Flamenco Rosario develops dance and music in traditional and contemporary innovative styles of flamenco.
The company shares its passion for flamenco’s raw power through the annual Vancouver International Flamenco Festival, Artist in Residence, Creative Residency for emerging and mid-career artists, 3-year Professional Training Program, as well as performances and community classes.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Rosario Ancer and Musical Director Victor Kolstee, the company was founded in 1989.
As an interpreter of flamenco dance, Artistic Director Rosario Ancer is interested in growing and evolving the art form. She explores the possibilities of flamenco by crossing the boundaries of history and culture, incorporating dancers from other traditions and collaborating with international dance artists, musicians and vocalists in the development of new work.
