Flamenco is a family affair with this company. Valeria Scannura and daughter Anjelica Scannura are Co-Artistic Directors of the Ritmo Flamenco Dance and Music Ensemble. You may remember Anjelica from So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 3 where she made it into the choreography round!
Father Roger Scannura is a renowned composer-guitarist, and and accompanies many classes.
Ritmo Flamenco have received acclaim for their brand of flamenco that refuses to be formulaic with their troupe of dancers and musicians who have performed in concerts world-wide. Highlights of their tours have been: The Malta International Arts Festival, Luminato, The Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, The Zihuatanejo Guitar Festival in Mexico, The Just Strings Festival in Napa Valley, California, and most recently a concert in Amman, Jordan at the Odeon Theatre.
There are many courses for new students starting in January and February as well as continuing courses for more advanced students. They have recently moved to Liberty Village at 19r Atlantic Avenue, near King and Dufferin.
