Naranjita Flamenco is Orange County's Premier Flamenco Dance Group. Our dancers have been performing at local Spanish restaurants in both Orange County & Los Angeles for over 10 years. These dedicated dancers, singers & guitarists have each lived in Spain and studied with the great flamenco masters of our time.
The art of flamenco is one of the most visually impressive & expressive forms of dances so whether your event is intimate or large scale, you will experience something special. We are available for all types of personal events such as weddings, birthdays & anniversaries but we also specialize in large scale corporate events as we have group dances as well as the traditional solos.
Insurance: $1,000,000 - Comprehensive General Liability
Flamenco is one of the most expressive and exciting art forms to watch. The emotional singing, the sensual dancers, the melodic guitar playing, the rhythmic hand-clapping & footwork all come together to make for a dramatic and fun experience - the audience may even be invited to try it with us! Our clients can relax knowing their guests will have a spectacular time.
Additional Booking Notes
We will be bringing a wood floor as our stage & a sound system to amplify our singer & guitarist. We need you to provide us with ample & level space for our stage and an easily accesable power outlet. If you'd like our performance to be a surprise, you may want to consider preparing a room for us to wait in. We would also need to schedule a time that works for you when we could set up & break down our stage and sound system.
Naranjita Flamenco consists of dancers Richard Chavez, Justine Grover, Marcela Aguayo, Lisa Smith, Emily Burgos, & singer Anahi Vazquez. To create the live flamenco experience we always bring a guitarist to perform with us. We are a dedicated group as many of us are full time flamenco professionals and flamenco teachers. Individually we bring our unique style to each performance to create a one-of-a-kind show every time.
You can expect to see castanets in every show. We may also include dances with shawls, fans & canes. We have both group dances as well as solos. Our shows typically range from 30 minutes to a full hour. The dancers will always be fully dressed in the most beautiful traditional flamenco outfits.
Flamenco shows require special floors that allow the percussive footwork to be heard - these floors also protects the clients floors from being damaged - so we bring our own.
We also bring our own sound equipment to amplify both our guitarist and our singer.
The team providing the talent:
Our set list will often includes the traditional folk dance from Seville called Sevillanas, including castanets. Depending on the length of the show we'll include several of the traditional flamenco dance solos. Then we'll end with some Gypsy Kings style of rumba where we invite the audience to participate and conclude with our Fin de Fiesta Bulerias.
