Caminos Flamencos was founded by Emmy Award-winning dancer and choreographer Yaelisa. The mission of Caminos Flamencos is to create and present contemporary, traditional and theatrical dance programs showcasing artists from Spain and the U.S., which reflect the changing face of flamenco in the 21st century. Their programs seek to preserve the legacy of Spain's rich artistic heritage, and bring them to people of all backgrounds, enriching the lives of people with Spanish and Hispanic ancestry, and of the community at large.
Yaelisa and Caminos Flamencos have recently graced the stages of the San Francisco Opera, the Segerstrom Concert Hall as guests with the Pacific Symphony, the Marines Memorial Theater, Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco, the Broadway Performance Hall in Seattle, as well as being the featured guest artists of the Adelaide Guitar Festival in Adelaide, Australia. Her choreographies are commissioned around the world and in particular, her version of Ravel’s "Bolero" has captivated audiences around California. The Company and its renowned artists are some of the finest flamencos outside of Spain, led by Yaelisa and virtuoso Music Director Jason McGuire "El Rubio," one of the most watched guitarists on YouTube and the co-founder of Doctor Compás.
