During a decade, Juan Siddi Flamenco Company’s immersive experience in the passionate and disciplined world of flamenco has reached loyal and growing audiences in Santa Fe, New Mexico and beyond.
Infusing old-world tradition with new attitude, Juan Siddi and his company perpetuates the rich heritage of a centuries-old art form. The remarkable cast ensemble for each production is hand-selected with careful curation guided by the distinct aesthetic of Artistic Director/Choreographer, Juan Siddi.
The Company blends renowned artists steeped in authenticity from Spain and the U.S. and is a key member of a vibrant global flamenco network.
The troupe dates to 2007, when Santa Fe legend Maria Benitez passed the artistic torch to Siddi. Subsequently, the company’s furious footwork drilled through annual seasons at Santa Fe’s Maria Benitez Theatre. Juan Siddi was granted the City of Santa Fe’s Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and became finalist for the Isadora Duncan Award in San Francisco, CA.
The company recently performed at New York City’s Joyce Theater, at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts and spread its wings, touring throughout Hawaii. Besides their history touring nationwide for the past decade, the company toured overseas to Qatar and we’re featured in television broadcasts on NBC, Telemundo and Al Jazeera.
In 2018, Juan Siddi and his company are embarking on a new journey introducing Arte Flamenco Society, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization for the purpose of consistency for a thriving future in Santa Fe and abroad.
