  • “Absolutely brilliant” Marta Terreciano CEO Residential Gardens.

  • Acceleratingly exciting show on Sunday 25 April at Darling Quarter in Sydney!!! The music, the dancer’s moves, and facial expressions have definitely transported me to a completely different part of the world – to Andalusia and Spain. Performance has moved me so much that I decided to learn to dance Flamenco! Vesna Pandza (Google Review)

  • “I was really happy to see your Flamenco Dance Performance on Anzac Day Sunday 25th April 2021 in Sydney, Australia. As a registered Ballet teacher who has recently taught my students a Flamenco stylized Spanish Dance I would love to have been able to bring my students to see a performance of the quality and standard I saw at this performance. To have them witness the performance techniques, facial expressions, and dance qualities typical of Flamenco Dance. The musicians and singing were excellent to accompany the dancing. Flamenco Dance shows deep ownership and national pride when performed. The performers, one of who I train in Ballet with Antonetta, danced extremely well with outstanding passion and skill. This standard of Flamenco performance is an excellent example and we are fortunate to see it in Sydney. I would love to be able to bring my students to see a performance such as this. Thank you, ” Sans Souci Dance –(Google Review)
