Denver Flamenco lovers rejoice!
The Flamenco Fantasy Dance Theatre is the creation of René Heredia, one of the foremost Flamenco guitarists of today. As the Artistic Director of the Flamenco Fantasy Dance Theatre, and as a solo guitarist and with his Flamenco fusion group, he has produced shows and performed around the world.
In 1968 René brought the authentic sounds and sights of flamenco to the Denver region. At his Flamenco Center for Guitar and Dance he teaches classical and flamenco guitar and Spanish and flamenco dance in the true gypsy style.
Maestro Heredia is from Granada, Spain, and is a direct descendant of the gitano flamenco puro tradition as passed down to him by generations of his Gypsy family. As a performer, teacher, choreographer, mentor, and recording artist, Maestro Heredia is credited with bringing flamenco to Colorado and has received numerous awards, including the Governor’s and Mayor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts.
