Jaleo Flamenco

Formed in 1988 by award winning artists from Seville, Jaleo first toured outside Spain during the autumn of that year. The performances were received with such enthusiasm that plans for another autumn tour the following year were immediately undertaken.

During August 1991 Britain’s Granada Television spent a week in Seville filming a full length documentary about Jaleo shown for the first time on British TV in February the following year and the company’s already rigorous touring schedule became steadily more demanding each year.

Over the past years their innumerable stage performances, television appearances, radio broadcasts, workshops and recordings have made a considerable contribution to the general understanding and appreciation of this art form.

For two decades Jaleo have captivated the attention of audiences of all ages with the universal appeal of their art and have firmly established an international reputation as a very exciting, colourful and dynamic dance company. Their authentic and charismatic approach to performance has won them many followers and considerable acclaim from both press and public alike.

Jaleo combine the essential qualities of flamenco with an innovative spirit representing flamenco as one of today’s most dynamic art forms.
