Almudena Serrano brings spectacular credentials to the table. She has worked with the companies of Merche Esmeralda, Rafael Amargo and Curro Vélez, and in Tablaos in Sevilla, Madrid, Barcelona and Jerez, such as Los Gallos, El Arenal, Café de Chinitas, Corral de la Morería, and Casa Patas. She was a finalist at the Concurso Nacional de Cordoba earning the Premio de Carmen Amaya por bulerías in 2004 and was a finalist in the Concurso de La Unión in 2006. Some of the many Festival appearances she has made in Spain and internationally include Festival de Jerez in the segment “De Sevilla a Jerez,” directed by Manolo Marín and Angelita Gomez, “Jovenes Flamencos” at the Bienal de Sevilla, “de Larachi 2005” in Paris, and “La Chumbera Camino del Sacromonte” in Granada.
Born in Puerta Santa Maria, Spain, at 13 she began her flamenco studies at the school of Angelita Gómez, while also receiving instruction in ballet at the school of Belén Fernández in Jerez de la Frontera. Afterward, she attended the Matilde Coral Center of Dance in Sevilla on scholarship. There, she trained with artists such as El Mimbre, Manolo Marín, Eva la Yerbabuena, Alejandro Granados, Mario Maya, and Merche Esmeralda. The latter invited her to join her company in the production “Ciclos,” which brought Almudena to Madrid. There, she continued her studies with La China, El Guito, Manolete, Domingo Ortega, Joaquín Grilo, and Rafael Amargo, among others.
She has taught in Europe, Asia and the US, and will be performing at Alegrķas and Centro Espanol in Queens during the month of March.
