ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The dancers of Yjastros will step into the fiery footprints of some of Spain’s finest choreographers to celebrate the company’s 29th season this week.
The University of New Mexico’s resident company will debut new choreography. The troupe will interpret the styles of quintessential Spanish flamenco artists visiting Albuquerque, including Manuela Rios and Pedro Cordoba, spun with the dynamic moves of Jose Maya and Concha Jareño.
“They’ve had incredible careers and now they run their own companies,” Yjastros director Joaquin Encinias said. “What these people are doing for Yjastros is not being done anywhere.”
