Arte y Pureza Flamenco shows are directed by Guitarist Ethan Margolis. Direct from Seville, Spain, Arte Y Pureza Flamenco Company presents professional dancers and musicians whom have garnered rave reviews from around the world. The shows are always different, but they include dancers and singers and a live Flamenco guitarist. Arte y Pureza Flamenco provides a rare look into the purest forms of flamenco music and dance. The shows bring powerful Gypsy singing from the legendary towns of Andalucía. Expect dazzling footwork, unique style as well as exposure to the art of "baile casero," one of the oldest forms of Gypsy song and dance. The dissonant, melancholy notes of the company's guitarists set the musical background for an unforgettable evening. Arte y Pureza is a display of artistry and personality rarely seen outside the intimate bars and private parties of Andalucía.
