World-renowned Flamenco dance duo comes to Grand Junction

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

The Grand Junction Symphony presents World-renowned Spanish Flamenco dancer Antonio Granjero as he makes his way to Grand Junction for one night only on Friday, October 16th along with featured dancer Estefania Ramirez and his company, EntreFlamenco from Santa Fe.

The performance begins at 7:30pm in the new Colorado DanceSport (formerly La Puerta Dance Studio) location at 421 Colorado Ave.

EntreFlamenco Company was founded by Antonio Granjero in 1998.  Based originally in Madrid, Spain, the company has also extensively traveled the United States and Central America.

Antonio Granjero was born in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) and began his studies of classical Spanish, classical ballet, and flamenco when he was ten years old.  A year-and-a-half later, he made his debut in “Centro Cultural de la Villa” in Madrid and presided over by the prince and the princess of Spain.

Estefania Ramirez began dancing at the early age of four. In her teen years, she began working in the professional dance environment, studying classical ballet, modern dance and African dance forms.  Shortly after, she traveled to London, England and debuted at the Royal Albert Hall. Upon completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre and Dance at the University of New Mexico, she toured nationally with Pablo Rodarte’s Dance España as the principal female dancer.
