Victor Fernández
The talents of this incredibly versatile dancer were recognised by major international artists from the start.

He toured China with the Ballet Flamenco de Madrid, and is part of Rafael Aguilar Dance Company, performing in major theaters in Germany, China and Taiwan, Dresden and Shanghai.

Juan José Suárez Laso
A gypsy singer from Extramadura Juan has spent more than 20 years touring and collaborating with top flamenco artists such as Andrés Marín, Mario Maya, Remedios Amaya Antonio Canales, Rafael Amargo & Belén Maya as well as composing music for dance, theatre and film. He has absorbed wide ranging musical influences throughout his career and continues to develop his own unique & expressive flamenco voice.

La Joaquina
Founder member, choreographer and director of Flamenco Express. She has worked with Christina Hoyos, Paco Peña and others in Madrid, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Paris and throughout Europe.
Recent Collaborations include  ‘Spaces in Between’ 2007 with Athina Valha and Candoco. Principle soloist ‘Splinter In The Flesh’ with the Hellenic National Dance Company at the Athens Megaron

‘Leading the dancers, La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression. Her feet rattle off tempestuous beats, her sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable, there is certainly no empty prettiness in her dance.’ Emma Manning. The Stage

Chris Clavo
A founder member and musical director of Flamenco Express, he began playing the guitar at fourteen and studied with flamenco maestros Carlos Heredia, Diego Amaya and Pepe Justicia. He has performed throughout Britain and Europe with Flamenco Express, with flamenco jazz virtuoso Eduardo Niebla and Iraqi pop sensation Jassim.
‘Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision.’ Staffordshire Post.
