Noche de Flamenco!

Yaelisa-Dancer

Jason McGuire-guitar

Yaelisa (Artistic Director/ Choreographer) is one of the most gifted Flamenco artists of her generation.  She was surrounded from birth by the rhythms, gestures and vocal laments of the art in its purest form, where her unique improvisational abilities began to flourish.    In 1995, she was one of eleven international choreographers in Spain invited to present her choreography at the prestigious Certámen de Coreografía in Madrid, and the only American choreographer chosen among them.  In 1996, she returned to the U.S. where she continues to develop and train dancers for her company.   She is the recipient of an Emmy Award for Choreography in 1993 and an NEA Choreography Fellowship.  In 2005, Yaelisa & Caminos Flamencos received an Isadora Duncan Dance Award for excellence in the category of “Best Company Performance,” and in 2006 she was chosen as one of ABC-7’s “Profiles in Excellence” Hispanic leadership awardees.


Flamenco guitarist Jason McGuire “El Rubio
” began playing at the age of nine.  Jason has been awarded a California Arts Council Music Fellowship and has been nominated three times for an Isadora Duncan Dance Award.   Jason currently serves as Music Director for both Caminos Flamencos and The New World Flamenco Festival.  Jason released his second album in 2016 with the new progressive flamenco group Terceto Kali, entitled “Terceto Kali,” to rave reviews by music critics nationally and internationally.  The Los Angeles Times recently wrote that “McGuire’s solo managed to be atmospheric and fiendishly complex at the same time.”
