Omayra Amaya is a modern flamenco dancer and choreographer that is deeply rooted in a proud gypsy tradition. As the daughter of flamenco dancers Olga and Curro Amaya and grandniece of the legendary Carmen Amaya, Omayra brings new relevance to flamenco while never losing sight of her legacy.
The Omayra Amaya Flamenco Dance Company features a first class cast of dancers and musicians. The Show, Herencia - A Flamenco Legacy, is a journey from traditional to contemporary flamenco. A show full of surprises that will intensify and climax, taking the audience on an unforgettable experience.
“A savvy and sophisticated choreographer... I dare anyone to take his or her eyes off Omayra Amaya when she is performing the flamenco she was born to dance... a Knockout” Debra Cash, The Boston Globe.
