The mission of Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre and School is to enrich our community by drawing people close to the beauty and energy of the flamenco tradition and, by expanding on that tradition, create an innovative art form that explores the issues of contemporary life.
Susana di Palma founded Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre in 1982. One of the few American Spanish dance companies that present both traditional flamenco programs as well as original theater flamenco works; the company is comprised of an ensemble of international artists, dancers and musicians who are renowned for bringing the power, passion and virtuosity of the art of flamenco to American audiences.
“It was great to see a flamenco company dancing this well which also had a sense of humor and such a clear idea of theater.” – Doris Deither, the Villager, New York City
Under the Artistic Direction of Susana di Palma, these innovative flamenco ballets are powerful and provocative theater experiences. The essence of Zorongo Flamenco’s work combines the passionate soul of Spain with the lively innovative spirit of America and relates to contemporary audiences in a way that few companies do. Zorongo Flamenco brings the very essence of Spain to the performance hall.
