Your troupe gave us absolutely one of the best ethnic performances we have ever hosted. You and your performers are fantastic. I hope we work together again!

It was a great show and I believe everyone enjoyed it. Everything was great. I spoke to my older students afterwards on Friday and they were all pleasantly surprised by the dancing...I think they were expecting salsa or something :) I will keep in touch in case I hear of other schools looking for a greatly organized flamenco show. Thanks again!

On behalf of Ethnic Dance Chicago, I would like to thank you very much for performing for the concert for the Chicagoland Spring Fling. Many people have told me how much they enjoyed your performance. I look forward to doing this again sometime in the future.

Thank you! You all were fabulous — and the kids LOVED your performance!!! Sorry for the “enthusiastic” ¡Olés!. :-)
— Linda Davis, Oak School PTO, Hinsdale
Once again, thank you for the wonderful performance! Everyone keeps talking about it! The children really enjoyed it and learned a lot! I loved both shows, and was glad you had time in the second show to go into more specifics, and make a costume change! The children kept talking about the castanets, the ways of clapping, Miguel’s guitar, your gorgeous costumes, the stamping and tapping of the shoes . . . etc. etc. We are still buzzing with excitement here!

I recently had the good fortune to attend your show at the West Shore Community College in Ludington. I was blown away by the awesome performance by you and your company. You have given me another reason to go to Spain, I cant wait. Thank you for coming to Ludington, we would love to have you again anytime.
