván comes from one of the most important flamenco families in the world and presents a special show in Burbank with fellow stars Maria Juncal and gypsy singer from Sevilla Jonathan Reyes Jimenez for two performances only.

Iván grew up dancing in the famous gypsy cave ‘Cueva La Rocio’ in Granada, Spain. At the tender age of 8 he premiered in Madrid, discovered by the world-famous dancer Cristobal Reyes where he performed at the prestigious tablao ‘Zambra’. From there his career rapidly expanded, performing in renowned flamenco venues such as Casa Patas, Corral de la Moreria, Cafe de Chinitas and with solo performances at the Bienal de Sevilla, and also abroad, in Italy and the USA. He has danced alongside heavy weights of flamenco including Eva la Yerbabuena and Farruquito as well as flamenco singers Enrique Morente and Jose Merce.

His performances reflects his particular vision and feel for flamenco, yet stays true to his roots of dancing with the sights, sounds, and scents of his hometown. He mixes the energy and knowledge of his youth through collaborations with choreographers Juan Andres Maya and Manolete.

This show combines past, present and future on the same stage. Vida Flamenca welcomes Iván for this special performance here in Southern California.
