The Grand Junction Symphony presents world-renowned Spanish Flamenco dancer Antonio Granjero in a rousing return to Grand Junction for one night only on Thursday, September 29th. Antonio along with featured dancer Estefania Ramirez take the Avalon stage with their full company, EntreFlamenco Santa Fe.
The performance begins at 7:30pm in the Avalon Theatre and all seating is reserved.
EntreFlamenco Santa Fe was founded by Antonio Granjero in 1998. Based originally in Madrid, Spain, the company has traveled extensively around the United States and Central America. They are returning to Grand Junction after a sold-out performance at Grand Junction DanceSport last October.
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.
Ignite your senses and experience world-class Spanish dance in Grand Junction on Thursday, September 29th.
