Our artists: Verónica Pérez. Flamenco dancer

Verónica Perez - flamenco dancer - Palau Dalmases

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about flamenco?

Flamenco dancing is one of the most recognized elements of the art of flamenco, because it is visually attractive and very passionate and energetic. Although is usually accompanied by singing and instrument playing (guitar and “cajón”), female dancers with their frilly dresses and male dancers with their dark trousers and heeled shoes are recognized globally.

 

This is why we want to introduce you to one of our dancers, Verónica Pérez. She is one of the the flamenco dancers who puts magic on stage when she dances, since she was only a little girl.

Verónica Pérez was born in Barcelona; she comes from a family of great and renowned artists like La Fernanda and La Bernarda de Utrera and this is why she started dancing when she was only 6 years old. She studied with teachers as Paco Carmona, Tamara Carmona, Mónica Fernández, La Chana, Javier de la Torre, La Tani and el Toleo.

When she was 15 years old she begun dancing at Barcelona tablaos as Las Cuevas (Luis Candela ) and Tablao de Carmen Amaya. As a professional dancer she has worked in tablaos and theatres as El Patio Andaluz, La Pinta, Los Tarantos, el Tablao de Carmen Amaya, Las Arenas, Casa Camarón, Teatro Principal, Flamenco Ramblas, Palacio de Congresos y Palau Dalmases.

She has also danced with great artists like Pol Vaquero, Mónica Fernández, Antonio Canales, Nacho Blanco, José Carmona, Blas Córdoba, Antonio Reyes, La Tobala, Pedro Sierra, Sara Flores, El Zambullo, La Fabi, y El Piraña, amongst others. She also teaches at her school “La Flamenca”.
